    I have been writing a RTSP streaming app in eclipse for android.
    Its a RTSP Streaming client.

    I am able to do the handshaking i.e am able to receive responses for DESCRIBE, SETUP, PLAY commands.

    I am receiving the data in multicast mode.

    The problem is that I am unable to receive the data(video) packets thereafter.

    Following is the code i have used to receive multicast data

    wifi = (WifiManager) getSystemService(getApplicationContext().WIFI_SERVICE);

    mLock = wifi.createMulticastLock("mylock");

    MulticastSocket sock;
    InetAddress sessAddr = netAddress.getByName("");
    sock = new MulticastSocket(1100);//48180);

    byte b = 64;

    byte[] byData = new byte[500];
    DatagramPacket pack = new DatagramPacket(byData, 500);


    The code hangs at receive call.
    Plus there are following tags in manifest xml

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CHANGE_WIFI_MULTICAST_STATE" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE" />

    Please suggest.
