How do I convert raw camera data into a Bitmap on Android

I obtain raw camera data rawData of type byte[], format RGBA, size 640×480, 4 bytes per pixel, from a library function. And I need to convert it to a Bitmap and display in an ImageView on the screen.

What I do is the following:

byte[] JPEGData = convertToJpeg(rawData, 640, 480, 80);
Bitmap bitmap = BitmapFactory.decodeByteArray(JPEGData , 0, JPEGData .length);    

where convertToJpeg() function is:

    public static byte[] convertToJpeg(byte[] buffer, int w, int h, int quality) {
        YuvImage yuv_image = new YuvImage(buffer, ImageFormat.NV21, w, h, null);

        Rect rect = new Rect(0, 0, w, h);
        ByteArrayOutputStream output_stream = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
        yuv_image.compressToJpeg(rect, quality, output_stream);

        Bitmap sourceBmp = BitmapFactory.decodeByteArray(output_stream.toByteArray(), 0, output_stream.size());
        Bitmap destBmp = Bitmap.createScaledBitmap(sourceBmp, (int) (w * 0.75), (int) (h * 0.75), true);

        ByteArrayOutputStream pictureStream = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
        destBmp.compress(CompressFormat.JPEG, quality, pictureStream);
        byte[] pictureByteArray = pictureStream.toByteArray();

        return pictureByteArray;

After decodeByteArray() call I have bitmap.getConfig() == ARGB_8888.

However, what I see on the screen is some chaotic picture, with some blurry green shapes of what’s been in the original picture.

What’s wrong with it?


The solution has turned out to be simple. And no need to convert to JPEG.

Bitmap bm = Bitmap.createBitmap(width, height, Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888);
