making mediastore ignore files?

 My app downloads a bunch of .ogg samples to an SD card (5 MB worth, so
it wasn't practical to bundle them inside the apk). The issue: All
100+ .ogg files show up in media playing apps like Music and TuneWiki.

Is there a (semipermanent) way to tell the MediaStore not to look in a
particular folder when it scans for media? I know I can just delete
the rows from the MediaStore provider (a la 
), but then they'd just get picked up at the next rescan.

1. requestRouteToHost() API

Hi everybody,

When I make the call requestRouteToHost() with the URL I'm interested
to put traffic under my mobile_mms network, is this setting only
covers the HTTP connections I made from my application point of view??
Or if another application (another packagename) tries to make an HTTP
connection as well using the same URL I setup before, does its http
traffic will be ran under the mobile_mms or he also needs to call the
API as well in order to have the traffic over mobile_mms?

Thanks for your help.


2. Getting the Market ID

I'd like to fetch and store (on my back end server) the Market ID of
the users of my app. I'll match this against the user IDs of my
service to help detect software pirates and other monkey business. How
do I find the Market ID that was used to purchase the app?
