Android codec support questions

 As I understand it devices can extend the audio encoders (and other codecs)
available.  The format to be used for recording is specified by an enum
value (AMR).  If I wanted to add an mp3 encoder for audio, are there a
pre-allocated enum for this somewhere. (We can't all go inventing our own).

Also where H263 is specified as a base android codec - is that H263, H263+
or H263++ flavour?

Lastly, am I right in saying that there's no video recording in Android at
the moment (or is it there in cupcake, but not v 1.0?)

Many Thanks.

1. Activity stack - home button issue

>From reading the docs I got the impression that if my application is
several activities deep and I leave the application by returning to
the home screen with the home button, I should return to the same
activity that was at the top of the stack when re-launching from the
icon. What is actually happening is the main activity is being
launched for a second time and being placed on top of the stack.

If A is the main activity and my stack is A->B when I hit the home
button, after re-launching from the home screen my stack becomes A->B-
activity A, but this just causes activity B to be killed when I re-
launch from the home screen.

Other than trying to play with the launchMode I have not set any flags
in the manifest and my intent is very basic, just specifying the class
of activity B. Is there something that I am missing? Is there a trick
to getting back in to the application with the activity stack
unchanged?

For reference, I am using the mac version of the SDK, 1.0r2, and am
running my application in the emulator, not a real phone. Using this
platform, the API Demos application behaves the way I want my
application to, but I have not been able to find what it is doing
different.
