Questions:

I am trying to develop own video player that supports HLS(http live streaming) from 2.1.

I have tried vitamio but it requires that we install vitamio plugin which is around 3.2 MB.So trying to develop own video player.

I have been searching android source code to check how m3u8 file format is being supported on 3.0 onwards but have been unsuccessful so far.

It would be helpful if someone points me in the right direction. What classes do I have to check?

How to&Answers:

VLC Supports HLS but just barely. There is a product called NexPlayer which supported HLS all the way down to 1.6, but its paid only.
