Enabling audio in emulator

 Since I found nothing about this while looking, I thought I would
document my findings here.

I had some trouble getting audio to work in the Android emulator.
Eclipse was displaying the following:
    [2008-10-06 16:18:12 - Emulator] emulator: warning: opening audio
output failed

Having a look at the emulator startup options for Android 1.0 SDK,
Release 1:
     http://code.google.com/android/reference/emulator.html #startup-options

...I found some of the Media ones are not correct . Even the self
documentation inside emulator -help-audio is not correct:
    $ emulator -useaudio
    invalid command-line parameter: -useaudio
    $ emulator -help-audio-out
    unknown option: -audio-out
    $ emulator -help-audio-in
    unknown option: -audio-in

I tried the obvious, but got the same error I was getting through
Eclipse (I guess alsa is the default)
    $ emulator -audio alsa
    emulator: warning: opening audio output failed

The only way I got sound working was to run:
    $ emulator -audio oss

Please note that while the emulator is running, you will not be able
to use other audio apps (at least I couldn't).

I hope that helps someone out there. If I have missed something,
please let me know.

 Nice. But I think your audio doesnt work normaly becouse some other
program on your machine is blocking the audio devices. Fortunatelly,
my audio works fine.

Thx anyway.

Enabling audio in emulator

 i had same problem, but when i used lsof to find out what is
accessing /dev/snd i found that nothing does..so i don't know what
could block soundcard
emulator -audio oss fixed problem for me

also i found that if i have rhytmbox  playing and i close emulator it
kills sound and make rhytmbox freeze. i would guess that emulator acts
very aggresive with sound

1. Getting ADT installed in Eclipse requires plug-in org.eclipse.jdt

I use Eclipse for Flex/Air development.  I am trying to get the ADT
installed and I get an error:
"Android Development Tools (0.9.4 v200910220141-17704) requires plug-
in 'org.eclipse.jdt'".

All I can find is that Eclipse needs to have a JDK installed of some
kind, but I have not found a package that Eclipse will accept during a
similar process as installing the ADT.

Can anyone provide a proper url of the JDT needed for Eclipse and any
tricks/steps to get it installed so that the ADT will then install/
update?

Much appreciated.

2. How can I use the google maps api with 2.0 SDK to get Distance and Time?

Hi,

Im looking for the solution to input source and destination (and maybe
a via address) into my application and then calculate the distance and
the time it takes to travel that route with car.

I found some codesnippets but was told they didnt work after the 1.0
sdk ?

If someone could please point me in the right direction :)
