FAQ

Why there are no debug libs for debug builds of the samples

You can download the Debug Libs for debug builds after purchasing a FoxSDK license. We do not see any sense to offer this in a trial license.

What license I need to use the FoxSDK with Android

You need to purchase the FoxSDK Android Plan. We strongly suggest to purchase the extended support package because we do not give any Android integration support with the common license.

The extended support package is individual and has a range of 1999- 8999 EUR.

How to get Android version

The FoxSDK for Android comes with the Andorid Plan. Because Android is at least available for 4 platforms, the Android Plan is needed.
The Android Plan will comes with an Android Studio Sample that will show you how to compile the FoxBurner SDK for your ABI and how to use it with JNI on a device. This package also contain a sample how to use the SDK with QT for Android.

What ABI the FoxSDK support on Android

You can compile the FoxSDK for armeabi-v7a, arm64-v8a, x86 and x86-64. If you need an other ABI you have to try it, the named one are approved by our development team.

Do you support Kotlin for Android

We are happy to say that the FoxSDK works with every development language, with our nodejs module also with Javascript. So you can use Kotlin and Java but also QT for Android.

Do the SDK only support the usage of FoxToolkit and X11?

Definitely no!. The FoxSDK is a cross Platform SDK. The desktop version for common usage is compiled with FoxToolkit and the X11 libraries to use the internal dialogs.

New: Inside our QT sampels you will find the FoxSDKCore libraries, without Fox-Toolkit and X11 usage.

After purchasing the SourceCode Plan you are able to compile an library without FoxToolkit and X11 decencies. This will remove the internal dialogs and gave you a lean and clean library. You can compile it as static and dynamic library.

This library is also the core module of the desktop library.

What Linux you support

You can download the package for Ubuntu 64bit. We have compiled the FoxSDK for a wide range of Linux distributions in the past.

The FoxSDK works is confirmed on:
Deepin
OpenSuse
CentOS
Ubuntu
Mint
Fedora
STBLinux (Broadcom)

You can ask our support department for a special build.

Can I use the FoxSDK on a server

To run the FoxSDK on a server you have to purchase the server license. Please contact our support with your needs.

Can the FoxSDK encode or transcode video

The FoxSDK can burn VideoDVD, Video Blu-ray and Video VCD/SVCD from ready encoded and muxed video files and structures. To encode or transcode video files please contact our support department. We offer different modules with ffmpeg libraries.

For industrial Blu-ray video discs creation we offer a BluRayGenerator as extra software. This will remux the TS stream and also create the needed structure for the video disc.

What QT compiler I can use with FoxSDK

We suggest to use GCC or Visual Studio to use FoxSDK with QT. The usage of MingW (64) is confirmed by customers. CLang is also supported, special for our Android builds.

What library you use to decode and encode audio

Currently we use Bass Library to decode audio for burning. Encoding is since 9.5 also done by Bass Library, so no ffmpeg code is part of any FoxSDK module.

What about code quality

The FoxSDK contain a wide range of UNIT tests. With a special CI workflow we minimize recurring errors while deploy a new version to the public. With our JIRA Board we are able to keep cool heads.

Can I order own functionality

Get in contact with our support team. If your request make sense for all customers, we are free to create a ticket in our JIRA board. In other cases we can send you a quote for custom development.

Where are the files / headers located on Ubuntu

The Package paths are:

include
/usr/include/

Libs
/usr/Libs/

Binary
/usr/bin/

Samples
/usr/share/FoxSDK/Samples

How to build samples on Ubuntu

To build the FoxSDK do following:

  1. Open CMake and set as source:
  2. /usr/share/FoxSDK/Samples
  3. Set as Build path a public folder
  4. /usr/<system>/downloads/build
  5. Configure Unix Build
  6. Generate
  7. Go to the folder /usr/<system>/downloads/build (Open in Terminal) and call make

After this you will find the samples, each inside an own diretoty.
