CrystalHD decoder support v7

The Broadcom CrystalHD decoder chips provide hardware video
decoding for a number of video formats. It does so using a
memory:memory interface where a compressed bitstream is fed
in and decompressed pictures are copied out. As such, it works
independent of any graphics hardware in the system.

  • Support for Linux (using current drivers/library from git.wilsonet.com)
  • Support for 70015 hardware
  • Formats: MPEG2, MPEG4 Part 2, H.264, VC1 and DivX 3.11 (untested)
  • Progressive content
  • Non-H.264 Interlaced content
  • H.264 MBAFF content
Features missing in this initial version:
  • Support for OSX (might work - untested)
  • Support for Windows
  • Support for 70012 hardware
