Q & A (under construction)

* Which OS is supported?

Android OS 1.5-
Tested on HTC Magic(1.5), Nexus One(2.1) and emulators.

* What permissions are necessary?

WAKE_LOCK (Prevent phone from sleeping)
It is used only playback screen.

INTERNET (Full Internet access)

* Other permissions are displayed.(on OS 1.6)

This app supports OS 1.5
Therefore, the following permissions might display on OS 1.6
But these are NOT useing.


* Can it play all mp4/mp3 files?

No. It plays only mp4/mp3 files supported by OS.

OS supports mp4 H263/H264(AVC).
Actually, it is limited more.

For example:
H.264 Baseline Profile (Supported)
H.264 Main Profile (Depends on model)
In addition, the video size etc. relate, too.

DRM(Digital Rights Management)
Only some. Generally, not.

* It plays mp4 only sound (no image)

Perhaps, the video format of the video is not supported by OS.
In many cases, the video format of them is H.264 Main Profile.
If you want to watch the video on your device, try to change video format of your video file.

-> H.264 Baseline Profile (for Android / iPhone)

* Method of opening player screen?

Please open status bar and click notification.

* I want to end the player service.

Menu -> EndService (at player screen)

NOTE: During stopped state, player service is sleeping.

* I downloaded mp4/mp3. But I can't find it in this app.

Perhaps, OS(Media Provider) does not notice. It might notice when OS reboot.

* There is bug!
