Excercise: Downloading and playing of a video

Program an application that downloads a video from the internet (from a certain URL)
and open the video for playing. (video is in *.3gp format)

 

1. Create an application menu with 1 item called "get video" to choose.

 

2. Create a function called fetching. Use the url.retrieve function that
is provided through the urllib module to download the video file from the
Internet and store it on your mobile's c: drive.

import urllib

urllib.urlretrieve(url, tempfile)

 

3. Use the content handler to open the video ready for playing.

content_handler.open(tempfile)
