Top Ways to Fix KineMaster Not Working on Android

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

Fix ‘KineMaster Mod Force Close on Android 12’

If you are trying to install KineMaster Mod on your Android 12 device, then you may be out of luck because most of the KineMaster Mods are not compatible with Android 12 as of yet. But as time progresses with future updates, you can expect a stable Mod that supports Android 12. If the app is after installation force closes, then you know the option, but you try any older version that is suitable for Android 12.

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 a hardware video encoder, which sometimes needs to run as a 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 a Codec error. You can fix this by following the steps, but files edited prior may not be solved.

  1. Reboot the device.
