    Question Did anyone write a video player for Android? Where did you get video codecs?

    Hi,
    I'm not writing any video players right now, it's just a pure curiosity
    So, what if I want to create one for Android, how can I find codecs for it?
    And how do I use them in my Java code?

    Are there any useful links on this matter?

    Thanks

    Hello goodguy,

    I have no experience in Android development but I am planning on upgrading my mobile phone so it is something I am very interested in.

    See if these links help:

    VideoPlayer.java - android-projects - Google Project Hosting

    MediaPlayer | Android Developers

    If you do attempt this, then please keep us updated.

    Thanks
    But I suppose it will be something like a standard player, which doesn't support any major video formats.

    Maybe there's some non-android specific Java video encoders for DivX or XviD? Or FLV?
