La folle histoire de VLC (2)

22 June 2021

After spending a lot of time on ARM64 during 0.5.0 and 0.7.0, we’re spending some times for the people who are stuck with older phones, still running on 32-bit platforms.

With these new optimizations, we’re 28% faster than before when decoding the Chimera sample on a Snapdragon 835.

The result is that we’re only 20%-25% slower in 32bit compared to 64bit, which is quite a feast.

Compared to gav1, we’re now 2x-2.4x faster, in 32bit mode.
