android.view.InflateException: Binary XML file line #12: Error inflating class <unknown>

I am receiving many errors of kind displayed in the subj. These errors seems to be occasional and I cannot reproduce them. From stack I can learn that such error may occurs for my different layout resources. The line of XML is also varying.

Can anybody explain why this error occurs? And what I can do to fix this problem?

Answer Source

The inflate exception is not actually the problem, but really comes from another deeper issue in your layout that is then wrapped in an InflateException. A common issue is an out of memory exception when trying to inflate an imageview loading a drawable resource. If one of this resources has a high pixel resolution it would take a lot of memory causing then an inflate exception.

So basically verify that the pixel resolution in your drawables images are just the minimum necessary for your layout.
