Default XDA TV (Dark Edition) v1.2

XDA TV (Dark Edition) v1.2

Warning: If the app isn't working, just drop me an email or post the problem here, you don't need to rate the app with 1 star and comment like: "The app isn't working". Thanks for the support

Now you can have all the XDA TV videos wherever you go using this application. Now on your phone, if you have a tablet you should get it here, also you can get the "normal theme" version here.

As many of you have seen, the tablet application got an update, featuring a new feed(that is hosted on my own server), description text and a poster image for each video. I'm now working to bring all of this to the phone version, so stay tuned. Maybe later today it will be finished

I've been working on this for a week. Making the layout using HTML and CSS3 was easy, but I got a lot of problems while trying to make the code work on Android, so I took a bit more to match the code for Android. At the time I can't find another way to open up the videos without firing up the browser to redirect to the Video application, the OS has a lot of problems with HTML5 Video tag so I've done it like this.

The technologies used on this application:

Hi, don't know if this is just me but the app doesn't work for me. I get no response when i click on the icon. I am running a DHD with CM7 in case that helps. I'll give the normal verion a go now and see if that works.

EDIT: I uninstalled and installed the 'normal' phone version, i get a bit further: a black screen and then an application error "THe connection to the server was unsuccessful. (file:///android_asset/www/index.html)"

Hope that helps?

First Problem: I'm trying to solve this. Strangely PhoneGap is having bugs to work on some ROMs.

Second Problem: That means the app took too long to contact the server(usually because your connection is slow at the time). Just try again and it might work.

I've tested this on both and I had no problem with it on my Galaxy S, Droid and Touch Pro2(Froyo).

Thanks for looking into it, I seem to be having problems with the ' normal' phone version too. Let me know if there is anything you need to know, or if you want some testing done.

The "The connection to the server was unsuccessful. (file:///android_asset/www/index.html)" problem will be rolling out tomorrow, since it's a server fix and I'll only have time to do it tomorrow, this is happening because your connection might be slow and the app is trying to fetch the entire XDA TV library(all the episodes since the first one), which is causing timeouts. The solution will be to remove the very very old episodes, making the list smaller and reducing the problems with timeouts.

A new version of the app might come out later that will support reading the "old archive", which will be created tomorrow.


PS: I'm having tests this week on the university, plus I need to work, so I'm not having much time to develop

Just pushed the server-side fix. I'll be working to replace the black screen on the opening with a fancy splash screen
