Sometimes developer may need to use MediaPlayer directly instead of using VideoView.
In this case, developer should keep belows in his/her mind.
<NOTE : Gingerbread and ICS are a little different (ICS is more flexible. But, the more strict is the better.>
- setDisplay Should be called after surface of SurfaceHolder is created.
- video should be started after it's video size is known (after onVideoSizeChanged is called.)
- setDisplay() should be called before prepare()
Let's summarize it.
onSurfaceCreate -> setDisplay() -> prepare()/prepareAsync()
=> Now, MediaPlayer is fully prepared to be started.
