MediaPlayer stutters at start of mp3 playback in android


     A Local HTTP Streaming Server (LocalHTTPServer) for Android. This version was specifically made to stream encrypted MP3 files using a CipherInputStream to MediaPlayer but should be easily modified to work on ordinary files. It has been tested on API 9+ and works fine on large files (tested on up to 20MB files).

 Here is the simple example,


import java.io.BufferedOutputStream;
import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.OutputStream;
import java.net.InetAddress;
import java.net.ServerSocket;
import java.net.Socket;
import java.net.SocketException;
import java.net.SocketTimeoutException;
import java.net.UnknownHostException;
import android.os.AsyncTask;
import android.os.Looper;
import android.util.Log;

public class StreamProxy implements Runnable {

    private static final int SERVER_PORT=8888;

    private Thread thread;
    private boolean isRunning;
    private ServerSocket socket;
    private int port;

    public StreamProxy() {

        // Create listening socket
        try {
          socket = new ServerSocket(SERVER_PORT, 0, InetAddress.getByAddress(new byte[] {127,0,0,1}));
          socket.setSoTimeout(5000);
          port = socket.getLocalPort();
        } catch (UnknownHostException e) { // impossible
        } catch (IOException e) {
          Log.e(TAG, "IOException initializing server", e);
        }

    }

    public void start() {
        thread = new Thread(this);
        thread.start();
    }

    public void stop() {
        isRunning = false;
        thread.interrupt();
        try {
            thread.join(5000);
        } catch (InterruptedException e) {
          e.printStackTrace();
        }
    }

    @Override

            }
            Log.d(TAG, "client connected");

            StreamToMediaPlayerTask task = new StreamToMediaPlayerTask(client);
            if (task.processRequest()) {
                task.execute();
            }

          } catch (SocketTimeoutException e) {
            // Do nothing
          } catch (IOException e) {

        }

        public boolean processRequest() {
            // Read HTTP headers
            String headers = "";
            try {
              headers = Utils.readTextStreamAvailable(client.getInputStream());
            } catch (IOException e) {

Enjoy and make app appropriate for you desire.
Happy Coding!!!
