Smart-TV, tunneling, 4k videos, frame drops.


Performance in android based devices is a major concern. A number of frame-drops can be seen while playing a 4k video on a less powerful device. A multi-purpose android set-top box should be capable of playing the 4k videos alongside of its basic functionalities. Sometimes the hardware allotted for the set-top box may not be up to the mark. Hence, it is difficult to handle 4k videos at a smoother rate. To tackle the above problem we have come up with the solution which tunnels the compressed/uncompressed audio track directly to the Smart-TV based upon its capability. The solution is built for ST’s set top box. In this paper we discuss basics of set top box, android audio architecture and the solution for frame drop backed by the experimental results and by using standard testing methods.
