Get Missing Parts of NDK[1]


We are going to use NDK-r21e.

Version information is in file ${ANDROID_NDK}/toolchains/llvm/prebuilt/linux-x86_64/AndroidVersion.txt.

based on r365631c3
  1. visit the corresponding source at clang-r365631c3 - platform/prebuilts/clang/host/linux-x86 - Git at Googleopen in new window and download tgzopen in new window
  2. extract the downloaded file and merge it with ${ANDROID_NDK}/toolchains/llvm/prebuilt/linux-x86_64.


You may want to remove clang.real and clang++.real under ${ANDROID_NDK}/toolchains/llvm/prebuilt/linux-x86_64/bin/.


  1. launch Android Studio, select android/ijkplayer/ and import
  2. install dependencies according to logs from Android Studio
  3. run the following scripts:


We choose to use NDK-r21e for ffmpeg and NDK-r14b for anything else. There are both c and c++ sources elsewhere. However, the -std=c99 option ( configured in ) will cause an error in NDK-r21e ( with newer clang++ ) but simply a warning in NDK-r14b.


  1. click Run selected configuration or press shift + F10 in Android Studio
  2. click Sample in Android Emulator
  3. choose a video from the list and click


When sliding the video list, the simulator may treat the wheel scroll as a click event, so the safe way is to hold down the mouse and drag.


Sometimes the player would crash. Just try to reopen the video from the list. I’m currently working for a solution.



By default, you may find the executable adb at "${HOME}/Android/Sdk/platform-tools/adb". Here are some commonly used adb commands:

./adb devices [-l] # list connected devices (-l for long output)
./adb shell # run remote shell command (interactive shell if no command given)

You can enter interactive shell and cd to /sdcard/ to see whether recorder.cov has been created.


In Android Studio, click 6: Android Monitor and click logcat tab to view logcat. In addition, you can change the level of logging and use the search box ( for example "lib-monitor" ) to filter logs.
