I have /lib/firmware/vpu/vpu_fw_imxq6.bin, size 253968, the last 6 digits of md5sum is e8debf.

I tried these:
The webm examples play nicely, even scaled to full screen.
It's the same "Elephants Dream" as one of the examples in (1) but at 720p.
It pays nicely in the browser control but it's a slideshow as full screen.
On the other hand, gstreamer 0.10 with gst-fsl-plugin and its gst-fsl-plugin-gplay
subpackage, gplay plays a 720p and a 1080p H.264 test file very well without tearing.
