Ok, we’ve reply from Qualcomm:

Unfortunately we are not able to support video codecs for ARMv6 OMX IL libs for Qualcomm’s QDSP5 on MSM7x27. The architecture of MSM7x27 cannot support OpenMax video codecs for ARMv6 OMX IL on QDSP5 running on Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).

I don’t know how much true in that, but we couldn’t count on something from Qualcomm.

But don’t worry, I’ll invent something 😉


PS. Don’t sign petition anymore.

    From what i read there, Qualcomm is lying. Just lying. It may be costly for them to publish such codecs. OK. But then please SAY SO!!!.

    Here is the link: https://developer.qualcomm.com/sites/default/files/snapdragon-specs.pdf
    Qualcomm does not want to lay out the driver.

    Quallcom sucks,they are so cheap.But Maclaw,you are awesome,you can do better than Quallcom 🙂

  • Vala says:

    Now that drivers do not have OpenMAX, Maclaw to release Beta 9 Ace no video, only with a camera preview … I mean, if we would have to wait a long time to wait for one of the developers can make a video. So, please, release it

  • Rahul says:

    Totally agree….

  • P4qui7o says:

    Maybe some money solve the Quallcom “problem”.
    They should told us the truth, not lying us like we are some stupid kids. I’m sure the TEAM find something alse and they can burn in hell !
