How to play .mp4 video in videoview in android?

I am working on a video player application, I want to play .mp4 video in the native video view. I am not able to play video using a URL. I am getting the error “Sorry this video cannot be played” and I am also not able to play downloaded video in the native video view either.

My code for playing video in the video view:

String mUrl = "http://www.servername.com/projects/projectname/videos/1361439400.mp4";
VideoView mVideoView = (VideoView)findViewById(R.id.videoview)
videoMediaController = new MediaController(this);
mVideoView.setVideoPath(mUrl);
videoMediaController.setMediaPlayer(mVideoView);
mVideoView.setMediaController(videoMediaController);
mVideoView.requestFocus();
mVideoView.start();

Finally it works for me.

private VideoView videoView;
videoView = (VideoView) findViewById(R.id.videoView);
Uri video = Uri.parse("http://www.servername.com/projects/projectname/videos/1361439400.mp4");
videoView.setVideoURI(video);
videoView.setOnPreparedListener(new MediaPlayer.OnPreparedListener() {
@Override
public void onPrepared(MediaPlayer mp) {
mp.setLooping(true);
videoView.start();
}
});
