@Wimpy very nice.
Does it need special ffmpeg patches to get acellerated video playback?
@Wimpy ah. Just read in the blog that arm64 images does not have VC4 acceleration.
@Strit As for arm64 and libraspberry0, I was able to compile it for arm64 but most of the symbols were missing and therefore linking against it was futile.
@Strit Yes, I got them from the ffmpeg source package in the Raspbian archive.
