This is carried over from blakemcconnell’s post on the old forum:
Hi, I’m strongly considering using Cinder for some production code targeting Ubuntu 16.04 x64. What is the status of video and audio support at this time? I was able to build Cinder, dependencies and examples but the Quicktime samples crash immediately at runtime. I looked around but was unable to find current documentation on the state of this effort.
Video and audio (output only, input is still on the todo list) are both supported on linux. Details are on Hai’s original RFC post here.
I’m not sure what problems you’re having with the quicktime samples on linux. Are you using the latest android_linux branch? By the way, there is a largish video refactor going on right now in this pull request, I’m sure @petros would love testers and feedback if you’re up for it.
