Description

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0001] The present disclosure relates to the field of terminal technology, and particularly to a multimedia file processing method, a multimedia processing apparatus, and a terminal.

BACKGROUND



[0002] Currently, in both single-system terminals and multi-system terminals, multimedia files are processed by a current operating system. For example, in single-system terminals, audio or video in a supported format can be encoded or decoded by an audio and video encoder/decoder of the terminal itself; on the other hand, audio or video in an un-supported format cannot be encoded or decoded. When processing audio or video files, the terminal cannot directly protect the audio and video files, which easily lead to leakage of sensitive information of users. Therefore, existing terminals generally protect the sensitive information by perform secondary encryption on the audio and video files. However, the secondary encryption of the audio and video files is time-consuming and has high cost, thus reduce the user experience.

[0003] Therefore, it is desirable to provide a new technical scheme, which can effectively protect the sensitive information in multimedia files to be processed and reduce the cost of protection.

SUMMARY



[0004] Based on at least one of the above mentioned problems, a new technical solution is proposed in the present disclosure, which can effectively protect sensitive information of multimedia files required to be processed, and reduce the cost of protection.

[0006] Instead of processing a sensitive multimedia file in the current operating system directly, in this technical scheme, the designated operating system is invoked to process (such as encode, decode, and so on) the multimedia file having sensitive information, in this way, the security of the sensitive information can be enhanced, the privacy of the user can be protected, and the user experience can be improved. Moreover, since the multimedia file is processed by the designated operating system, for the current operating system, the multimedia file can be considered as encrypted, and therefore, no secondary encryption of the multimedia file in the current operating system is required, and as a consequence, the cost for protecting information can be saved.

[0007] In the above-mentioned technical scheme, as an implementation, the process that the designated operating system for processing the multimedia file is selected from the multiple operating systems according to the attribute of the multimedia file acquired includes: the designated operating system is selected from the multiple operating systems according to a selection command received; or, an operating system with the highest security level is selected as the designated operating system according to the security levels of the multiple operating systems.

[0008] In this technical scheme, the designated operating system can be selected by the user directly, for example, in a dual-operating system based terminal, when the user wants to play a certain private video, he or she can set a security system to be the designated operating system for playing the video. Alternatively, an operating system with the highest security level can be selected to process the multimedia file. For example, in a terminal with an Android system, a Windows system, and a security system, the security level of the Android system is a low level, the security level of the Windows system is a middle level, and the security level of the security system is a high level; based on this, when a decoding command for a certain sensitive video is received in the Android system, the security system, which has the highest security level, can be selected to decode the sensitive video. With aid of the above-mentioned technical scheme, according to the needs of the user or according to the security level, the most appropriate or safest operating system of the multiple operating systems can be selected as the designated operating system, and the security of user information can be enhanced.
