There is some public documentation for the VideoCore IV (RPI0-3)
and almost none for the VideoCore VI (RPI4).

There are now open-source DRM drivers for both (vc4, v3d), partially
based on the public documentation, reverse engineering and probably
some NDA information.

Using these, other media players can utilize the RPI GPUs. On Linux.
