Android 4 offers new OpenMAX AL API support for low-level streaming multimedia


Google's recently announced Android 4.0 platform, and related Ice Cream Sandwich SDK, include many new media capabilities. One very nice addition is the introduction for low-level streaming multimedia. To support this low-level streaming, the platform introduces a new native API based on the Khronos OpenMAX AL 1.0.1 API. This API is implemented on the same underlying services as the platform’s existing OpenSL ES API, so developers can make use of both APIs together if needed. Tools support for low-level streaming multimedia will be available in an upcoming release of the Android NDK. Learn more about OpenMAX AL on the Khronos Group website.

Ice Cream Sandwich SDK for Android

Hot on the heals of Android 4.0, Google released Ice Cream SDK. Bringing a slew of changes and improvements, including TextureView object. Developers can directly integrate OpenGL ES textures as rendering targets in a UI hierarchy, making it easy to embed camera preview, decoded video and OpenGL game scenes.TextureView can be viewed as a more powerful version of the existing SurfaceView object, since it offers the same benefits of access to a GL rendering surface, with the added advantage of having that surface participate fully in the normal view hierarchy. The camera also sees some improvements with the addition of high-performance transformation filters allowing developers to apply rich effects to any image passed as an OpenGL ES 2.0 texture.
