Display video from any particular folder

Hi, In this post ,I'm going to talk about how to display list of videos from any particular folder of devices.
So frist we will have to decide complete path of folder in which want to extract own data.
Now have a look about this code 
package com.dilip.finalvideo;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.List;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.util.Log;
import android.view.ContextMenu;
import android.view.ContextMenu.ContextMenuInfo;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.AdapterView;
import android.widget.AdapterView.OnItemClickListener;
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter;
import android.widget.ListView;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class FinalVideoActivity extends Activity {
     private List<String> item = new ArrayList<String>();
     private List<String> path = null;
     private String root="/data/jpgs";
     private TextView myPath;
ListView list;
        /** Called when the activity is first created. */
        public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
            System.out.println("upper main");
        System.out.println("below main");
        myPath = (TextView)findViewById(;
        System.out.println("I am in main");
        private void getDir(String dirPath)
        { System.out.println("I am in getDir");
        //String[] fileList=null;
        List<String> title=new ArrayList<String>();
        ArrayList<String> result=new ArrayList<String>();
        String[] fileList=null;
        File videoFiles = new File(root);

       for(int i=0;i<fileList.length;i++)
           Log.e("Video:"+i+" File name",fileList[i]);
       Log.d("Value of result", result.get(1));
       System.out.println("upper title");
        list.setAdapter(new ArrayAdapter<String>(this,android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1 ,fileList ));

         list.setOnItemClickListener(new OnItemClickListener(){

            public void onItemClick(AdapterView<?> arg0, View arg1, int arg2,long arg3) {
                // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                 registerForContextMenu( arg1 );
                 arg1.setLongClickable(false);  // undo setting of this flag in registerForContextMenu
                   // this.openContextMenu(arg1);

This code can display list of videos but it doesn't display video thumbnails.

Custom Volley-Gson request implementation

This page covers Volley-Gson integration and also Volley custom Request. We assume that, you are familiar with Volley and Gson.

Volley has some inbuilt request which you can use, if your response is a String, Image, or JSON, in that case, you don't need to implement a custom Request.  To use Gson with Volley, we need to implement a custom request.
To make a custom request, you need to perform following operation.
Extend Request<T> class, where T is the type of parsed response or expected response. Implement the abstract methods parseNetworkResponse() and deliverResponse().  parseNetworkResponse:  A response contains parse response of a given type i.e Gson.

    protected Response<T> parseNetworkResponse(NetworkResponse response) {
        try {
            String json = new String(
          , HttpHeaderParser.parseCharset(response.headers));
            if (BuildConfig.IS_DEBUG)
                Log.d(TAG, "Response :: " + …

Custom Android SeekBar Developement

Before starting coding for Custom SeekBar,You must have good concept of following topics. 1.Layer List 2.Animation List 3.Selector Layer List:A LayerDrawableis a drawable object that manages an array of other drawables. Each drawable in the list is drawn in the order of the list—the last drawable in the list is drawn on top.
<layer-listxmlns:android=""> <item android:id="@android:id/background" android:drawable="@drawable/seekbar_total"/> <itemandroid:id="@android:id/secondaryProgress"> <clipandroid:drawable="@drawable/seekbar_buffer"/> </item> <itemandroid:id="@android:id/progress"> <clipandroid:drawable="@drawable/seekbar_played"/> </item> </layer-list> Animation List:A AnimationDrawable is a drawable object that is used to create frame-by-frame animation.It's oneshotelement should be true if u want loop animation otherwise false.
