Is there a way to play audio obtained from MediaStore through the use of the MediaPLayer, Or am I going in the completely wrong direction? I've looked and MediaStore.Audio so far but nothing is really helping me. I just need to know if I'm on the right track
First, I assume you have basic knowledge of querying a ContentProvider and working with Cursors. If you dont, I suggest you research it here
Once you have a basic knowledge of how to use a ContentProvider, query the URI
MediaStore.Audio.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI for the column
Audio.Media.DATA, along with any other fields you need.
Let's say you put the returned cursor in
String path = yourCursor.getString(getColumnIndex(Audio.Media.DATA)); MediaPlayer mp = new MediaPlayer(); mp.setDataSource(path); mp.prepare(); mp.start();
That's a very basic implementation. Get comfy with the android docs if you need to get fancy with it.
