MediaDataSource

public abstract class MediaDataSource
extends Object implements Closeable

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.media.MediaDataSource


For supplying media data to the framework. Implement this if your app has special requirements for the way media data is obtained.

Methods of this interface may be called on multiple different threads. There will be a thread synchronization point between each call to ensure that modifications to the state of your MediaDataSource are visible to future calls. This means you don't need to do your own synchronization unless you're modifying the MediaDataSource from another thread while it's being used by the framework.
