Hi i am looking to make a 4k mpeg4 media player using an arm micro processor. Is it possible to code and simulate in F7. And is there any development board for this?

4K video is a struggle for even the top end games consoles thanks to the sheer quantity of pixels. The only thing that might come close that I can suggest is a Raspberry pi which can output video in 1080p HD. However this is not a Flowcode target.

I've seen a lot of projects use something like a raspberry pi for the video output linked to an Arduino or PIC for the additional embedded functionality.

Apparently the Tinker board is like a raspberry pi but capable of 4K video, and there may be others available. However buyer beware if a games console is struggling with 4K then a cheap card sized computer is almost certainly also going to have problems maintaining 60Hz refresh on all those pixels. So it boils down to what you want to show on your 4K output. ... k_support/
