CorePlayer on Android: playing H.264 Video

February 23rd, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

CorePlayer for Android is currently in development; today company posted this screenshot showing playback of H.264 video. You can follow their progress on twitter and this forum thread.

Development was delayed due to lack of functions in old versions of Android NDK, and CoreCodec explained why they need it:

In the end we want CorePlayer to be 100% NDK/SDK compliant for two reasons:

  • Consumer downloads that work against any device (Android Store) and for any mobile provider
  • OEM expandability. In matching our consumer goal this will easily allow third parties to use CorePlayer as a compliant drop in solution without the need to one off a separate SDK.

Why we need this player on Android? Just see formats it supports:

Audio Formats:
MP3, MP2, AAC, MKA, WMA, Midi*, WAV, OGG, Speex, WAVPACK, TTA, FLAC, MPC, AMR, ADPCM, ALaw, MuLaw, G.729, GSM

Video Formats:
H.264 (AVC), AVCHD, MKV, MPEG-1, MPEG-4 part 2 (ASP), DivX, XviD, WMV*, Theora*, Dirac*, MJPEG, MSVIDEO1

Container Formats:
Flash/FLV, Matroska, ASF, ASX, AVI, PS, M2TS, TS, 3GPP, MOV, MPEG-4, OGM, NSV*

Streaming Formats:
HTTP, UDP, UDP Multicast, UDP Unicast, RDP, RTP. RTSP, RTCP (keep alive), ASX, ASF, Multicast, HTTP Tunneling

Update: This player still not released after two years of development. You can use MX Video Player instead.

    Coreplayer worked fantastically on my HTC windows mobile, i cant wait for it to work on my android mobile HTC Hero because everybody is beating on rock player but the audio and video are not syncronized with each other. So for me Coreplayer is the BEST in the world.Please come soon.Everybody is waiting.

    CoreCodec: CorePlayer is available now for Android, but its only for OEM licensing. We do not offer a consumer version at this time.

    Т.е. только для производителей железа.
