    App crashes after 2 videos

    Hey Guys

    I have finally managed to build the video streaming app, which works OK. I have 2 issues,

    1. The downloaded video is stored to temp/media folder, which my client does not want
    2. After watching 2 videos, at the third video the app is stuck, and crashes

    I am not sure how to approach my 2nd issue, but have some sort of an idea on 1. I am hoping, I can delete the temp file when the user watches video and goes back to the play screen or when the user exits the app in the destroyApp()

    For the 2nd problem Im facing, I understand that it is because it is eating up the RAM, but not sure how to attack it,

    The video size is about 350K average, some are 200 K, some are 400K, but not more.

    If someone can give me pointers, that would be most helpful.

    Also, if my approach is wrong (as mentioned above) please give me the right direction, I will be happy to learn.

    When the app crashes, does it give a meaningful error message to you?

    Did you closed the player of the previous 2 videos?

    Hi oniongarlic,
    No, I do not get any message while the app crashes, The problem here is that the app is not crashing, it crashes the phone, so after two videos, when I load the third video, it plays for about 3 seconds without sound and hangs there, any action from then, restarts the phone.

    Dear Shai.i,
    Thanks for the inputs, on backCommanded, this is what I am doing:

    if (player != null) {

    Hey All,

    I have fixed this issue, as mentioned in my original post, issue 1 lead to issue 2. I wrote a cleaning module to clean the deallocated memory and remove unwanted files and it works like a charm.

    Oniongarlic and Shai.i, Thanks much for your inputs.
