    Applogies first if this is not the correct area to post this too - could'nt see anywhere to put this question ;)

    In my setup I have a live stream source connected which an Axis
    encoder (250S) receives and encodes to MPEG2 which I then receive into
    VLC and re-stream out as an RTSP stream.

    I'm attempting to display this LIVE video source using the Media Video
    demo that comes with the Android SDK, i've also attempted to use a
    http link in the Android emulator browser.

    But to no avail, I don't ever see a video playing.

    Can anyone confirm if the android emulator is able to play this type
    of video source and if the
    real android device say an HTC Hero could play this using RTSP.


    Is there some fundamential thing i'm missing here ?
