Public methods

getComplexityRange

added in API level 21
public Range<Integer> getComplexityRange ()

Returns the supported range of encoder complexity values.

Some codecs may support multiple complexity levels, where higher complexity values use more encoder tools (e.g. perform more intensive calculations) to improve the quality or the compression ratio. Use a lower value to save power and/or time.

Returns
Range<Integer>

getQualityRange

added in API level 28
public Range<Integer> getQualityRange ()

Returns the supported range of quality values. Quality is implementation-specific. As a general rule, a higher quality setting results in a better image quality and a lower compression ratio.

Returns
Range<Integer>

isBitrateModeSupported

added in API level 21
public boolean isBitrateModeSupported (int mode)

Query whether a bitrate mode is supported.

Parameters
mode int

Returns
boolean
