I see, with Philipp's answer it explains why it works. Note that
GStreamer sets the display size on the OUTPUT format (in fact we pass
as much information as we have, because a) it's generic code and b) it
will be needed someday when we enable pre-allocation (REQBUFS before
SPS/PPS is passed, to avoid the setup delay introduce by allocation,
mostly seen with CMA base decoder). In any case, the driver reported
display size should always be ignored in GStreamer, the only
information we look at is the G_SELECTION for the case the x/y or the
cropping rectangle is non-zero.

Note this can only work if the capture queue is not affected by the
coded size, or if the round-up made by the driver is bigger or equal to
that coded size. I believe CODA falls into the first category, since
the decoding happens in a separate set of buffers and are then de-tiled
into the capture buffers (if understood correctly).

I would say, best is just to test the updated Venus driver, which is in
my queue.

Just to make sure, if I try and register that event on CODA with the
current driver, it will simply fail immediately right ? I don't need
any other magic to detect that this isn't supported ?
