I can't get the android sdk working in eclipse. I followed the
installation guide, but when I point android preferences to my android
sdk lib under "Window > preferences > android" I get the following

"Error loading the SDK

Error: Error parsing the SDK.
/home/anders/opt/android-sdk-linux_x86-1.1_r1/plartforms is missing"


Error when setting the android preferences in eclipse.

 It seems like you have outdated SDK. New eclipse add-on (starting from
v. 0.9.0) doesn't recognize SDK 1.1. However, if you need to develop
for SDK 1.1 you simply set target name to android 1.1 and reference
1.1. library from your application. This should work.

Your application attempts to call an Android Activity lifecycle method
on a background thread. Amazon DRM does not allow developers to invoke
Android Activity lifecycle methods on background thread. For more
information on processes and threads, please visit:
Additionally, the Android UI toolkit is not thread-safe. So, you must
not manipulate your UI from a worker thread you must do all
manipulation to your user interface from the UI thread. There are two
rules to Android's single thread model: * Do not block the UI thread *
Do not access the Android UI toolkit from outside the UI thread

I started with Jetboy and butchered it to become my app called
"Steampunk Speed Limits".
So the UI is identical to Jetboy if that helps.
I added GPS, so thats the only newness...



2. PVMFFailure when using MediaPlayer for radio streams

I had this issues too, with Android device 1.6 and 2.2 (actually, the only 
2.2 device I had this issue with was Galaxy Tab).
The solution I found, was to re-encode the original WAV files to MP3 with 
ffmpeg -i 1.wav -acodec libmp3lame -b 96k -ar 160001.mp3
