Collabora is helping shape the video virtualization story for Chromebooks
Wed, Jun 21, 2023
Collabora’s involvement in VirtIO Video started with the development of a VA-API backend for CrosVM. It has since evolved to encompass two new stand-alone projects that came to be as a direct result of this work. Throughout this series, we aim to describe where we currently stand and document the future work needed to strengthen the codec stack in ARCVM. We will explore how VirtIO Video is used within the ARCVM stack and delve into the role of cros-codecs and cros-libva, enumerating the missing components in the current solution along the way. Finally, we hope to convey our shared vision for the video virtualization landscape on Linux and beyond.
