libmedia source code in Android 4.1 Jellybean

By admin | August 28, 2012

If you’ve been wondering where the sources (previously located at platform/frameworks/base/media/libmedia) have gone in Android 4.1 “Jellybean”, it has been split to a new repository, platform/frameworks/av.

This was initially announced on Google Groups in April but it was not specified where the files were to be relocated to. Most Google searches for libmedia still show it to be under frameworks/base.

The specific commit that removed libmedia from frameworks/base was made by James Dong of Google. This note should help some of us who are searching for the new and updated libmedia source.
