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?

 well most of the time buffering is just part of streaming...
it's there so that a user will get a more seamless playback of the
The flipside is that it starts a little later because it has to buffer
beforehand, and when it has enough data to play a specific amount of
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)...

I can get search results in my app's search area (selecting the app
icon in the 2.3 quick search box to restrict the search to my app).

However, i dont see any of my results when All is selected.  Does
android just deprioritize them?  What determines what search results
show up in the All category?  Is there something I need to do?
