Even if the capture buffers are lower, driver should consider
reallocation of capture
buffers with required higher count. Without this, it may happen that for
a given video
frame, the decoded output will not be generated. The fact that the DPB
buffer count is
same as capture buffers, will be lower than required. Hence the frame
which needs YUV
reference beyond the DPB count, will get stuck as it cannot be decoded
due to unavailability
of sufficient DPB buffers.
Say for ex. 10 DPB and capture buffers are allocated. For a given
bitstream, firmware requested
the count to be 15. Frame 1 to 10 gets decoded and stored in DPB as
references for future frame
decoding. Now when the 11th frame is queued to firmware, it can be
decode but cannot be stored
as reference to decode future (12th) frame. Hence 11 frame will get
stuck and will not be given
back to host driver.
