OpenMAX IL wrappers for their DSP codecs, which in turn can be used in
GStreamer with gst-openmax.

Perhaps you can ask in customer support.

The video decompression is completely executed in DSP side.

They'll have to support OpenMAX IL.

I have been using these codecs for a while, but I don't know what's
the public status.
