    Hi,

    I want to write a code for playing the playlist stream video file which is m3u8 format. If I give the source url link of the playlist (m3u8) in the MediaPlayer, it throws exception. Can you please help me for finding the solution.


    Thanks in Advance.

    Welcome to AF

    The MediaPlayer is bugged with regards to starting playlists via intents. You kinda have to roll your own solution.

    It wont ever understand a path to a playlist either m3u or m3u8 - unless they recently fixed that in honeycomb or something.

    Also feel free to drop by out app dev section: http://androidforums.com/application-development/

    Dice Player can do this.

    Certainly 3rd Party media players probably all handle the intent correctly, but the default/stock Android media player does not. :(

    Just FYI, thes OP's question is a development question not a "what app can handle this" question.

    I'm gonna go ahead and move this to the development forum because the response are getting confused :)
