Antutu Video Tester Automatically Tests Video and Audio Codecs & Playback Quality in Android

When I read a review about MK808B Plus this morning, I noticed the reviewer used Antutu Video Tester to evaluate video/audio performance of the device. Somehow I had never noticed it, and Antutu developers claim it can not only check whether video or audio codec are supported, but the tool can also give an appraisal of video quality:

AnTuTu Video Test is a professional tool for testing video playback capability of Android Smart TV, set-top boxes and other devices. It integrates a few featured videos and testing algorithms that can help users judge the playback performance of the devices clearly. AnTuTu video test can not only detect the video playback formats devices support, but also can test the playback quality of devices.

Antutu_Video_TesterSo I decided to try it out on Open Hour Chameleon Android media player based on Rockchip RK3288 processor. The first test you click on Video Test will it download the video samples (155 MB), all very short files based on Sintel video from the Blender Foundation with different resolutions, video & audio codecs. Once the download is complete, the test will automatically, and it last just maybe 2 or 3 minutes, so it’s much faster than manual testing.

Let’s check out the results and list of files.

So they test a bunch of videos with 1080p and 2160p resolution with the most common codec, but it’s far from extensive. Based on this table, the only problem with the box is that it can not play DTS or AC-3 files with the video player (stock?) used in the tester. So overall it does not look that bad. But since I noticed some 1080p pixelated videos, and/or skipped frames, Chameleon got just 263 points, which is rather low compared to some other television sets or TV boxes, and should mean Antutu Video Tester does indeed take into account video playback “quality” as advertised.

Antutu_Video_Tester_Top_Scores_for_TVHimedia Q5 with HiSilicon SoC (three models are available), Letv C1S with a dual core processor @ 1.5 GHz / Mali-400MP2 GPU, and Kaiboer F5 featuring Mstar MSO9180 SoC are the top three TV boxes based on this test, but unfortunately these are mostly reserved to the Chinese market.

Have you tried on your Android media player? What’s your score?
