Modified libstagefright to use legacy Qualcomm OMX IL libs on ICS for MSM7x27 SoCs
Hi, low-end devices users! I have good news for you
As you know, Qualcomm has ended support for their SoCs, based on ARMv6 core, and doesn't release OpenMax IL libraries for Android 4.0+. Someone was crying on Qualcomm's forum, someone try to understand, how to extend GB proprietaries to support new Google OMX extensions, but nobody try to modify libstagefright, and disable using new unimplemended functions...
I spent about a few weeks, learning stagefright architecture, and differents between GB and ICS OMX layers...and now I ready to show it to you
I have only ZTE Blade, and can make ROM only for it. You can download it here
. In addition to worked hardware-accelerated video playback, and camcorder, it builded with Linaro GCC 4.7.1, and has a little UI speedup(if it not a placebo
). ROM based on KonstaT device tree, thanks him for it.
Oh, my Dropbox temporary blocked to public links. I upload ROM to letitbit
Modified framework's sources can be found on my github
. Besides it, you need to add one global define to your device's BoardConfig.mk - COMMON_GLOBAL_CFLAGS += -DQCOM_LEGACY_OMX
: Patch already ported by XDA users! Read CM10 port thread
: Please, if you want my help with integration problem, attach logcat at the time, when you try to use vide playback/camcorder. I can't help without any information.
post can be helpful. Thanks to cougarcougar
playing videos in Browser, and non-fullscreen mode.
: Last important error on ICS is color banding on gradients in some videos. I think its not OMX work, that need something improvements in Surface rendering...
: You can use updated OMX from attachment, and my last changes in libstagefright to enable HW playback of AVI, DivX, WMA and RealMedia formats!
Big thanks to miroslav_mm
for this research!
For RealMedia some kernel improvements needed. Look here
If you get a problems with new libs, you can try to still use your device oem libs. For get extended extractor working you need only add that:
libdivxdrmdecrypt.so, libmmosal.so, libmmparser.so and libmmparser_divxdrmlib.so
Devices based on MSM7x27 chips has two different versions of OMX libs.
"(for froyo?) has an unknown padding between color components parts of returning buffer. I have fixed that for most videos, but some strange resolutions are still gets broken colors with green line on top.
" version are present in Samsung/LG devices, who has official Gingerbread ROMs. It returns correct buffer in dfferent color format(YV12, instead of NV21), but it laggy on VGA+ videos. Now don't know why. May be it convert resulting buffer to YV12 on CPU... I will try to understand it later.
I think you can use "old
" libs from ZTE Blade on any device, because "new" libs work on ZTE Blade too.
PS: If you want to thanks/support my work - you know where you can find button for it.
