Support Thread for libstagefright
#1
WARNING:

1. These builds are not for AmLogic nor Allwinner SoC's, which do not support libstagefright
2. They require Android 4.0 (aka Ice Cream Sandwich)


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 support on libstagefright test builds of XBMC.

Download

Use the alphas located at http://mirrors.xbmc.org/snapshots/android/ or nigthlies.
Note that if MediaCodec is enabled, libstagefright won't be used (besides on ICS)

[UPDATE 29/10/2013]
Cleaned up the OP. Alphas or nightlies are to be used.

Debug Instructions

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

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

3. 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.

4. 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.

* WARNING: Before posting on the development thread ensure you've read the 1st post, anyone posting who don't meet the criteria laid out in the 1st post may have their posts deleted*

You probably missed the part where we ask to share the debug log...

This build is working great with both the 720 & 1080p mkvs I tested it with (brave and american reunion) on my Minix Neo x5. I did get a random crash but im not sure if it is related to my device or xbmc only more testing will tell. But there is no stuttering, no glitches, etc. The Neo x5 is on android 4.1.1 and uses the rk3066 / Mali 400-MP4 + 1GB of ram. One thing ive seen that is still of minor annyoance, is that you cannot hide your status bar once youve enetered xbmc it must be done before otherwise it throws off the whole orientationof the sreen and buttons dont match up where they are supposed too

Great work guys!

I tried this out earlier and XBMC crashes when opening a 720p MKV that I have - Log here; http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=28116

I also tried it with LiveTV (mediaportal addon, opening TS files from windows share) it works fine with SD, but 720 HD channels don't crash XBMC but give ~10 FPS (could be correct.. not sure how capable this tablet is!) - Log here; http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=28118

Device is an Archos 80 Cobolt (Rockchip 1.6 Dual Core, Mali 400 GPU, 1GB Ram) running ICS (stock Archos version).

I'll continue testing, and will try it with the videos linked above so that if it crashes at least you guys can try and reproduce Smile

Hi there,

I just tested the libstagefright build on my device:

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
Modelnumber: GT-P5110
Android Version: 4.1.1
Tablet Kernel Version: 3.0.31-523998

I'm trying to help here, as there of yet there has been no build of XBMC which will make it playback videos properly, so hey i'll give this libstagefright a shot.

Here are my results:

Screenshot: http://picpaste.com/samsung_galaxy_tab2_...Z1kdj.jpeg

1: Starting up the XBMC goes great.
2: Starting playback of a video called: "Moments_of_Everyday_Life.mp4" which is a 720p video.
3: For the first time on this Samsung Tablet, the playback is smooth - however there is a lot of jittering around the edge (see screenshot), and it seems like the rendering area doesn’t fit the screen (too small).
4: Well it looks weird during playback, and when the playback ends XBMC crashes.

XBMC.log for the above can be found here: http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=28113


A second attempt was made with the following results:

1: Starting up the XBMC goes great.
2: Starting playback of a video called: "Moments_of_Everyday_Life.mp4" which is a 720p video.
3: Same results with the image edge jittering green/gray noise (see screenshot).
4: This time however i stopped the playback manually before it reached the end, and everything was OK - no crashing Smile

XBMC.log for the second attempt can be found here: http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=28115

I just want to take this opportunity to let you and the other developers of XBMC know that you guys are doing a fantastic job, and i really encurage you to keep developing such a great multimedia tool.
It rocks, it always has, and the day i read that XBMC was being ported completely to Android, i knew that the future of Media Centers would be secured as well.

Mega props from me guys, and I hope with my help - we can get XBMC running smooth on more Android devices.

Best wishes,

Unfortunately, just the xbmc log doesn't show anything regarding crashes. If you know how to get a logcat log, please attach it.

libstagefright wasn't used for this PVR run. Not too sure why...

Hi Koying,

The screenshot link is fixed i hope Smile
Have a nice evening.

Thanks for looking into the logs Koying.

I've attached a logcat that I captured while trying to play the same video here; http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=28135

Hopefully this one has something that will be of use Smile

Anything I can get for you to help figure out why it libstagefright wasn't used for the PVR playback? (or is this to be expected at this stage of development)

Hello.
I want to thank you for your interest on HW decoding enhancements.

I have 2 devices to test always through SMB.
I always use 1080p mkv test files.

The first is my Galaxy S3:

- It run them with no crash but a bit laggy ! 23-25 fps
- Also some bad pixel/parts on some videos
- CPU XBMC 50%

Still need improvement but i liked it...

Next post for other my device.

Do you need the log also if non crash ?

Nexus 10 (have a 4 as well if someone doesn't get there first).

I want to say tearing but it's not the usual tearing.
http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=28140

Code:
ffmpeg[7A5B42A0]: [h264] Missing reference picture
Might be the cause? I know the chip is new so maybe ffmpeg doesn't even support it yet.

Also seem to crash/exit on video play finish but I'll get you a logcat for that one.

Mizaki - I have the same issue with the Nexus 10, BUT I also tested one of Koying's early builds about 4 weeks ago and 1080p ran butterly smooth there without any glitches (tested up to a 8GB 1080p with DTS which was the max bitrate for my wifi) - so it's not ffmpeg but some change since then.
#14
Ah, okay then Smile If you are already testing it on the 10, I'll move onto the Nexus 4.
