The player will take care of streaming if you are using RTSP url.

 

For HTTP url, you have to download the video file to the mobile, after that you can play it.

Re: video player

In RTSP Site,there will be transfer of data streams between the site and the player and the player will handle the data flow between the site and player,

 

but in Http transfer of data will be total,it will not be based on the player ,you have to handle the data that flows into the player,

 

It will take time to download the entire video file and play it.

 

I am not clear of downloading the part of the video file and start playing.But anyway when you are playing the downloading file,you have handle the data flow,Which is  a tough option
