Streaming live video from Axis Encoder (Via VLC) to Android

 In my setup I have a live stream source connected which an Axis
encoder (250S) receives and encodes to MPEG2 which I then receive
VLC and re-stream out as an RTSP stream.

I'm attempting to display this LIVE video source using the Media
demo that comes with the Android SDK, i've also attempted to use a
http link in the Android emulator browser.

But to no avail, I don't ever see a video playing.

Can anyone confirm if the android emulator is able to play this type
of video source and if the
real android device say an HTC Hero could play this using RTSP.


Is there some fundamential thing i'm missing here ?

1. Android ApiDemos not very good

I am starting to develop Android apps by looking ApiDemos as examples,
but I found out these demos are very difficult to work with. They used
class names like, List2.Java instead of intuitive
application names. You can not easily find out correspoding source
code(java class) for a  demo.

So I suggest that Android dep team improve these demos, and please use
good application names instead of 1, 2, 3 ,4.   These demos are very
important to advanced Java developers who usually don't need to read
manual to start developping.  A good example is all needed.



2. Non English Font Support

for making the browser compatible with non-english  fonts

do this simple steps

Download .TTF version of your font on your pc
rename the file to DroidSansFallback.ttf
replace this file with the file in your phone /system/fonts
and you're done

or use this code

adb push DroidSansFallbxack.ttf /system/fonts/DroidSansFallbxack.ttf
