I am working on a media player for android.
I know that a thread should constantly run in order to take the current position of the audio.

String file = audioFile.getAbsolutePath();
 if (last_pos > 0) {

 // the media could be just prepared.
 if (media.isAutoPlay()) {
 mp.setOnPreparedListener(new OnPreparedListener() {
	public void onPrepared(final MediaPlayer mp) {
		mHandler.post(new Runnable() {
			public void run() {
				int position;
				int duration = mp.getDuration();
				do {
					try {
						position = mp.getCurrentPosition();
					} catch (Exception ex) { 
				} while (mp.isPlaying() && position <= duration); 

Open in new window

any ideas?
