This page lists open source projects related to the Media subsystem that are in need of volunteers.

Each project has a short description and an indication of the difficulty and guesstimated time in days (assume around 7-8 hours per day). Projects marked 'Easy' are suitable for those with little experience with C and kernel development. Projects marked 'Medium' require C experience and at least some knowledge about kernel driver development. Projects marked 'Hard' require a solid amount of kernel development experience and ideally at least some knowledge about media subsystem development.

If you are interested in one of these projects, then please contact the linux-media mailinglist.

  • V4L2: VIMC: Add HDMI emulation support. The vimc (Virtual Media Controller) driver supports sensors, but it does not have a sub-device driver for HDMI receivers. It would be nice to have this for prototyping purposes. Difficulty: medium. Time: 10 days.
  • V4L2: VIMC: Add S-Video emulation support. The vimc (Virtual Media Controller) driver supports sensors, but it does not have a sub-device driver for S-Video receivers. It would be nice to have this for prototyping purposes. Difficulty: medium. Time: 10 days.
  • V4L2: VIMC: Add frame rate control. The vimc (Virtual Media Controller) driver support different frame resolutions, but it does not support different frame rates. Add support for this. Difficulty: Easy/Medium. Time: 5 days.
  • V4L2: VIMC: Add support for cropping/composing. The vimc (Virtual Media Controller) driver does not have any support for the cropping and composing API (aka selection API). Add support for this. Difficulty: Medium. Time: 10-15 days.
  • V4L2 Documentation: the Extended Controls documentation should be split up into sub-sections, one for each class of controls. Difficulty: Easy. Time: 1 day.
  • V4L2 Documentation: re-organize the Selection API documentation. It's messy and the information is spread over too many pages. Difficulty: Easy/Medium. Time: 2-4 days.
