The functional scope of the OpenMAX DL interface spans several domains including signal processing and image processingaudio codingimage codingand video coding. It appears that MediaCodec will be way to go – thanks again.

Media applications interact with the Android native multimedia framework according to the following architecture. It is an application-level, C-languagemultimedia API designed for resource-constrained devices. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.

Understanding Android Stagefright Internals (II) – OpenMAX IL and Stagefright overview

What’s sad is the different levels of support even amongst different NDK versions has created a situation where it’s not easy to create sample code. Content and code samples on this page are subject to the licenses described in the Content License.

There was a nice presentation I saw QC give a while ago on how to recompile the Android system to give you Androidd libraries you can package with your application that give full support for OpenMAX but I can no longer find that presentation. A platform can be compliant to one or both of these profiles by providing all features included in a profile. This plugin links Stagefright with your custom codec components, which must be implemented according to the OpenMAX IL component standard. Does any approach increases overhead for syncing video and audio?


Login or Register to post a comment. Ketan 6 You must provide an OpenMAX plugin in the form of a shared library named libstagefrighthw.

In general, MediaCodec is the one that would be recommended. It allows companies to easily integrate new hardware that aneroid OpenMAX Anndroid without reoptimizing their low level software.

It does not anndroid any container format at all on its own, but you as a caller are supposed to take opejmax of that.

Stagefright updates can occur through the Android monthly security update process and as part of an Android OS release.

If you use MediaCodec, you would need to handle sync of audio and video during playback.

Like I said, there really isn’t one standard here yet. They operate on slightly different levels of abstraction, and for most cases, MediaCodec is less work. OpenMAX provides three layers of interfaces: It does not support other container formats.

Thus, keep your timing in line relatively easy and it will work. To set a hardware path to encode and decode media, you must implement a hardware-based androi as an OpenMax IL Integration Layer component. The advantages of using OpenMAX are actually pretty phenominal. In most cases it will provide best decoder available on the platform. Syncing worked out fine till I can get decode and play done within budget. Hi Ketan, I fully agree that there’s an exterme lack of poenmax and support for a lot of media playback, especially in the OpenMAX world.

Its status as an open cross-platform API enables developers to port the same source across multiple devices with minimal effort. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
