    Hello I am having an issue with a small application that I am making. The APK compiles and I am not receiving any errors, however when I go to open the application up it does not show up in my application list despite it saying it installed.

    Here is my JAVA and XML files.

    [HIGH]package com.AnVideoView;

    import android.app.Activity;
    import android.os.Bundle;
    import android.widget.MediaController;
    import android.widget.VideoView;

    public class AnVideoView extends Activity {

    String SrcPath = "/sdcard/Video/video.mp4";

    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.main);
    VideoView myVideoView = (VideoView)findViewById(R.id.myvideoview);
    myVideoView.setVideoPath(SrcPath);
    myVideoView.setMediaController(new MediaController(this));
    myVideoView.requestFocus();
    myVideoView.start();
    }
    }[/HIGH]

    XML
    [HIGH]<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:eek:rientation="vertical"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    >
    <TextView
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:text="My Video Player"
    />
    <LinearLayout
    android:eek:rientation="vertical"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    >
    <VideoView
    android:id="@+id/myvideoview"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    />
    </LinearLayout>
    </LinearLayout>[/HIGH]

    Hmmm.. this is a tricky bug. I'll study this and if I find something wrong, I will let you know. I am taking programming classes in java and C++, so I'm new to the developing world, but I will be of as much assistance as possible!

    I've had a similar issue when I tried installing QPST.apk on my phone. Installed correctly, but it showed as a system app, so it did not show up on my apps list

    On a side note, is is possible to embed a mp4 into an application so that the whole thing is self contained?

    Can you post your manifest file?

    I changed the minsdk to 15 and that seemed to have fixed the problem. Now I want to just have a stop play option without the forward or back and embed the video file into the apk. Is it even possible to embed a mp4 into a apk file?

    EDIT: I was able to embed the video file into the APK, I am still stuck on making the control just have a stop and play button though.
