 Did anyone try HTTP video streaming on the emulator?

I used the api example provided with the SDK (android-sdk-

I changed the path to something like "" ; however
all I get is a meaningless error message:
"Prepare failed: status=0xffffffff "

Since the example is provided by the SDK itself, I count the code as a
correct one.

Thus I got tho questions:

1) Can the emulator play video files?
2) If it can, what are the restrictions? (file types, frame rates

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

1. Looking for ideas.

Hello everybody. I'm just starting out with the coding for android,
but that's not really why I'm here. I need some ideas or suggestions
for what people would like to have as an app. Probably won't complete
the project for a long while, but I need something to do. Any
suggestions would be great, for the most part. No tentacle simulators
or anything like that, you {*filter*} people you. And you know who you
are... >_>

Anywho, thanks for the input, and if anyone else codes, and likes some
of the ideas posted, maybe we could work together on said project.

Later folks.

Problem is, its getting filled with aHome themes. There really needs

alright, but not so great if I want to find all the new apps that
aren't XYZ. Also, it would be great if there were more sorting options
like by average rating or "rising stars". Doesn't seem like it would
be rocket science to add something like this. Though I guess it would
help even more if I could do some searching of the market from my
