Android:java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Failed to allocate a 23970828 byte allocation with 2097152 free bytes and 2MB until OOM

I want to show the Bitmap image in ImageView from sd card which is stored already. After run my application is crash and getting OutOfMemoryError error of:


(java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Failed to allocate a 23970828 byte allocation with 2097152 free bytes and 2MB until OOM)


I have no idea or why its out of memory. I think my image size is very large so I tried to change it.

Iterator<String> it = imageArray.iterator();
while (it.hasNext()) {
Object element = it.next();
String objElement = element.toString();
Log.e("objElement ", " = " + objElement);
final ImageView imageView = new ImageView (getContext());
final ProgressBar pBar = new ProgressBar(getContext(), null,
android.R.attr.progressBarStyleSmall);
imageView.setTag(it);
pBar.setTag(it);

imageView.setImageResource(R.drawable.img_placeholder);
pBar.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);

if (objElement.endsWith(mp3_Pattern)) {
Log.e("Mp3 ", " ends with ");
pBar.setVisibility(View.GONE);
imageView.setImageResource(R.drawable.audio_control);
}
if (objElement.endsWith(png_Pattern)) {
Bitmap bitmap = BitmapFactory.decodeFile(objElement);
int size = Math.min(bitmap.getWidth(), bitmap.getHeight());
int x = (bitmap.getWidth() - size) / 2;
int y = (bitmap.getHeight() - size) / 2;
Bitmap bitmap_Resul = Bitmap.createBitmap(bitmap, x, y, size, size);
Log.e("bitmap_Resul "," = "+ bitmap_Resul);

if (bitmap_Resul != bitmap) {
bitmap.recycle();
}
imageView.setImageBitmap(bitmap_Resul);
Log.e("png_Pattern ", " ends with ");
Log.e(" bitmap "," = " + bitmap);
}

holder.linearLayout.addView(imageView);
holder.linearLayout.addView(pBar);


The log cat information:

Thanks in advanced.

Answer

OutOfMemoryError is the most common problem occur in android while especially dealing with bitmaps. This error is thrown by the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) when an object cannot be allocated due to lack of memory space and also, the garbage collector cannot free some space.

I think you should read some at Androids Developer page, specially here:Displaying Bitmaps Efficiently

Read all 5 lessons and rewrite your code again. If it still don't work we will be happy to see what you've done wrong with the tutorial material.

Here some of possible answers for these type of errors in SOF
