    7575== Video / Audio Support ==

    7878==== Software ====
    7979This section is recommended for getting started with example commands for video and audio.
    80 * [wiki:Yocto/gstreamer Ventana GStreamer Wiki ( Pipelines, etc )] - Software commands to use !Video/Audio, streaming, compositing and more.
    81 * [wiki:linux/media Media-ctl] - For kernels 4.13 and newer.
     80
     81The Ventana product family software has been continuously evolving over the years, thus the instructions can be divided into two groups:
     82* [NEW] Ventana with the 4.20 Mainline Kernel (only used with latest Ubuntu prebuilt)
     83 * More cutting edge
     84 * Uses open source video drivers, etnaviv and the Linux Media Controller kernel API
     85 * [wiki:linux/media Media-ctl Wiki] - Software commands to use !Video/Audio, streaming, compositing and more.
     86* [LEGACY] Ventana with the 3.14 Freescale Kernel (used mostly with Yocto)
     87 * Uses binary Vivante drivers
     88 * All functions fully supported
     89 * [wiki:Yocto/gstreamer Yocto Legacy GStreamer Wiki ( Pipelines, etc )] - Software commands to use !Video/Audio, streaming, compositing and more.
     90
     91So, which one to choose?
     92 * New: This is typically recommended to ensure all the latest support. This is newer and thus more is being continuously flushed out. If other items in the project require a newer kernel such as the 4.20, use this method.
     93 * Legacy: This works well but new innovations are not happening here. This can be used if the project doesn't require any new features in a newer kernel, and the 3.14 kernel works fine for application.
