 I have a question.
When I use the VideoView to play the RTSP streaming, the VideoView
will buffering some cache buffer.
Is there any method to tell the VideoView DON'T buffer?

My code:
String VideoUri = "rtsp://";
mVideoView = (VideoView) findViewById(;

Is anybody help me?

The flipside is that it starts a little later because it has to buffer

time seamlessly it will start..
Cutting out the buffering might mean frequent hickups during play...
The first case might be acceptable for users (buffering) the second
one definitely isn't (frequent hickups)...
