Can someone tell me how does the imdb app manage to play trailers on android. I know we can play 3 gp but then it is of very low quality.I would want to play videos from youtube or other sources without using a webview I am not sure if this question belongs here but it would be great if you could point me in the right direction
Check out this project for playing Youtube video: android-youtube-player
You can easily modify OpenYouTubePlayerActivity to play other the streaming url´s aswell.
You can also play/stream mp4 video.
Yes, you able to play video via url by using videoView controll. Thanks
