I got a problem, I want to call a method every X minutes, if my method
got a result it should inform the user by vibrating or showing a
alertbox. if the method doesn't get a result it should wait for X
minutes and restart.
What is important, this should also work when the phone turns to
sleep. Which means I want to wake the phone from sleep to run my

Actualy I can activate my method via a Button, and it is working like
I want it to be except the background loop thing.

I already searching for a solution here in the group or also on google
but I think I don't got the right search terms to find a solution for
my problme.

I already read about the AlarmManager and broadcast receiver but I'm
not sure if this is right for my problem.

I hope you could help me.

1. Making Video files Android ready for playback over HTTP

I am working on an Android application which is supposed to play
videos over HTTP on Android devices. Before we setup a server to host
the video files just wanted a few things clarified:

As per the developer documentation, Android supports .mp4 and .3gp
container formats for video. The audio-video codec used for our media
files is H.263(video) and AAC LC (Audio).

I did a little experiment and passed URL of one of the video files to
the MediaPlayer class and got the following error:
Command PLAYER_INIT completed with an error or info

video's index (e.g moov atom) should be at the start of the file.

How do we make our videos Android-ready?
What are the different considerations that we need to make?

Please help.
