Android : Playing Local 3gp Video File Causes PVMFErrNotSupported

Jul 21, 2009

I plan to have a 3gp video file that will come with the installation package, it will be placed in /files/ subdirectory, and I would like to ask the native Android media player to play it when I want that.

Here is what I have planned to do/code:

Intent intent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIEW);

Uri data = Uri.parse("BattlestarGalactica.3gp"); intent.setDataAndType(data,"video/3gpp"); startActivity(intent);

However, when I try to launch the lines above, I get the following error:

CODE:.............

And the video can not be played.

What am I doing wrong that is not applicable to Android platform?

General :: Playing Local Audio File In Webview App

Feb 3, 2012

When trying to play a local mp3 file included in the APK, nothing happens. However, if I pull an mp3 from the web it works.

e.g.

< a u d i o src="[URL]..." > WORKS

< a u d i o src="01.mp3" > DOES NOT WORK

I tried looking through logs for clues and found this line. I'm not sure if it's relevant or not.

PlayerDriver::isProtectedFile(file:///android_asset/www/01.mp3)

I'm new to Android development, so I can only guess that the file is somehow inaccessible for streaming.

I'd love to get this figured out though. Having to pull the files remotely every time is not a desirable solution.

Some additional info. Either solution works when tested in the browser. The local file problem only arises when I convert it to an app. I'm using PhoneGap build to create the APK.

Media :: Video File Formats And Codecs Playing

Sep 25, 2010

This is 2010. I refuse to believe that you can only play movies/video files that have .avi, .mp4, .mpg, .mkv file formats by converting. I remember Sony was slow on the uptake when they started the media server streaming which I use on a daily basis at home now.Is there a program that will decode the files as you stream them? Any codecs to install on the Droid X? I have thousands of video files and "converting" is time consuming not to mention creating two video files instead of one to play on devices. Converting is BS and whoever thought "Let's just have the users convert the video files" needs to take a long walk off a short pier.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 : Playing Video File

Oct 22, 2010

I am having issues with playing videos on my X10. I have used Media Go to convert .avi to .mp4 before and they have worked fine but now I can only get 1 file to work out of 10. I have played the converted files in Mediscape and now they dont want to work.

So......

I have tried several different conversion programs (Smart C, Double Twist and some others I cant remember) and I have also tried a couple of different players as well (Rock Player, YxFlash, Real Player) and nothing works.

YxFlash used to let me play .avi and I believe that Rock Player is supposed to be able to support .avi as well. Now, nothing.

I dont mind converting the files, IF THEY WORK.

General :: Playing Local MP3s From SD Or Internal Storage?

Apr 27, 2013

This should be so simple, but apparently, it's not. I have a folder on my Nexus 4 internal storage:

/sdcard/Music/Favorite Songs/Current

... with a bunch of MP3s in it with ID3 v2.4 tagging. How in the world do I add these to the Play Music app (not cloud) without using some desktop manager? I also tried installing Omich Player (a fork of Apollo) and while I can browse to the folder, none of my music shows up under artists/albums/etc.

General :: How To Enable Prompt To Choose Video Player While Playing Any Video In Browser

Dec 3, 2012

I am using the Alcatel OT-918d (stock rom, root access enabled) and while playing videos in the browser, I do not get an action prompt to choose from the available video players and browser plays the video using "default video player".

The so called "default video player" has been uninstalled though. Have cleared cache, clear defaults, clear data for the browser but still do not get a prompt to choose a video player while playing videos from the browser.

Also installed the "Default App Manager" to check for the default video player. However, it indicates no defaults to play any videos (either from file or streaming videos).

(If I play a stored video from phone or SD card, I do get the prompt to choose a video player. But do not get a prompt if playing any video in the browser.)

Android :: Can I Play A Local Video Not On Sdcard

Jan 27, 2009

I can only get the VideoView to play videos on the sdcard, NOT local to my application. Is there a permission requirement to get this working or can it only access the sdcard?

Working: VideoView videoView = (VideoView) findViewById(R.id.video); videoView.setPath("/sdcard/video.mp4");

Not Working ("Cannot Play Video"): VideoView videoView = (VideoView) findViewById(R.id.video); videoView.setPath("/data/data/com.myapp/app_files/video.mp4");

Log Errors: 01-27 15:56:14.920: ERROR/MediaPlayer(3341): Error (-4,0) 01-27 15:56:14.920: DEBUG/VideoView(3341): Error: -4,0

Android : Can SAX Use A Local Resource XML File?

Jul 26, 2010

All of the android examples for XmlPullParser pull from a local resource file, and all of the SAX examples pull the XML from a URL. I've been told SAX is faster, so I'm trying to use that to pull data from a local resource file (res/xml/thefile.xml)

The example code I'm working off of is here. So in that example, the code I want to change is:

URL url = new URL("http://example.com/example.xml");
...
xr.parse(new InputSource(url.openStream()));

Instead of using URL, I want to use getXml(R.xml.thefile)
Is that possible, or does SAX need to get data from a URL?

Android :: MediaPlayer - Command PLAYER_SET_DATA_SOURCE Completed With Error Or Info PVMFErrNotSupported

Dec 8, 2009

I have two versions of the same application that starts by playing an mp3 from the res/raw/ directory, both versions of code are the same as far as the MediaPlayer is concerned and the code used. I get the following error in one version and it plays just I would expect in the other version. I am using 1.5 as my target. I get the same issue on my the devices (G1 and G2) as well as the emulator. I have read some other posts with the same issue and still am unable to resolve my own issue. For those who are going to come back with use MediaPLayer.create (context, id) I can not as I want to control what is being played without creating new instances of the player. It perplexes me that the same code works in another version of the same app that has no change in the code (in fact the alternative app just has a reduced number of images in the drawable folder).

The error message also will occur if the file is not found by using mp.setDataSource("file");

CODE:.....................

Android :: Open A Local App File In Another App Via An Intent

Nov 8, 2010

I don't want to store said file on the sdcard in this case. The file also cannot be storage directly in the apps local files directory. It needs to be in a subdirectory, so it cannot write the file using openFileOutput() and MODE_WORLD_READABLE.

The app may download files small files like pdfs and store them locally in a subdirectory. I would like to be able to have the user open these files if they have an app that can open them.

For example here is an intent for sending a pdf:

CODE:..............

path being something like: /data/data/packagename/files/subdir/example.pdf

That intent will open a pdf viewer, but the viewer is unable to open the file. I assume this is a permissions issue. I tried Mark Murphy's suggestion here: http://groups.google.com/group/android-developers/browse_thread/thread/4e55d869213483a9/b7270078ac1a2744?lnk=raot of using Runtime.getRuntime().exec("chmod 755 " + fileName); but it didn't make any difference. He also suggested a Content Provider but I would like to avoid it if I can because it seems like a lot just to get this file over to another app.

If the content provider is the only option, do I have to save the file to the content provider or can I just use the content provider as a pass through to get it to the other app when I need to?

How can i load a local (on my HD) KML or KMZ file to the android application? I know that these lines do the work:

Android :: Getting Google Maps To Accept Local KML File?

Mar 5, 2010

I am trying to get googlemaps to accept a local KML file.
final Intent myIntent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIEW,
Uri.parse("geo:0,0?q=file://" + Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory() + "/locate.kml"));
startActivity(myIntent);

The file is on the SD card, and is a valid KML file. Google Maps loads up, but says it cannot find the file.
final Intent myIntent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIEW,
Uri.parse("geo:0,0?q=http://www.website.com/locate.kml"));
startActivity(myIntent);

Works fine. geo: 0,0? q= seems to be very under documented, how to use it to refer to a local file?
