The case for a virtual Rust stateless codec driver

This talk will present the case for a Rust stateless codec driver in V4L2. It will highlight the basics of stateless decoding in the media subsystem and walk the audience through the current status of the Rust bindings submitted by the author as it takes stock of the missing pieces to make a functional driver. It will then discuss how this project relates with the ongoing efforts to bring Rust to the rest of the multimedia stack on Linux.
