    Default Stream videos using Wowza in an Android app ?

    I am streaming video on demand on my website using a wowza server and jwplayer (with the securetoken key exchanged between jwplayer and wowza).

    I am considering developping an Android app to deliver the same VOD content to my registered users on android phones.
    I am totaly new to android app developping.
    Is it possible to embed jwplayer inside an android app and stream video from my wowza server ? and still be able to secure the streaming with securetoken ?
    If not, how should i deliver my videos inside the android app using wowza?

    Thank you for your help.

    What works in the current versions of Android is HLS (cupertino) streaming and RTSP. What works in all Android devices is RTSP. Flash RTMP and HTTP work in some recent versions, but not current very recent, current and versions going forward, as I understand it. So you can do rtsp for the best coverage, and HLS for current versions. I wouldn't use Flash. JW player supports HLS. It should work in current versions, but I am not certain.
