 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

location information (when the GPS module can't report the
information, as described above), how should the application handle it
in general?
