Maps API Add-Ons Device Support?

I am designing an application for Android, and I was thinking of
adding Maps support ( 
apis/) to my application.  However, I don't want to add this if many
people with Android phones won't be able to use it.

I've found lists of devices and their API levels; however, is there a
list of devices and their compatibility with Google API add-ons?

Thank you,


Maps API Add-Ons Device Support?

 I haven't seen a list for google api compatability, however, the
google apis should work for *most* devices. The maps application can
be downloaded by anyone with a Google Experience phone, from the
market app now. The only time you're going to run into issues will be
anyone running an AOSP build, we don't have access to the official
market or gmaps app :)

I've installed apps requiring maps on hero roms, as well as the G1 and
MyTouch3G, so you should be safe for the vast majority of users.

1. RTP stream video decoding

A little bit of hunting around has found this
which somebody is trying to use a LocalSocket as a FileDescriptor
to MediaPlayer. Unfortunately he doesn't get an answer.

Does anybody have any working code example where a LocalSocket could be used
to pass data to MediaPlayer? It seems like this would solve my problem as I
could pass data from my incoming RTP stream to a localsocket (I think).

Do you think this could work?
