Here is a screen shot.

Notes



  • You can specify a directory path or a remote URL in the edit box

  • You can specify just an mp3 file to play music only

  • Choose any 3gp file from http://daily3gp.com/ to view videos

  • The 4 buttons are for play, pause, reset and stop

  • When you specify a http or https url, we save the url contents to hard disk first and then play it

  • All the leg work was done by dahui. Many thanks!!

  • The icons are from here

  • MediaPlayer does not yet support any remote url’s or MPEG4 video AFAICT

Here’s the code

  1. Hi,
    Thanks for your code, It works like a charm but i need to know one thing where the temp file is created and is it not necessary to delete the temp file every time when the media is completed

    • Hey, How did you all guys worked this code? I’m not able run any video using this code. It runs on my device. when i play with the sdcard path ( file:///sdcard/a.mp4), it doesn’t run my video there. And i kept that as with default path also didn’t play any video. But i want to run a video which is from Raw folder available in project resource using this code…Can it be done? If yes, how? Please advice asap.

  9. Very nice example. For those who have problem to run it:
    How it is written one will need to use HVGA-L mode of emulator or to edit the following line inside onCreate:
    holder.setFixedSize(400, 300);
    to something less ambitious like 200×200.

  19. Hi,
    thanks a lot for that example!
    1. I can play videos from the internet when i remove the extra thread and start & prepare the player without it. Do you really need an extra thread? The GUI is reacting nevertheless, so whats the advantage?
    2. How can i play local files? I put them into the resource folder (res/raw/), but no path which i enter in the textfield seem to be correct.

    thanks for help

  20. Ok,
    i figured out a way to play local videos. If you play them from the Internet, they get stored in /tmp/… I just copied a video over eclipse FileExplorer into that directory and played the url /tmp/filename. But i don´t know how to play files within the resources directory. Most likely they are stored in the app.apk. Why can´t i play them with /res/raw/filenname?

  23. Hi,

    I could resolve all the errors. I’m finding problem at the run time. I’m getting NullPointerException error. Found that the error is due to
    mPreview = (SurfaceView) findViewById(R.id.surface)
    mPreview is null.
    Likewise, mPath, mPlay, … are also null.

    Can anyone suggest how to overcome this issue???????

  80. Has anybody extended on this design? I listen to folder based audio courses and most media players are not very good at helping me managing them.

    I really like that this app starts with a folder view and it would be great if you could just say “play this folder” so that when one file finished it would load and play the next file. Even better if it remembered which file you were on and the location within that file per directory.

    And of course work with the bluetooth control buttons on my stereo headset and behave nicely when switching from audio to phone and back again.

    Any ideas where I can find an app like that?

  148. Hi,

    I have to download the image/Video from WCF Rest Service to AndroidApp.

    From Rest service, I am sending the Image in JSON(base64 format).
    In Android, I am not able to retrieve that JSON string.

    I am getting errors in ” JSONObject Details = new JSONObject(Tempbuffer); ”

    The errors are: “Timed out Exception” & “Unterminated character at 122449 position.”
    Note: 122449 is the Last character in JSON string

    Here is My code..

    DefaultHttpClient client = new DefaultHttpClient();
    str=tvItemName.getText().toString();

    HttpGet request = new HttpGet(DETAILS_URI + str);

    request.setHeader(“Accept”, “application/json”);
    request.setHeader(“Content-type”, “application/json”);

    //get the response
    HttpResponse response = client.execute(request);

    HttpEntity entity = response.getEntity();

    if(entity.getContentLength() != 0)
    {
    // stream reader object
    Reader DetailsReader = new InputStreamReader(response.getEntity().getContent());
    //create a buffer to fill if from reader
    char[] buffer = new char[(int) response.getEntity().getContentLength()];

    //fill the buffer by the help of reader
    DetailsReader.read(buffer);
    //close the reader streams
    DetailsReader.close();
    //String Temp2=null;

    String Tempbuffer = new String(buffer);

    JSONObject Details = new JSONObject(Tempbuffer); // —-Here I am getting Error—————
