Just out of curiosity, what does angstrom mplayer using pxa driver do when
it is provided with inconvinient video as input (let's say 352x288 for
example)? Does it handle scaling with libswscale? Does is perform software
scaling for planar YV12 -> planar YV12? Or planar YV12 -> packed YUY2?
I'm asking because if the situation with scaling is not so perfect, using
a scaler that is used in Nokia 770/N800 package of mplayer could probably
help. As I don't have PXA hardware, I can't be very useful unless provided
with a detailed technical information about how the scaling is performed on
PXA devices in mplayer, and where optimized code can be plugged in.
