    Default Android play video

    For Android platform, I found some guidelines on
    http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....-(RTSP-RTP-out
    and videos on
    http://www.wowza.com/mobile.html

    On Mac, I work with Eclipse(simulator) + HTC WildFire


    When I put in my code, movie play doesn't work
    href="rtsp://184.72.239.149/vod/mp4:BigBuckBunny_175k.mov" rel="external"

    Application Error: The protocol is not supported. (rtsp://184.72.239.149/vod/mp4:BigBuckBunny_175.mov)

    But this works
    href="http://www.google.com" rel="external"

    Also, when I input to device's browser
    rtsp://184.72.239.149/vod/mp4:BigBuckBunny_175k.mov
    it works

    Do you have any idea how to play movie from code on Android?

    Are you using the Android emulator? We've had several people report that streaming doesn't work on the emulator. My suspicion is that the emulator doesn't emulate the H.264 hardware decoder that would be found on a hardware device.

    Thanks Ian,
    but I use my real phone: HTC WildFire connected via USB;
    However, I get same error message on both the Eclipse's emulator and real HTC WildFire

    Any further help with debugging, please?

    Are you going over Wi-Fi or your carrier's OTA network?

    for what it's worth, it comes up great on my Sprint EVO. So it looks like your Wowza configuration is good.

    It works with the following MRLs:

    rtsp://184.72.239.149/vod/mp4:BigBuckBunny_175k.mov
    rtsp://184.72.239.149/vod/BigBuckBunny_175k.mov
    rtsp://184.72.239.149:1935/vod/mp4:BigBuckBunny_175k.mov
    rtsp://184.72.239.149:1935/vod/BigBuckBunny_175k.mov

    Thank you for your responses, Ian!

    Have been trying to assemble simple video-playing example using jqtouch framework with appMobi on HTC Wildfire (Android), but no luck yet:

    Can you share any guidelines, please? How to target BigBuckBunny_175k.mov movie properly?

    Regards
