Odroid hardware acceleration

I just recently got an ODROID-XU board and I implemented a video player using the OpenCV API. I noticed that the video is only decoded using the software rather than hardware. I was wondering if it is possible to get hardware acceleration to work with OpenCV. The GPU for the board is PowerVR SGX544MP3. Any help is appreciated.

OpenCV uses popular video decoding/encoding libraries for video i/o support. If you use Linux it can be FFMPEG, GStreamer, Xine, etc. If you want to use hardware acceleration you need hardware accelerated version of video library. For example, if you have somw plug-in for GStreamer, install it and build OpenCV with GStreamer support.

Currently, there isn't any support GPU in ODROID-XU so your ODROID-XU use software support. I'm speaking if you has installed OpenCV in Ubuntu. I am not sure but I believe that there is a support in ODROID-XU for Android.
