Hello everyone. I've been trying to figure out how to use the MediaRecorder API, and after a lot of research have come up with nothing. The code on Google's site doesn't work all the way because it is missing some pieces. And general searching has come empty to. I've seen enough about it working, but actual code to support it. Can any one give me a hand. I just need a basic working example to expand off of.

Thanks a bunch

Approach for porting Notifications to Toasts in MusicDroid...


Look at this example of notification in MusicDroid

String notifyText = artist + " - " + song;

Notification notification = new Notification(
R.drawable.playbackstart, notifyText, null, notifyText, null);
nm.notify(NOTIFY_ID, notification);

According to the porting notes, notifications are now Toasts. Great, but MusicDroid used funky drawable elements such as the play and pause images (R.drawable.playbackstart for example above)

Does anyone have an approach for using images in Toasts or instead of notifications do we now have to use two methods to get the same effect in M5?

Accessing GoogleCalendar with SDK M5-RC15

Hi everyone,

I am trying to access the Google Calendar. I found an example at

The author is accessing the Calendar via the CalendarClient. He's even authorizing the user with CalendarClient#getAuthToken(String, String). But this Method seems to be eliminated in the SDK M5-RC15.

Has anyone an idea how to access the Google Calendar?

Video Player Example

If someone could provide me with all the code and XML for a extremely basic video player(no buttons, just playing an external .3gp file) that would be great.
