I'm curious Android phones support Auto-IP functionality or not.

When I tried connect to AP which doesn't have a DHCP component with my
G1 dev phone,
it fails to connect to that AP.
(I hoped the dev phone succefully connect to the AP, and assign own
auto-ip by itself(169.254.xx.xx)).

Is it a natural in Android Platform that dont support Auto-IP?
Is there any special options shoud I check?

1. If and How to get video thumbnails?

I am working on a video app. And I have created a GridView that shall
display any video stored on the sdcard. Currently it only displays the
name of the video file.

I wanted to ask if and how it would be possible instead of showing
only the name to also display thumbs (or a frame preview) of the
videos ?!?

I would be grateful for any help...thanks.

This is the code I have used so far:

package com.mobilevideoeditor.moved;

   import android.content.Context;
   import android.database.Cursor;
   import android.os.Bundle;
   import android.provider.MediaStore;
   import android.view.View;
   import android.view.ViewGroup;
   import android.widget.BaseAdapter;
   import android.widget.GridView;
   import android.widget.TextView;

   public class EditGalleryView extends Activity {
       private Cursor videocursor;
       private int video_column_index;
       int count;

       public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {



           private void init_phone_video_grid() {
           String[] proj = {

           videocursor =
managedQuery(MediaStore.Video.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI, proj, null,
null, null);
           count = videocursor.getCount();
           GridView vGrid=(GridView) findViewById(;
           vGrid.setAdapter(new VideoAdapter(this));

       public class VideoAdapter extends BaseAdapter {
           private Context vContext;

           public VideoAdapter(Context c) {
               vContext = c;

           public int getCount() {
               //return mThumbIds.length;
              return count;

           public Object getItem(int position) {
               //return null;
               return position;

           public long getItemId(int position) {
               //return 0;
               return position;

           // create a new ImageView for each item referenced by the
           public View getView(int position, View convertView,
ViewGroup parent) {
             TextView tv = new
             String id = null;
             if (convertView == null) {
                   video_column_index =

                   id = videocursor.getString(video_column_index);

             } else
                   tv = (TextView) convertView;
             return tv;
