Android: Display current track Info in mediaplayer using webpage

I am a learner and developing an Android App to play live stream. It is working properly except 1 issue. I want to show title of currently playing Track which is available on a webpge. For this purpose I have used a textView and tried to use Asynchronous Task and called a method containing a Runnable in that Asynchronous task with which I can update text of textView at an interval on 30 seconds.In runnable I called a method which loads a webpage and give its content as a string.

Problem: When it tries to update text of textView, app crashes. THANKS IN ADVANCE.

Following is my code:

Answer

I got it.

I have used a TimeTask, which calls a method UpdateGUI(); in every 10 Seconds. This method "UpdateGUI();" further calls a method "getHTML();" which load webpage's content to String text. Also this method calls myRunnable via myHandler at

myHandler.post(myRunnable);

and myRunnable set the text of textView txtMessage
