Will GStreamer be as cpu/memory efficient as a pure OMX solution ? No, I seriously doubt we'll break down all the fundamental notions in GStreamer to make it use 0 cpu when running some processing.
I blame late night mails...
I meant "Will GStreamer be capable of zero-cpu usage like OMX is capable in some situation". The answer still stands.
But regarding memory usage, GStreamer can do zero-memcpy provided the underlying layers have a mechanism it can use.
