Enabling MPlayer to Communicate with Intel® Technology
The white paper describes how to reduce processor workload by more than 50 percent using video acceleration API with MPlayer to communicate directly with the Intel® Embedded Graphics Driver.
Media playback on an Intel® Atom™ platform is optimal when video decoding is handled by the video engine instead of the CPU. This frees up the CPU for non-video applications. To use the video engine, an application such as a media player needs to use the appropriate API to communicate with the video driver that controls the video engine.
