MediaCodecInfo.CodecCapabilities

public static final class MediaCodecInfo.CodecCapabilities
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.media.MediaCodecInfo.CodecCapabilities


Encapsulates the capabilities of a given codec component. For example, what profile/level combinations it supports and what colorspaces it is capable of providing the decoded data in, as well as some codec-type specific capability flags.

You can get an instance for a given MediaCodecInfo object with getCapabilitiesForType(), passing a MIME type.

Fields

colorFormats

added in API level 16
public int[] colorFormats

Defined in the OpenMAX IL specs, color format values are drawn from OMX_COLOR_FORMATTYPE.

profileLevels

added in API level 16
public CodecProfileLevel[] profileLevels

Public constructors

MediaCodecInfo.CodecCapabilities

added in API level 16
public MediaCodecInfo.CodecCapabilities ()

Public methods

createFromProfileLevel

added in API level 21
public static MediaCodecInfo.CodecCapabilities createFromProfileLevel (String mime, 
                int profile, 
                int level)

Retrieve the codec capabilities for a certain mime type, profile and level. If the type, or profile-level combination is not understood by the framework, it returns null.

In Build.VERSION_CODES.M, calling this method without calling any method of the MediaCodecList class beforehand results in a NullPointerException.

Parameters
mime String

profile int

level int

Returns
MediaCodecInfo.CodecCapabilities

getAudioCapabilities

added in API level 21
public MediaCodecInfo.AudioCapabilities getAudioCapabilities ()

Returns the audio capabilities or null if this is not an audio codec.

Returns
MediaCodecInfo.AudioCapabilities

getDefaultFormat

added in API level 21
public MediaFormat getDefaultFormat ()

Returns a MediaFormat object with default values for configurations that have defaults.

Returns
MediaFormat

getEncoderCapabilities

added in API level 21
public MediaCodecInfo.EncoderCapabilities getEncoderCapabilities ()

Returns the encoding capabilities or null if this is not an encoder.

Returns
MediaCodecInfo.EncoderCapabilities

getMaxSupportedInstances

added in API level 23
public int getMaxSupportedInstances ()

Returns the max number of the supported concurrent codec instances.

This is a hint for an upper bound. Applications should not expect to successfully operate more instances than the returned value, but the actual number of concurrently operable instances may be less as it depends on the available resources at time of use.

Returns
int

getMimeType

added in API level 21
public String getMimeType ()

Returns the mime type for which this codec-capability object was created.

Returns
String

getVideoCapabilities

added in API level 21
public MediaCodecInfo.VideoCapabilities getVideoCapabilities ()

Returns the video capabilities or null if this is not a video codec.

Returns
MediaCodecInfo.VideoCapabilities

isFeatureRequired

added in API level 21
public boolean isFeatureRequired (String name)

Query codec feature requirements.

These features are required to be used by the codec, and as such, they are always turned on.

Parameters
name String

Returns
boolean

isFeatureSupported

added in API level 19
public boolean isFeatureSupported (String name)

Query codec feature capabilities.

These features are supported to be used by the codec. These include optional features that can be turned on, as well as features that are always on.

Parameters
name String

Returns
boolean

isFormatSupported

added in API level 21
public boolean isFormatSupported (MediaFormat format)

Query whether codec supports a given MediaFormat.

Note: On Build.VERSION_CODES.LOLLIPOP, format must not contain a frame rate. Use format.setString(MediaFormat.KEY_FRAME_RATE, null) to clear any existing frame rate setting in the format.

The following table summarizes the format keys considered by this method.

D: decoders only
E: encoders only
~: if both keys are provided values must match

Parameters
format MediaFormat: media format with optional feature directives.

Returns
boolean whether the codec capabilities support the given format and feature requests.

Throws
IllegalArgumentException if format is not a valid media format.
