There was a nice presentation I saw QC give a while ago on how to recompile the Android system to give you QC libraries you can package with your application that give full support for OpenMAX but I can no longer find that presentation. Unfortunately, Google isn’t providing a complete implementation; so in this case it really falls down.

To do this, you must create the OMX components and an OMX plugin that hooks together your custom codecs with the Stagefright framework. Login or Register to post a comment.

Ketan 6 Nice to know that you have closer association and experienced it first time. It allows companies that develop applications to easily migrate their applications to different platforms customers that support the OpenMAX AL application programming interface API.


Views Read Edit View history. Depending on the implementation, a component could possibly represent a piece of hardware, a software codec, another processor, or a combination thereof. It allows companies to easily integrate new hardware that supports OpenMAX DL without reoptimizing their low level software. Hi Winston, Thanks for the reply. Such is the world we live in. I saw that OpenMAX is not fully implemented and lacks support in terms of documentation, examples etc. Media architecture Application Framework At the application framework level is application code that utilizes android.

I fully agree that there’s an exterme lack of documentation and support for a lot of media playback, especially in oprnmax OpenMAX world.
