Android Question

Get the progress time of the video played under videoview?

I need to get the progress time of the video that is played in "VideoView"(ie the time shown in the left hand side in progress bar).

Any help will really be appreciated.
Thanks.

Answer

You can get the Duration of the Video by mVideoView.getDuration(), set the Progress bar to 0 initially and then get the currentProgress of Video by mVideoView.getCurrentPosition(); and increase the Progress Bar status based on the CurrentProgress of Video in Percentage(%) by (current * 100 / duration). I tried it out using AsyncTask checkout this complete Example.

main.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    >
<VideoView  android:id="@+id/my_Video_View"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent" 
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
    android:text="@string/hello"
    />

    <ProgressBar android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"
  style="@android:style/Widget.ProgressBar.Horizontal"
  android:layout_width="fill_parent"
  android:layout_height="10dp"
  android:id="@+id/Progressbar"/>
</RelativeLayout>

VideoPlayActivity.java

public class VideoPlayActivity extends Activity {

    ProgressBar mProgressBar;
    VideoView mVideoView;
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.main);
        String path = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().toString();
        String filename = "/hr.3gp";

        mProgressBar = (ProgressBar) findViewById(R.id.Progressbar);
        mProgressBar.setProgress(0);
        mProgressBar.setMax(100);

        mVideoView = (VideoView) findViewById(R.id.my_Video_View);
        mVideoView.setVideoURI(Uri.parse(path+filename));
        new MyAsync().execute();
    }

    private class MyAsync extends AsyncTask<Void, Integer, Void>
    {
        int duration = 0;
        int current = 0;
        @Override
        protected Void doInBackground(Void... params) {

            mVideoView.start();
            mVideoView.setOnPreparedListener(new OnPreparedListener() {

                public void onPrepared(MediaPlayer mp) {
                    duration = mVideoView.getDuration();
                }
            });

            do {
                current = mVideoView.getCurrentPosition();
                System.out.println("duration - " + duration + " current- "
                        + current);
                try {
                    publishProgress((int) (current * 100 / duration));
                    if(mProgressBar.getProgress() >= 100){
                        break;
                    }
                } catch (Exception e) {
                }
            } while (mProgressBar.getProgress() <= 100);

            return null;
        }

        @Override
        protected void onProgressUpdate(Integer... values) {
            super.onProgressUpdate(values);
            System.out.println(values[0]);
            mProgressBar.setProgress(values[0]);
        }
    }
}
