KitKat 4.4 :: Breaks HD Video Playback On Majority Of Devices

Dec 12, 2013

Majority of devices will not be able to render 720p or 1080p video in 60 fps using Kitkat 4.4. I believe this has to do with downclocking the boost clock in order to get better battery life.

My Phone: Moto X 4.4 - Both Dalvik and ART are broken

General :: Allshare Video Playback From Other Devices Over WiFi Just Stopped Working

May 28, 2013

Note 10.1 (N8020).

Allshare video playback from other devices over wifi just stopped working. It was totally fine and I have absolutely no idea what happened. It still plays music and shows photos and all the files stored on external devices. The only problem is that it won't play video. It plays video stored locally or on sd card just fine, but when I want to play anything from my note 2 (n7105) or my pc's allshare app, video player shows error message: "Cannot play video. This video cannot be played".

It plays the same files just fine, when I copy them to the device, so I think it might be the case of some transcoding error. It is not a case of network settings - I've checked on 4 different wifi networks and it's the same everywhere. My note 2 works just fine on any wifi and plays all video from tablet or pc. Here is what I tried so far, with no results:

1. Restoring to factory defaults,
2. Wiping cache and dalvik cache,
3. Flashing fresh stock rom,
4. Erasing all allshare apps and video player data

N8020 & N7105 (JB 4.1.2 rooted + stock)

Motorola Droid X :: Video Playback - Framerate - Jerky Playback

Aug 27, 2010

Been struggling with this since receiving my X. Seems like no matter what player I use the playback is jerky. It's very subtle, almost as if the video is dropping a frame or so every second. I've tried the stock player, Astro, Rockplayer, mPlayer, Zimly, Act, and the list goes on and the problem still persists.

I've encoded (using handbrake) with all of the settings suggested on the boards and have tweaked things on my own trying to find the proper setting, but still no luck. The strange and frustrating thing is that the exact same files play just fine on my 1st gen iPod touch (clearly an inferior piece of hardware) and on my wife's incredible. These encodes are of standard def DVDs at average settings (a full movie is about 1.3gb, all h.264 mp4 files.

I was able to improve playback by rebooting the X and then playing the video, but this doesn't seem like an acceptable solution every time I want to watch something. I tend to encode and watch a lot of stuff on my commute to/from work, and I'd really like to replace my touch with the X, but the media capabilities are falling way short. Considering switching to the Inc as I know it's able to play my media properly, but I'd prefer to keep the X for the larger screen size (though the Inc does seem to feel better when using one-handed). I'm on the fence right now, but if the X can't function as expected then it might be going back. Unfortunately I only have until the 1st to return it so I don't think I can hold out and see if 2.2 fixes this issue.

KitKat 4.4 :: Notifications Interrupting Audio Playback?

Apr 3, 2014

On Android 4.3, and playing any type of media such as MP3 or movies, and a text message, e-mail, or any other type of messages is received, unless the phone is actually muted the audio playback is interrupted with a notification. Has that been addressed in KitKat?

I'd like the option to dis-able audio notifications (blinking LED or vibrate is preferred) so the audio experience isn't interrupted.

KitKat 4.4 :: Easy Way To Transfer App Data Between Devices

May 1, 2014

I found an easy way to transfer app data from one android device to another. Recently switched to galaxy s4 from iPhone 5 and wanted to transfer my app data from my nook tablet that is rooted. I installed es file explorer and helium (carbon) backup on both. Then I backed up the apps i wanted using carbon on my nook. Opened es file explorer and went to carbon folder and selected apps I wanted to transfer, clicked send to and it transfered the files to my s4. Then I put the files into the carbon folder on my s4. Then restored them using carbon. Now I have my Minecraft data on my s4!

Android :: Cannot Playback Video From Internal Storage - Data-data-com.myapp-some-folders-video.mp4

Aug 4, 2010

I have an application with a lot of media data (images and videos) that were previously stored on the sdcard. With that, images and videos are displayed fine in my app.

Now, in order to secure the content more, I wanted to move the content to the internal storage / data dir of the app, which I did. I copied all media with a routine within my app to the data folder (/data/data/com.myapp/some/folders/video.mp4) and adjusted the path in my app so that it would look for the media in the internal storage data directory and not the sdcard anymore.

Everything works fine, images are being displayed (decoded) properly, but videos don't play. They files do exist though - I do not get a FileNotFound exception. But an IOException: java.io.IOException: Prepare failed.: status=0xFFFFFFFC

Why is that? Everything is handled within my one app and the videos have been copied with the same routine as the images, thus having the same permission settings. Looking at the stack trace, it all runs in process id 18060).

Why I cannot playback the video from internal storage? Or how can I?

I was going through the developer menu on my Nexus Devices (Android 4.4.2) and just noticed a menu called "Process Stats". Is that new or have I missed it up to now? it shows programs that have been using background processes and gives a really good understanding of what's killing the phone, though I can't read it.

HTC Desire :: Video Playback

Jul 14, 2010

I was just wondering how people play their video files as I cannot find a media player on the Desire. I am currently using a file manager app and then selecting the file, but I would have thought the phone had some kind of standard app installed that would let me browse and play my content.

HTC Incredible :: Video Playback

May 6, 2010

I have some videos that I have encoded for use on my iPod. I'd love to get them working on the DI; however, only the audio works when they videos are going. Tried it using the stock video player and the Act 1 player. I converted them using Handbrake as mp4 videos. I have been poking around with different settings for about an hour now and nothing has worked.

Motorola Droid X :: Video Playback Of .avi And .wmv

Jul 19, 2010

Question about video playback. Do you have to convert everything to .3GP ? I drop some movies onto the SD card and play them just fine. Then went back to play them it was REALLY choppy. Not exactly sure what is causing this. I would rather not covert everything to a different codec.

Android :: Gapless Video Playback

Oct 5, 2010

I'm trying to build a live streaming player by downloading video segments (which are generated in real-time) and then playing them back in sequence. While I can get the segments to play, I need to get it so that there isn't a pause between playback of successive segments. I've tried using both MediaPlayer (with an appropriate SurfaceView) and VideoView, but there's always a small gap between segments.

If I try to load a new video into a MediaPlayer when the first segment finishes playing, it seems to take half a second or so before the next segment is loaded and starts playing. I have also tried having multiple SurfaceViews within a single ContentView (with only the active one being visible), but it seems like you can't prepare a video until the associated SurfaceView is visible. I also tried having multiple ContentViews that I switch between, but again, this has similar issues.

Any ideas or suggestions? Is it possible to somehow get the next segment to begin decoding as soon as the first one is decoded (which could be before it finishes playing)? Am I going to need to build a custom video player in order to do this?

Media :: Video Playback On Android

Aug 28, 2009

I never used an android phone before and i'm thinking to get myself a samung galaxy, but before that I'd like to know a couple of things concerning video playback on android. First of all, is there any way to play DIVX and XVID on an android phone WITHOUT converting? Do you need some particular paid application from the market or you can do it with the default player? How much this application would cost?

Another question: lot of my movies are quite big in resolution (you know the normal size that you use for pc's). Is there any need of resizing the movie to let it play on an android phone? I used to have a samsung omnia (rip); winmo sucked badly but it can play any video at almost any resolution very smoothly with free players also.

Android :: Noise During Video Playback

Aug 19, 2010

I have noticed that during playback of video I take with my Motorola droid, I hear a sort of a pop every now and then. The first time I heard it, I thought it was something going on around me when taking the video, but it's not, it appears that the sound is coming from the droid, though I do not hear the pop when recording. There is no rhyme or reason to it. Sometimes you don't hear it at all, sometimes it's every 30 seconds, and a lot of times, I hear the pop right at the end of the video, but sometimes it happens right in the middle.

I can do this on mu computer with Quicktime, by skipping through the video frame for frame. I would like to do the same on my phone, or at least just watch in slow-motion. Can anyone tell me if there's an app for this?

HTC EVO 4G : Video Playback Features Of Phone?

May 14, 2010

Does anyone know anything about the video playback features of the EVO 4G? I'm coming from the iPhone where playback was limited to mp4 (encoded with h.264 or ffmpeg).

Either way, this thing can supposedly handle 720p. Is a 720p mkv going to be possible on this thing or am I going to have to encode video for this and buy some special player?

That's one thing about the iPhone i'm sure I'm going to miss -- the core functions like music and video playing are built into the OS and work rock solid. With android, are there going to be a bunch of odd video players to download and try?
