Yes, Android supports streaming video. You "do it" by writing an Android
activity that uses either VideoView or a combination of MediaPlayer and
a SurfaceView. Your video has to be in one of the supported formats: 

and, at least for MP4 files, they have to be "safe for streaming":

2. Can't upload my .apk to the market - minSdkVersion error every time.

Hi all, I am desperately looking for help with this! I've found many
other forums on the subject but none of the suggestions ever help!

I wrote a basic soundboard app, and it runs fine there's nothing wrong
with it. I want to upload it to the Market, but every time I try I get
an error message:

Market requires the minSdkVersion to be set to a positive 32-bit
integer in AndroidManifest.xml

That is already in there, I'm using 1.5 so I have my minSdkVersion set
at 3. I don't understand what the problem is, and I've asked a lot of
devs that never know what to tell me. I don't want to use a different
platform because my phone currently uses 1.5. Others have suggested
putting the <uses-sdk> line under the <manifest> line, but that hasn't
helped at all. Here is what my manifest looks like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
- <manifest xmlns:android=""
package="com.sav.soundboard" android:versionName="1.0"
- <application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/
- <activity android:name=".Soundboard" android:label="@string/
- <intent-filter>
  <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
  <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />

 <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="3" />

Does anyone know how to fix this??
