We are trying to play a video stream on the Android platform, with no
Using the VideoView, we are able to play youtube mobile videos (e.g.
this url works just fine:

However, we need to play a given stream from an RTSP url, over which
we have no control.
The RTSP server delivers RTP/TCP/AVP packets interleaved over RTSP.
RTSP itself is supported via HTTP tunnelling over port 80.
The video format is MPEG4-Part2 (H.263).
Moreover, the rtsp url can be used one time only; built with a key-
string every time. On a desktop system, quicktime could play the
stream, VLC could not.

Is it possible to play back such a stream on an Android device

I read googling around that the builtin (openCore?) RTP stack only
supports RTP over UDP, not TCP. Is this (still) true?
Can I somehow bypass this problem?

1. Decimal only keypad

I want to have input type for the text boxes that only takes numbers
and decimal point.

Input type of Number or Decimal, still brings the full keypad and the
buttons are small.

Input type of Phone does the trick, but not all phones have a comma or
a dot to enter the decimal point.

What is the best way around?

Thanks in advance.


2. How to open a new activity when an expandableList row is clicked ?

I would still like to see an answer,    but     I have at least coded
a way to get the job done.  Duh,  Im using an array to store the
information, then using the subGroup to index into my array.  Not what
I wanted, but it will at least work.

Also, the information in my Toast now seems to be working properly, so
Im not sure what occurred there. Made no code changes that would have
affected them that I know of. Both the Group and the subGroup are not
incrementing as expected.
