    Hi,
    According to the Android API for VideoView, it can load images (videos) from a content provider.
    Yet I can not find any examples of how to write a content provider that can do this.
    Can you point me to such an example?

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Thank you for the reply, but NO, there is nothing in that web site (book) that shows how to use VideoView with a Content Provider. The VideoView example sets the video path to an mp4 file on the web.

    Alright, try this: Play Video File - Android Example

    Also, I found you on StackExchange Someone replied to your question.

    Thanks again, but again that is not a content provider. That code is playing a video file that is a resource in the project.

    *Snaps fingers* Dang it. I'll see if I can get someone else to help. I am not experienced in Android API's or Android App Development in General. Too bad it's not Visual Basic!
