libstagefright - Experimental hardware video decoding builds
#1
* WARNING: Not for AmLogic nor Allwinner SoC's, which do not support libstagefright *

libstagefright is hopefully the answer that many of you have been waiting for: universal support for hardware video decoding in XBMC.

This thread is for libstagefright test builds of XBMC to help the XBMC developers, since they only have so many different Android devices to test on.

If you require support on libstagefright builds then please use the Support Thread @ http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=168268

ONLY POST IN THIS THREAD IF YOU ARE WILLING TO BE A TESTER AND GIVE PROPER FEEDBACK (debug logs, etc).

The sources of the builds are XBMC master plus this Pull Request: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/2504
They require Android 4.0 (aka Ice Cream Sandwich).

Instructions:
1. Download this build: http://mirrors.xbmc.org/test-builds/andr...bi-v7a.apk

2. Make sure that debugging is turned on in XBMC under Settings -> System -> Debugging -> Enable debug logging.

3. Restart XBMC so that the debug log (wiki) has start up information

4. Do not post your debug log (wiki) directly to the thread post. Instead, use add-on:XBMC Log Uploader (wiki) or manually paste the log to http://xbmclogs.com . Be careful not to expose any sensitive network passwords in your log. See debug log (wiki) for how to hide those passwords, if you use them.

5. Reply to this thread with the url of your debug log. Tell us the make/model of your Android device, what version of Android it is running, and the steps necessary to reproduce the issue. Describe the issue, such as video artifacts, blurring, stuttering, etc.

Remember: we are only testing video playback in this thread.

6. (optional) If you are looking for videos to test with, or need videos that help demonstrate your issue, look here: http://www.auby.no/files/video_tests/

7. If everything is working fine then we want to know that too. Tell us the make/model of your Android device, what version of Android it's running, what video you tested with, etc.

No just "Me too" posts! Always post the information requested here (debug logs, etc) even if someone else has reported the same or similar issue.
