Compile x264 for Android
This tutorial is to generate shared library that ffmpeg needed to enable x264 support for different platforms (armeabi, armeabi-v7a, arm64-v8a, x86, x86_64, mips).
1. Download and Unzip x264
Download x264 from the link.
2. Download build scripts of ffmpeg & x264 for android ndk from my repository
3. Copy build scripts into x264 folder
Copy the scripts inside build-scripts-of-ffmpeg-x264-for-android-ndk-master/x264 to your downloaded x264 src code folder. Ex.
cp build-scripts-of-ffmpeg-x264-for-android-ndk-master/x264/* x264/
Open text editor, check each build script, whether the ndk path and toolchain path are correct or not.
#check the paths bellow, make sure any words is correct. #for ex. if you want to build shared libraries for arm64, the lowest platform level is 21. for 32 bits, usually i choose android-18. (as you want) NDK=/Users/yesimroy/Library/Android/sdk/ndk-bundle PLATFORM=$NDK/platforms/android-21/arch-arm64/ PREBUILT=$NDK/toolchains/aarch64-linux-android-4.9/prebuilt/darwin-x86_64
4. Run the build-all script for generating all platform shared library
Run the build-all script and wait for it, you can check the console logs in case there is an error.
cd x264 ./build_android_all.sh
5. After compiling success
After compiling success, you will see an folder called android including all platform libraries inside your ffmpeg folder.
