User Comments

no neon on ARM systems

Currently the default vpxenc install on ARMv7 will use generic-gnu and not the armv7-linux-gcc which offers x2 more fps.

Post by gajdipajti on 25 September 2013, 04.44.

input file is unsupported

The test is attempting to encode a .mov file but that is not valid input for vpxenc. It is treating it as raw yuv input. Try watching the output to verify this.

vpxenc needs a yuv or y4m file as input.
