He is trying to solve the streaming problem from a server, as in the file is not on your device..
So because MediaPlayer used not to be able to stream it would first download the whole file and then play it, so it could take a whole lotta time before the playing actually started...
Nowadays MediaPlayers streams MP3's from web-servers, even though it's very very very picky about the format...
Just have a look when this Thread was started, and with which Android Version
Also, is it certain that an incomplete track can be played on MediaPlayer? doesnt the .mp3 have to be fully downloaded in order to play it?
