Paul continued his effort on GStreamer, to make it work with the Allwinner VPU driver and libva backend that we have developed, while Maxime started working on H264.

A good part of the Bootlin team attended ELC last month in Portland, Oregon. After sharing our slides and the videos of our talks, we are now sharing a selection of talks we have found interesting: each Bootlin engineer who attended the event has selected one talk, and made a quick summary.

See our blog post at https://bootlin.com/blog/back-from-elc-north-america-selection-of-talks-from-the-bootlin-team/ for our selection!

The work on Allwinner's VPU continues, and this week Paul worked on making the GStreamer kmssink plugin work with the Allwinner DRM driver, as a first step to enabling GStreamer to play videos decoded in HW by the Allwinner VPU. See Paul's update at https://bootlin.com/blog/allwinner-vpu-support-in-mainline-linux-status-update-week-13/

We're really happy that our Kickstarter campaign to fund the development of a completely upstream and open-source Linux support for the Allwinner VPU has been so successful. It's great to see that upstream Linux kernel development can be funded this way.

See our blog post https://bootlin.com/blog/kickstarter-for-the-allwinner-vpu-linux-kernel-support-successfully-funded/ for more details about this project, and see the long list of contributors!

We would like to thank all the companies and individuals who contributed to this Kickstarter campaign.
