Video processing with GPUImage Android

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment


I want to use GPUImage Android to process video in real time. I see example that creating pictures with different filters but I didnt find any example of recording video with filters. Is this possible with GPUImage Android?

How to&Answers:

android-gpuimage library does not support video recording but you can try using the android-gpuimage-videorecording library. It is a fork of the gpu-image for android that provides also the video recording functionality


see the GPUImageMovieWriter class

It should point you in the right direction for developing your own video writer on top of GPUImage.

The idea is to:

  • draw on current screen surface
  • switch to encoder input surface and draw previous frame buffer again on it
  • switch back to screen surface
