As I have not got any reply I need to stress this problem a little.
I tried to use HTML 5 Video Tag whhich is completely broken on Android build.
I tried any of the cordova-plugin-media-streaming which do not work either.
I tried to stream videos with jPlayer as jQuery extension, which is not working too.
So dear phonegap community, I am sure that some of you have used video streaming with phonegap. How to do this?
I'd suggest using the Crosswalk plugin on Android, which should smooth out the HTML5 video issues on Android. It would also help to see the code you've tried that isn't working (and be more specific as to how each one is broken).
Phonegap is not able to install Crosswalk with current Android Version:
--- from Phonegap Log ---
Installing "cordova-plugin-crosswalk-webview" at "2.2.0" for android
Plugin doesn't support this project's cordova-android version. cordova-android: 5.2.1, failed version requirement: >=6
Skipping 'cordova-plugin-crosswalk-webview' for android
The current cordova-android version is 6.1.0, although I believe 6.0 is currently pinned by default. Try upgrading your cordova-android platform and then try again.
I am confused
I was building all the time without having a specific Android platform installed. The only platform that is installed is the browser. So what exactly is the cordova-android version? Shouldn't be it server side while phonegap build process?
To make it short: How can I update my cordova-android version/platform?
(Installing android platform with "cordova platform add android" has not helped)
Since you're referring to PhoneGap Build, I moved it to that forum.
See Adobe PhoneGap Build for the PGB CLI versions and respective platform versions. At the bottom of the page is an example snippet for inclusion into your config.xml so that you can tell PGB which version to use.
However, since you're using PGB, you'll need a different Crosswalk plugin, since the one you're using will generate two APKs (x86 & ARM), and PGB only supports downloading one. With that plugin, it's a tossup as to which one you'll get. Instead, use an architecture-specific Crosswalk plugin (Plugin Search - Apache Cordova ).
