Looking to test my app on actual x86 android hardware

Okay so I am working on an x86 version of my app, GoneMAD Music Player, and can successfully run it in the emulator.  Audio playback has never worked smoothly in any emulator (yes i have the hardware acceleration working) so I was wondering if anyone here had an actual device that could test out it out to see if playback was smooth?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.


I just did a quick test on a x86 phone with a 320k mp3 file and did not hear anything unexpected. Is there anything special you want to have tested?


Thanks, preferably a flac (48kz or under) file and ogg file. Those decoders were ported to x86 and would be a good indication if everything is working correctly. I really don't expect any issues but I wanted to be sure before releasing anything to google play.



Flac and Ogg are both working fine :-).

I'm a little bit curious: What did you do for the x86 optimization? Just recompiled the NDK part?


Awesome thanks!

My app uses 5-6 diff native libraries, most i just did a simple recompile with the ndk for x86. ffmpeg on the other hand has tons of optimizations for every different architecture, so I had to run ./configure with all the x86 switches before using the ndk. If i remember correctly there should be a few more optimizations i can make (like enabling SSE and some of the other supported instruction sets)

If you want/need more performance you could think about enabling Intel® SSE. The performance gain should be significant. All Intel phones on the market support Intel® SSE up to SSSE3.

Yeah I definitely want to enable the SSE instructions, I would imagine they would really help speed up decoding algorithms and whatnot. ffmpeg seemed to disable them when I did an x86_32 build (they were enabled in x86_64) so i'll have to manually enable them.

Hi, you are nice work!!!
