1 GSoC proposal for 2008

This is a discussion about a proposal for XBMC's Google Summer of Code 2008

1.1 Current Draft

1.1.1 Name

Jing GAO (IRC & XBMC.org username: ?)

1.1.2 E-Mail

[email protected]

1.1.3 Project Title

Hardware Accelerated Video Decoding of H.264 encoded video.

1.1.4 Project Goals

Off-loading some decoding processing parts to a OpenGL 2.0 GPU for assisted decoding.

1.1.5 Project Benefits

Much experiment of programming and some experiment of GPGPU.

1.1.6 Personal Statement

Msc student in a French engineering school, I am major in computer science and minor in applied mathematics and the scientific algorithmic. I have programmed for various subjects with C++, STL and Boost from the application of simulation network with QT and OpenGL to the application of the linear programming with GNU GLPK and some heuristics method. With many experiments of the programming and technical skill on Linux and Windows, I believe my background will help me to your project.
