Code Sample: Media Sample for Android* Basic Touch Media Player

By Lana Lindberg

Media Sample – Android* Basic Touch Media Player

This sample demonstrates the basic interfaces available within Android that allow developers to playback various locally stored media files. It also illustrates a basic approach to add touch capabilities to an application that already uses MediaController interfaces. VideoView enables the display of video, while the MediaController allows users to control the playback, pause, fast forward, and rewind through a basic transport interface. The transport interface exposed by MediaController can be hidden. In this application we hide the default MediaController transport and supplement the application with a rudimentary touch interface enabled by handling onTouchEvent() messages.

To build this sample code, you need to have the Android development environment installed. Please refer to this link for more details: http://developer.android.com/index.html
