Adding Audio Codecs to AOSP
Okay, first, this may not belong here. I read the sticky:
This area is currently experimental and was set up by the XDA Administrators for development discussion.
I figure it has to do with development, but I'm prepared to get punted if I'm wrong.
I know very basic Linux commands. I say this because I support VMware for a living, but it's fairly locked down and I only use the command line when installing drivers or troubleshooting.
How hard would it be to add an audio codec to an AOSP ROM. I already have the codec pulled out of another, non-AOSP ROM. Pretty sure I have the files necessary. But I'm not sure about how to add it to an AOSP ROM. From my googling, it sounds like it's not as simple as just copying the codec over. I actually have to edit other system files to point to the codec.
Would all this require re-compiling a ROM? How serious is this going to be? I don't know how to build my own ROM's. So I'd have to learn. But I'm really short on personal time and if this is going to be a HUGE deal, I'd rather just forget about it.
What do you guys think?
