If you're just starting out I would leave Android out of it for now. Get it going in a Java desktop app, and once you have the mechanics of hiding/recovering working, then embed it in an Android app. It's easier to get going with a desktop app than messing around with Android emulators/devices.

I would advise to use still images, not music or video which are harder to manipulate. For a school project, that should be perfectly acceptable.

And I bet you'll find a lot more results by searching for "java steganography" than for "android steganography" :-)

I know how Steganography works and how to implement.
But just wanted to ask, why you need that kind of application. And where and how you are going to use this?
Steganography can be misused, thats why I am asking?

All technology is dual-use, as it can always be used for good and evil. I can use a kitchen knife to kill someone, and use modern encryption to keep my diary where I chronicle that deed secret. Steganography is no different.
