Software News : Hollywood Player 5.1 for Android out now
Posted by softwarefailure on 2012/7/12 18:39:09 (2108 reads) News by the same author
Software News

Airsoft Softwair is proud to announce that Hollywood is now also available for Android devices (ARM architecture). This makes it possible for the first time for every Hollywood user to run his Hollywood applets on smart phones and tablet computers running Android. Everything you need is the Hollywood Player for Android which is now available as a free download on Google Play. To see what Hollywood on Android looks like check out a little demo video on YouTube.



Please note that the Hollywood Player for Android requires at least Android 2.3. To get your own Hollywood project onto your Android device, simply compile it as a Hollywood applet (*.hwa) from the Hollywood GUI or Hollywood Designer and then copy it into a directory named "Hollywood" on the SD card of your Android device. Then you can easily run it using the Hollywood Player!

Featurewise the Hollywood Player for Android is pretty identical to the desktop version of Hollywood, plugins and videos are fully supported. Due to security reasons, however, certain functionality like starting external programs is currently disabled. You can find a complete list of differences between the desktop and mobile versions of Hollywood in the release notes in the Hollywood forums. Please note that the Hollywood Player for Android is a WIP snapshot from the current development version of Hollywood 5.1 which has not been released yet and is still a work-in-progress.

Due to the multitude of Android devices and the often scarcely documented native development interface of Android, it can happen that this app does not run on your Android device. If that is the case, please let us know in the Hollywood forums or via email.

Would it be possible for someone to publish a hollywood app (free or not) on google play?

Currently not, because Hollywood cannot compile into *.apk directly. Building an *.apk involves several tools from the Java and Android SDK like a keystore generator and a jarsigner. Every *.apk has to be signed with a keystore. Replicating all these things in the cross-platform Hollywood compiler is way too much work. But I might release a package containing the Hollywood Player as a shared object along with a skeleton Android project which would allow users to build their own *.apk based on a Hollywood applet. But you would need Linux, Windows or Mac for that because you need the Java and Android SDK.

Thats cool, you've taken the first step to bring Hollywood to Android :)
Anything you can do to allow for separately-packaged Hollywood applications in the future would be of added benefit.

Sounds quite good.

Are these compiled apps now smaller in size or are they still of the 'bloated' type ?

@softwarefailure

I see, well if it was easy to make android apps (apk's) using it you might be looking at a substantial increase in (non amiga) hollywood developers.

working great on my HP Touchpad

Please let users have a way to upload their Hollywood programs as apps to Google Play as that would just be the biggest incentive for everyone to get working on their projects and off their arses

You only have to copy the files in a pendrive and to copy the tablet or mobile.
