Fix All Errors on KineMaster App

Due to device limitations or App compatibility, you may face a number of issues. Below are all the potential solutions to troubleshoot the problems and fix all errors on KineMaster App.

Fix ‘Error Exporting On Android’

  • Update the app to the latest version from Google Play Store.
  • Avoid using any screen recorder during the process of export. The KineMaster App uses encoders to transport the file to the gallery. The video encoder of screen recorders may cause complications with the KM Coders.
  • KM works on hardware video encoder which sometimes needs to run as standalone and using any other application like YouTube or Picture-on-Picture mode may cause the process to fail.
  • If you have recently updated the app and facing the issue, try an older version of the KM app and check if the issue is fixed.

Fix ‘Codec Init Failed Error’ | Unsupported Format

This error may occur due to incorrect detection of device resolution, hardware, and software. The device resolution if not compatible with the edited file may lead to Codec error. You can fix this by following steps, but files edited prior may not be solved.

  1. Reboot the device.
  2. Open KM
  3. Tap on the Settings option. (Gear Shaped)
  4. Here open Device Capability Information.
  5. Tap the menu indicated by 3 dots () in the upper-right corner.
  6. Choose Hardware Performance Analysis to run the analysis (This may take up to 5 Minutes)
