Android Market Developer Console

It would be great if the Android Developer Concole:

  • was updated in real-time
  • generated graphs for downloads/active installs/crash reports/ratings
  • if crash reports included the Android version the report came from
  • what percentage of installs are on what type of device
Sep052010 Video support

Finally got some success in stripping the FLV (Flash video) container from the h.264 stream in order to translate it into something that the Android media player can understand. Turns out the difficulties I was encountering appear to have been due to buffer under runs. The FLV striping code was running out of video/audio packets to pull from the Flash video stream.  The resulting file wasn't playable by VLC so I don't think the Android media player will have better luck. So what I have to do now is write the video stream out into something that the Android media player can understand.


TWiT v0.65 Released

Just uploaded an updated version to correct the NullPointerException that had caused the previously discussed crash report.

Work on "Plan A" to allow playback of the video stream continues but is not at a testable stage yet. Hopefully the weekend will allow the start of some testing of video playback.


First Crash Report!

A feature of the Android Market that I didn't know about prior to publishing the TWiT app is that it collects crash reports! I got my first report, a NullPointerException, that occurred when the user pressed the stop button without having previously pressed the start button. An assumption on my part that I had overlooked. I love the Android Platform!

It should go without saying that this bug will be corrected in the next release. In fact that piece of code had already gone under quite a lot of changes.


TWiT v0.6 Released

After a couple of weeks of part time development I released the TWiT app as it currently exists on Aug 30th. It's able to stream the audio feed as a service, participate in the IRC chat and display the show calendar with the appropriate timezone of the phone. The app can not currently play the video stream but I have some ideas on how to proceed with that, I hope that I don't have to port FFmpeg w/ x264 to do it as that would force me to release TWiT under the GPL.
