video decoder drivers for linux

Link to this post 21 Jul 09

designing around a COMExpress card...will be using an ATOM based processor and runing linux.

we built a card that used an NXP Semi part # SAA7130 video decoder..we were running XPe with this part...(it is a video decoder to PCI part)...

is there a decoder that I can use (hardware) that has linux driver support (Video decoder to PCI or PCIe)...?...
was looking at Conexant parts CX23887, etc...

any help appreciated as i am rather new to Linux
email me at

You might try posting your question on the web site. There are a lot more people following and moderating that forum these days who might be able to answer your question. Also, please be more explicit as to what you are trying to do, and what you mean by "video decoder". There is quite a bit of scope for confusion in that term.

I agree with Rubberman.
Also Look at Video4Linux project:

The linux kernel supports the cx23885 chip, so you should probably be looking at video4linux. I have of course no way to guarantee that your concrete card will work, even if the chip is supported.
