 Hi All:

Is it possible to somehow detect and capture the idle state of the
android device?
Need help on the approach which should be followed for developing idle
time based applications in android?

 Well first you need to define what you mean by "idle".

 I meant when the device goes to PARTIAL_WAKE_LOCK state.

Thanks for your reply Michael. My video is now available on Android as
well - it took 3 days after I uploaded it.

I believe Youtube re-encodes video to the Android-supported format on
its own schedule. If it hasn't done your video yet, it won't be
available in the Android native player. I don't know if there is a
to guarantee that it is re-encoded.
