i am reading a text from the net and like to have it right encoded
(german umlaute)

                        conn = new URL(mediaUrl).openConnection();
                        InputStream is = conn.getInputStream();
                        ByteArrayBuffer baf = new ByteArrayBuffer(50);
                        InputStreamReader isr = new 

                        int current = 0;
                        while ((current = isr.read()) != -1)
                                baf.append((byte) current);
                        Log.i(TAG, " *------ Load Data done -----*: ");

                        /* Convert the Bytes read to a String. */
                        html = new String(baf.toByteArray());

but still in my final "html" its not encoded and the german umlaute
are wrong.

Who can i read a stream and get it right encoded?

Check these classes:
URLEncoder:  http://developer.android.com/reference/java/net/URLEncoder.html 
URLDecoder:  http://developer.android.com/reference/java/net/URLDecoder.html 

I hope that is what you need.

encode html with inputstream

 Hi Albert,

thanks for your Effort, you already answered in my other post.
But URLEncoder, looks to encode the URL itself, not the Content.

Now I have this Solution for all other Beginners:

For example after I read my Content with:
while ((current = is.read()) != -1) { baf.append((byte) current);}

//just encode like bellow into a string.
html = EncodingUtils.getString(baf.toByteArray(), "UTF-8");

or any other Code you need like:
html = EncodingUtils.getString(baf.toByteArray(), "ISO-8859-1");
or //html = EncodingUtils.getString(baf.toByteArray(),

import org.apache.http.util.EncodingUtils;

I hope that helps

1. Video Playback / h264 encoded videos

We convert videos using ffmpeg to downsize mp4 videos. The result is a
h264 encoded video that can be played on the iPhone, in Quicktime and
other media players but the Android.
If i simply convert the source video file via Quicktime the video can
be played but i can't see any reasons why the video converted via
ffmpeg is not playing on android devices.

To show the videos i use the standard media player library from
android (android.media.MediaPlayer) which works mostly fine but not
here. As the converted video works on other (non-android) devices i
assume that this is an Android/Java problem.

Does anyone know what settings I have to use or what i have to change
to make it work with android handsets?

The converted video got the following media information :

2. Who makes embedded hardware Android devices?

I'm playing around with an idea in the back of my head, was wondering
if there were any Android devices that had touchscreen and wifi - no
other requirements necessary.  The GiiNii Movit Mini is as close to
what I'm looking for as I can find.  Are there hardware vendors that
make custom Android products such as this?  Inexpensive, ARM or MIPS,
run Android, touchscreen, wifi, that's it.  Thanks.
