Hello @PassionDEV,

I've tested your library to play MPEG-TS stream but seems to fail to play audio (video works ok).

As you can see, the same problem happens with ExoPlayer wrapper by Erel: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...udio-in-http-mpeg-ts-stream-exoplayer.141533/

Seems that a FFMPEG extension is needed for ExoPlayer to play this kind of stream/files for some audio codecs support: https://github.com/google/ExoPlayer/tree/release-v2/extensions/ffmpeg

B4X:
The FFmpeg module provides FfmpegAudioRenderer, which uses FFmpeg for decoding and can render audio encoded in a variety of formats.

Sample formatDecoder name(s)
Vorbisvorbis
Opusopus
FLACflac
ALACalac
PCM μ-lawpcm_mulaw
PCM A-lawpcm_alaw
MP1, MP2, MP3mp3
AMR-NBamrnb
AMR-WBamrwb
AACaac
AC-3ac3
E-AC-3eac3
DTS, DTS-HDdca
TrueHDmlp truehd

Can you take a look?

If you need, I can send you some mpeg-ts samples.

Hi, @PassionDEV

You can add a ResizeMode, which allows you to center the width and height of the screen, the fit option expands until it leaves the screen and does not allow you to use the entire resolution of the device.

You can also add all the options that exoplayer allows you in ResizeMode.

Thank you

That was quite hard to get it done but finally i done it,
Since FFMPEG that been published by google on Exoplayer Repo supports only Audio Decoding it wasnt good to support FFMPEG to decode audio only which is frustrating.
I have compiled FFmpeg and wrapped it my self to be able to add FFMPEg Video Renderer.

library updated in the first Post

Version 1.20
  • FFMPEG Now Support Video Rendering which will give the exoplayer the ability to play many mediacodecs video & audio.
have a nice day everyone.

Note you need to re-download the additional aar and place them in your Additional folder.
