Preface: I have a lot of
.mts video recordings (mainly 576 to 720 lines) I need to cut and transcode to lower bitrate h.264. Nowadays I do this on with an all-in-one tool on my 2009 Core2Duo MacBook, but since I updated to El Captain, it takes many hours on that old machine to transcode one hour of video. That's why I look for a new solution.
Question: I have a wandboard with an i.MX6quad at hand and I know this machine can do real time h.264 encoding upto 1080p@30fps with it's video processing unit, but search engines didn't help me find a transcoding tool that makes use of the hardware acceleration. Will I need to do this myself? If no: Which tool can I use. If yes: What's the right framework to start with?
I don't expect to find an all-in-one video editing solution for this, but it's okay if I can separately transcode and then use another tool for editing without re-encoding.
