Hi guys.

I just start to see Android4.3.1.1.0 demo with i.MX6DL-SDP but I couldn't find my *.mwv files in my Gallary.

My wmv can play without error on my PC and include WVC1 video(720P/1080P) and WMAP audio.

Does Android mediaserver support wmv files?

So I installed MX Player 1.7.26 and it could play them but some frames dropped.

This player had software decoder and I couldn't change to hardware(VPU).

Does i.MX6 VPU support VC-1 decode?

How can I play wmv file with VPU?

Sorry!

I found the release note which described special codec was need for WMV play.

Android_Codec_Release_Notes.pdf

? All video codecs are accelerated with the Video Processing Unit (VPU) except the

WMV7/8 decoder and the Sorenson H.263 decoder.

? All audio codecs are optimized by Freescale.

? WebM is enhanced by Freescale codecs.

? ASF, WMV, WMA, and AACPLUS need special codec package to be installed. <== Here !!

? MJPEG subtypes and MJPEG_2000 and MJPEG_B are not supported.

? MJPEG only supports YUV420 and YUV422 (horizontal) color formats.

? H.264 TS streams do not support seek and are only tested with limited streams.

Yes,  Android 4.3 does support VC-1.

Please take a look at the i.MX Android Codec Release Notes

Dear SerchMX,

Thank you for the Release Notes and quick reply.

>Yes,  Android 4.3 does support VC-1.

I hope so but browser(video player) always said "Can't play this video".
If you have same board and demo, could you check sample wmv videos?

Browser didn't play my local wmv neither, in spite of MX player could play w/ sw codec.

Again, please let me know...
Does someone knows how to enable VPU for playing wmv videos?
