Abstract

Android is a widely used operating system in mobile devices, due to that it is free, open source and easy-to-use. However, the multimedia processing ability of current android is quite limited, as the original android multimedia engine OpenCore cannot deal with lots of commonly used video (audio) formats. Recently, several approaches are proposed to enhance the multimedia processing ability and Gstreamer based method is supposed to own the best performance. However, the multimedia processing ability of current extension multimedia frameworks are still not good enough, which weakens the potential application prospect. In this paper, we provide another android multimedia framework based on Gstreamer. Extensive experiments show that our Gstreamer based framework can greatly improve the multimedia processing ability in terms of efficiency, compatibility, feasibility and universality.
