Sorry to disturb, but does this:
>    <data android:mimeType="video/*" android:scheme="mms" />
mean that it will be possible to watch LIVE/VOD content comming from a
Windows Media Streaming streaming server with VLC Android?

It will likely not be true "MMS" but either HTTP, RTSP T or U. So
mms:// is just a place holder to tell the player: "try the various
possible protocol to see what works because you might be behind a
firewall or something".

In that case, how is it possible to test that feature because I would
like to evaluate how VLC on android work with:
* Multiple video bitrate content (the desktop version of VLC open one
window per available video track.
* Multiple audio bitrate content (the desktop version of VLC support
that and there is a GUI and a preference to select the language)

I have already some alpha version of VLC for Android, but if there is
an "official" beta testing channel, I would love to test on that kind
of special content.
