    Hi Folks,

    I am currently developing a small app which has an option to play a few videos. However, i have tried to use a number of different conversion tools but none of the videos seem to play.

    Tried converting to mp4 (.h264), wmv, 3pg(.h264)

    The code i am using is below

    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle icicle) {
    super.onCreate(icicle);
    setContentView(R.layout.videoPlayer);
    playVideo();
    }

    private void playVideo() {
    doCleanUp();
    try {
    VideoView video = (VideoView) this.findViewById(R.id.trailerView);
    Uri uri = Uri.parse("android.resource://com.mytest.player/" + R.raw.test);
    video.setVideoURI(uri);
    video.setMediaController(new MediaController(this));
    video.requestFocus();
    video.setOnCompletionListener(this);
    video.start();
    } catch (Exception e) {
    Log.e(TAG, "error: " + e.getMessage(), e);
    }
    }

    Is there something fundamental i am doing wrong here or is it simply done to the videos i am using.

    Regards,
    Stephen
