What are the advantages of VPlayer’s hardware decoder?
  • Hardware acceleration is the use of Android hardware to perform the playback function faster than is possible in soft running on the general-purpose CPU. Examples of hardware acceleration include blitting acceleration functionality in graphics processing units(GPUs) and instructions for complex operations in CPUs.
  • Normally, processors are sequential, and instructions are executed one by one. Various techniques are used to improve performance; hardware acceleration is one of them. The main difference between hardware and software is concurrency, allowing hardware to be much faster than software. Hardware accelerators are designed for computationally intensive software code. Depending upon granularity, hardware acceleration can vary from a small functional unit to a large functional block (like motion estimation in MPEG-2).
