It's likely what the driver do is slightly off what the spec say. All
user space code so far seems to only drain at EOS. As the next buffer
is a new stream, it make sense to completely reset the encoder. We'd
need to review that, but using CMD_START should work if you queue a
Note that for many a flush is the action of getting rid of the pending
images and achieve by using STREAMOFF. While the effect of CMD_STOP is
to signal the decoder that no more encoded image will be queued, hence
remaining images should be delivered to userspace. They will
differentiate as a flush operation vs as drain operation. This is no
rocket science of course.
