Since the Raspberry Pi platform was introduced it dramatically changed the picture of the embedded (affordable) micro-computer market.
WebKit is a popular Web rendering engine developed by a wide community of Open-Source developers including major actors such as Apple, Samsung, Intel and Adobe.
The purpose of this talk is to explain how we managed to leverage the hardware components of the Raspberry Pi to deliver acceptable video rendering performance of a QtWebKit(2) browser using the GStreamer 1.2.x APIs. We will explain how we integrated zero-copy rendering in the multi-process WebKit2 architecture. Other advanced use-cases such as video/canvas, video/webgl and getUserMedia will also be presented.
