Hardware-accelerated encoders in S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 1 devices do not support all data unit types for encoded video data (only the EDuCodedPicture output type is supported). There are different data unit types defined for TVideoDataUnitType enumeration.

  • EDuCodedPicture
    Each data unit is a single coded picture.
  • EDuVideoSegment
    Each data unit is a coded video segment - a part of the coded video data that forms an independently decodable part of a coded video frame.
  • EDuSeveralSegments
    Each data unit contains an integer number of video segments consecutive in decoding order, possibly more than one.
  • EDuArbitraryStreamSection
    Each data unit contains a piece of raw video bitstream, not necessarily aligned at any headers.


No solution available.
