Disko ported to STi71xx SoC

STMicroelectronics connected the media library of Disko 1.07 to their AV drivers and ported the Disko demo as showcase.

We’re proud to announce that another port of Disko has been done.
Special thanks to the STMicroelectronics US region Field Application Engineers. They modified mmsmedia to use their AV drivers / player instead of Xine or Gstreamer. Based on STLinux, Disko in combination with DirectFB was successfully ported to STi71xx SoC with full hardware acceleration. The testing was done using the Disko demo application. The documentation of STLinux might be a good starting point for anyone interested in testing Disko. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
