My Android apps

BitStream (new!)

Live Stream to YouTube, Twitch, Chromecast, your local network, or record videos using powerful custom encoding options. Written using Android's MediaCodec hardware encoder and written-from-scratch RTMP client protocol implementation, FLV and fragmented MP4 media containers, and even a very tiny HTTP server for LAN/Chromecast streaming.

Legislativ (100.000+ installs!)

Romanian-targeted app which is basically the only real Android alternative for browsing the country's (less or more stupid) laws. Uses SQLite as a local database, updates are brought down over HTTP using a custom sync protocol that uses differences in data for optimal update package size.

(discontinued) ECM Handler

ECM stands for "encrypted contained message" and was a very, very long shot at attempting to put in the wild a way of allowing short encrypted messages to pass through unsecured channels (let's say, web pages or QR codes). It allows the non-standard "ecm://" protocol to reach the app, a protocol which contains embedded encrypted data instead of the usual hostname/query parts that would make a readable URI. The design of this protocol was created by me and uses military-strenth cryptography principles (AES-256, message checksum) and also compresses the data before encryption.

C/C++ projects

(discontinued) Yahoo! Messenger Now Playing v5.1 - March 23, 2011
A very small native Winamp plugin (NOT a separate application) that allows you to show in Yahoo! Messenger 11, 10, 9 or older what you are playing in Winamp. Click the link to find out why it is much, much better than any other plugin with the same purpose.

(discontinued) HyperIM 2.14 - November 25, 2007 - Popular program used by hundreds of thousands of users.
What you get in less than 1 MB: complex status manager for Yahoo! Messenger, MSN Messenger / Windows Live Messenger, Google Talk, Skype, with support for media info from 19 media players (Winamp, WMP, iTunes, foobar2000, Musicmatch Jukebox, and whole lot others), details from uTorrent, Yahoo! auto-replies, Yahoo! Magic Avatars, Yahoo! Emoticons chooser, and many many other plugins...

(discontinued) Yahoo! Messenger Magic Avatar v0.618 - March 28th 2007
This is a stand-alone version of the similar plugin from HyperIM. It allows you to create a 16x16 bitmap unseemingly hidden in a 96x96 bitmap. © 2005 - 2016 Adrian Creţu
