    Hi everybody !

    I am searching google for some time now to know if Android supports HTTP Live streaming. From what I saw, HTTP streaming is supported for file, but I did not see a clear answer as for HTTP LIVE streaming (as it works on iPhone).

    Can you tell me if Android natively support HTTP Live streaming (as a client I mean) ? If not, do you know if an application developed it ?

    Thanks for the answers ;)

    I am looking for the same thing.
    http live streaming basically means streaming a live event (live tv from a DVB or ATSC source, webcam etc) using the http protocol.
    So far i have only been able to do live streaming via rtsp but rtsp does have some limitations around NAT as Android only support rtsp via UDP and not the TCP fallback.
    Was hoping for Android 2.1 but cannot find anything positve regarding adaptive http live streaming in the internet.
    It's a shame that such a standard method is not supported by a linux based OS.

    That's a STANDARD method,but not as STANDARD as others, it's an APPLE standard method.

    How do you get the NEXTREAMING SDK for Android? I've looked all over their site and I can't find any download links or anything. Do you have to contact them?
