Aren't you supposed to get the Coprocessor Datasheet as part of the
agreement with the chip vendor? There is no point of making it

I can't understand what makes you think that we may have the datasheet
of the cocpu? Either it is freely available or somebody got it under
NDA that forbids sharing.

It may be rude from my side, but your mail just says "I'm clueless".
This is not the correct mail list for getting a clue.

You most probably have no idea who we are and what are we doing. I bet
you send this mail 15 minutes after you found this project in google.
Oh, btw, we don't have h264 encoder yet, x264 does the encoding.
