 Have you tried copying the JAR that was download with that package into your 
Android project (and adding it to your Java library path)?

 I have this same problem. I have imported the library and have edited
my Java files to use that instead of the Honeycomb APIs. My only
problem is the XML files; The <fragment> tag doesnt work.

I have set the API Level to 4 to make sure that it is not using
anything from the Honeycomb SDK so it will work on lower version

Any help would be great. Thankyou.

 Please read the comment on FragmentActivity, which points out the
limitations of the <fragment> tag for this implementation.  Look at the
sample code in API demos for uses of the <fragment> tag.

1. VideoView with cookie.

Can VideoView access to web server with cookie ?

Our video server protect video data with cookie authentication.
Video player app must authenticate and store session key to cookie
strage before access to video server.

First, My android video player app access to authentication server
using HttpClient class in android library.
Next, app access to video server with HttpClient's cookie data .
But I think HttpClient can't pass cookie data to VideoView.

Do you have any idea?


2. (EDITED by author) My app gets killed ... but I think I know why now

I think I have discovered the reason for my troubles. I also think
that the relationship to the media process was incidental.

What I really think is going on is related to the OS reclaiming

When I leave my app in the foreground (i.e. visible) it works (and "It
Won't Die, Jim") -- if I use the BACK BUTTON to push it into the
background, it *may* die, and I am convinced it is at the hands of the
OS in its memory reclamation processI assert this as my experiments
have shown that on a device with LOTS O' memory the app works
flawlesslyon a device with less memory it will almost certainly die
---- and I can guarantee to kill it if I start using the devices other

The rub here is that I NEED my app to reside in the background (or at
least my SMS BROADCAST RECEIVER class) .. I want the user to be able
to "use" his phone for other things while my app awaits a signaling
SMS. At that point I use a "notification" to get the user's attention.

I am hoping someone may respond and say "Well, all-you-gotta-do is
Blah_Blahquot;  Is there a way to make the OS "not" clean me out of
memory? Is the answer to make the b-receiver a "service"? And is that
allowable in Android?
