Public Methods

public void play (Context context, Uri uri, boolean looping, int stream)

Since: API Level 1

Start playing the sound. It will actually start playing at some point in the future. There are no guarantees about latency here. Calling this before another audio file is done playing will stop that one and start the new one.

context Your application's context.
uri The URI to play. (see setDataSource(Context, Uri))
looping Whether the audio should loop forever. (see setLooping(boolean))
stream the AudioStream to use. (see setAudioStreamType(int))

public void stop ()

Since: API Level 1

Stop a previously played sound. It can't be played again or unpaused at this point. Calling this multiple times has no ill effects.
