Hello,<br><br>I'm new in the mailing list and in the DVB project, so my questions can seem simples but I'll be glad if you can help...<br><br>I'm in an internship and I have to write a driver for a chip containing the Philips TDA10046 chipset, the other parts of the chip are proprietary to the company.
<br><br>A previous trainee wrote the part about the frontend and the demux and I have to write the audio and video decoder part. I work with the linux DVB API v3 (since the chip is using a 2.6.15 kernel). I read a lot the code in the dvb-core directory and the code of the previous trainee and I think I've understand how it works (at least the basic principles). And now I want to start writing the video decoder part but I don't find any structure for the video decoder in the dvb-core I can reuse.
<br><br>I tried to search for the drivers for the full-featured DVB card but I didn't find a structure here neither (I have to admit that I didn't understand well how it works). <br><br>So I'm seeking help in all kind of types (references that might be useful, some sites or some source code I should look...) about the writing of this part of the driver. But I want to stay in the DVB API and not going to v4l drivers or somethings... I just want to have the device /dev/dvb/adapter0/video0 work properly.
<br><br>And last question, will a software like mplayer be able to play dvb streams just with the dvb drivers or does it need the /dev/video and the v4l drivers ?<br clear="all"><br>Don't hesitate to ask more precisions...
<br><br>Thank you in advance!!!<br><br>-- <br>Thomas
