                int what,

mp MediaPlayer: the MediaPlayer the error pertains to

what int: the type of error that has occurred:

boolean True if the method handled the error, false if it didn't. Returning false, or not having an OnErrorListener at all, will cause the OnCompletionListener to be called.
