    I have managed to modify the dataprovider.js file but all the videos seem to be populating in a random order. Would a developer please shine some light on this for me. I am using HTML5 template 1.

    Best regards,

    Chris Lognion

    Forget about it. Develop native Android apps. :)

    Really??? What would be the simplest solution to develop a video based android app that would also work with Google TV?

    Google has sample video app sources on GTV's google code page.
    Download the latest Android SDK, and if you have a Google TV device, you are ready to start. If you haven't one yet, you will need a linux machine to run the emulator.
    I am not able to post links... samples and all info is here: code google com/intl/ru/tv/android/

    Fixed your link. Though, I'm going to guess he would want the localized version at http://code.google.com/tv/android/ And stop picking on web developers, just because you can program a pretty damn good video player doesn't mean he can.

    I have nothing against web developers, really. :cool:
    But I really think, that web apps for GTV have no future. Look at Google! They tried to make a web-based Youtube app, but failed and finally created Android one.

    I think if a web app was made correctly then it doesn't need be developed with the Android SDK. In fact, it was coded properly then it could be used by many more platforms. However, I haven't seen anyone actually create a good one yet.

    It has some limitations though. No access to data or services on the device other than what the browser offers, no possibility to use standard Android UI features like menus, Action Bar etc. If all this is not an issue, going via HTML 5 is a good option though, which give you access to Apple users as well...
