Hi all,

Recently some people have been asking about the support of GPAC on Android, in particular since the post on our web site (http://gpac.wp.institut-telecom.fr/2011/01/22/gpac-on-galaxy-tab/). So far we have focused the porting work on the client Osmo4, with some good results. The code, makefiles and so on are already available on our SVN repository. We should be posting soon how to work this out exactly.

Then some people want to port MP4Box. In particular there are discussions on the JW Player forum related to that:

MP4Box is a different application from Osmo4. It is command-line, without GUI. We haven't looked into how to port it on Android. Suggestions are welcome. However, integrating MP4Box code in an existing application should not be a problem, since most of the code is shared between Osmo4 and MP4Box.
