No. It's not.

Trying to do streaming causes MediaPlayer to produce various bizarre and 
undocumented errors, which probably all boil down to 'not supported yet'.

 not sure about video streaming, but mp3 audio streaming is somewhat
possible...

I don't know who u is, and I don't know how tunewiki works, but if it's 
anything like the streaming audio app that *I* wrote, it works by using 
one thread to download the MP3 into a file, and then telling MediaPlayer 
to play from the file in another thread.

This approach works, but isn't really adequate; you need to pad the file 
out with zeroes to make it the right length otherwise MediaPlayer gets 
very confused about how long the audio is, and it *still* gets very 
confused (and crashes) if you use oggs instead of MP3s.

But this is strictly a workaround, and a pretty clunky and unreliable 
one. MediaPlayer is *supposed* to be able to open remote URLs directly, 
but that doesn't work yet.

 It is possible to play streaming audio and progressive streaming video using
the media samples posted to the android-developers group files section.

For creating progressive streamable video >>>one of the group users got it
working through Quick Time Pro and sent it along:

Here are the steps :

1. Open the video file in Quick Time Pro.

2. Goto File > Export

3. Select type as 'Movie to 3G'

4. Click Options

5. Select file format as 3gpp

6. In the drop down menu below the file format, select 'Streaming' from the
list of available options (Audio, Video, Text, Streaming, Advanced)

7. Select the required maximum packet size and maximum packet duration

8. Click Save

 From the above post I believe, streaming is possible but the support of 
playing still is not available on emulator. so keep your code ready and 
fingers crossed until you could test your code on emulator till next 
release.

Other Threads

1. Of Progress Bars and Wait Dialogs

I have an application that initializes a bunch of strings on startup.  
This takes a few seconds and I need either a progress bar or wait 
dialog.  On other platforms this is usually not problem to pop something 
up.  But Android needs to work on either how the progress bar (maybe in 
the title bar works) or how temporary dialogs work.  I've seen other 
postings from people looking to make their progress bars or dialogs work 
but often no reply.  Apparently none of these things will work until the 
layout is displayed?  And it is of course a bunch of strings in a 
TextView in my layout that is causing the delay.  What workarounds are 
there?  I've not seen any examples that deal with this so far.

2. MyFavs application sending/receiving SMS

Could someone tell me how the SMS messages look like that the MyFavs
application gets? In addition it would be nice to know if they fire
the broadcast receiver for incoming SMS messages.

Thank you very much.
