*cough*

After being an idiot for several days and spending another 5+ hours today working on it i give you...

Video Streaming

Two things to note, one, that's a debug build so the search button doesn't go to the search page it:

1) Logs me into the org
2) Loads the video preview page
3) Opens the video using Andriod's native media player.

There's a problem however. My phone can't play the video so in the preview linked above i'm using my Xoom tablet. I suspect this is a problem with the 2.x versions of android but my tablet, which is running 3.1, doesn't have any trouble at all. I am going to look into other options since I can play the video just fine using another video player on my phone (RockPlayer).

Anyway, pretty excited to get it working finally and I didn't have to do anything to the website >.>

PS: if you're going to do any kind of programming, make sure your test cases use accurate and valid data. I spent a lot of wasted time (not to mention other people who were helping) when I didn't have to, all because of a stupid little error in the URL string.

I had Ehllen test it for me on different hardware and she says she got it working so i'm having her take a picture for me.

That said, I'm going to continue working on this until I find another solution so I want a larger testbase with different hardware/software versions. If you're interested, let me know and I'll contact you when I'm ready for people to test.

Forgot to add, if you want to help test, please PM me with the following details:

Phone/Tablet Manufacturer and Model .
Version of Android (this can be found by going to settings and clicking on About Phone. If you are running any custom roms, let me know also.)
Best method of contact.

Example:

Motorola Droid
2.2.1 (Bugless Beast 0.6.2.1)
Org PM

Motorola Xoom
3.1
E-Mail: Pwolf@pwolfamv.com

I'm not looking for people who just want it and will never contact me with issues or respond to inquires. I'm looking for people who seriously want to see this work and are willing to help get it there.

I'd be down for testing if I had an android phone. If only an iphone port was possible, but I suppose that'd require all streaming vids to be changed to html5 format. Seems too much work imho.

why would it require html5 video? you can't play a mp4's on the iphone? ;)

As far as I know, it wouldn't be any different from the method i'm using now. I just hate Objective C so at the moment i have no plans to make an iPhone app. The other issue is I don't want to put the app on the App Store. Two reasons:

1) I don't want to pay $100 a year to apple for something I don't plan on making money on and
2) I have no plans, currently, to put the android app on the Android Market so I wont put it on the App Store, in which case, the only way you could use it is if you jailbreak your iPhone (Android at least gives you the option if you want to install non-market apps).

However, once I get the Android app to a point where I feel like I don't need to work on it anymore (aside from bug fixes), that will give me a base to work on if I decide to pull my hair out trying to code in Objective C again :| Of course this could all be fixed if everyone just used a better handset anyway >.> *cough* Android > iOS *cough*

That said, I've finished the login code so I just have a few more things to fix up before I feel comfortable releasing a test build for people to play with. if not this next week here, then probably next weekend expect something in your mailbox :P

I wasn't aware the org's streaming was mp4 and not flash. That does change things. Though I'd have to agree on the lack of will to pay so much to put an app up that there would be no intention of making money with. Can't say I'd want to try coding in objective C either.

I'd be more inclined to use android if there was a more widely used method for updating the version (and not have it be based on when the manufacturer feels they want to let you) and what I'd deem a good android phone for AT&T's network. Though right now I'm kind of at the mercy of my family for what network/handset I own. But that's just me.

Root and flash a new ROM ;) Most of the time you get better performance out of it than the stock firmware the manufacturer/carrier gives you. Not to mention non of the shitty launchers or other apps they put on it.

Samsung Captivate w/ Cognition 3.02 here. Sure, the Atrix offers better performance, but then you have to deal with the bootlock Motorola puts on their phones. Also, even at 480x800, I'm spoiled by the SAMOLED screen. Absolutely beautiful colors compared to a regular LCD.

Been meaning to throw Cyanogen 7 on here (since they're using Gingerbread now), but they only have nightlies for the Captivate, and I want a stable build...

I agree, I like the fact you can just flash any droid in windows using RSDLite and an SBF of the version of your choice. Don't even need to root your phone to flash it.
Gimme a minute, I'll make a cool one....
