I am currently working on a project that uses Manager.createPlayer(InputStream is, String mimeType) to create an audio player.
The audio player works perfectly on the emulator. On a Nokia C3 it is able to play an audio/mpeg track after the app starts, but fails when an attempt is made to play the same/other audio again. On prefetch a message, "failed to fetch media data" is caught.
When opening the player for the first time it is taken through the normal lifecycle: realize,prefetch,start.
After the track is finished it is: stopped,deallocated,closed . The player is even set to null, before the process is repeated for another audio track.
