I have a zynq board with HDMI and MicroSD card on it. In my project, I should read an image (and later a video) file from the MicroSD and show it through the HDMI display.
Is there any recommended architecture for it?
Should I use PS to read the file and send it to the HDMI IP in PL or I should use PL to read the files from MicroSD?
Any recommended IP?

If BRAMs are insufficient then the only way out is to use external DDR* memory as the frame buffer memory.

See this XAPP or use the latest version of it for an idea!

Using software that runs on the Zynq (PS) to read the image from SD card will be easier that implementing the same functionality at the PL. Once the image is read you can send it to the related IP at PL and send it out via HDMI .

The read file will be huge (few MegaByte), where can I save it? we have limited BRAM on PL side. How can I demonstrate it on HDMI?
