MIDP 2.0 and Midi-support
Do anyone know if the new MIDP 2.0 update for the Series60-series will support Midi-files?
I really hope they will support more than the Ringtone- and the Wav-format, especially since the phones allready can play Polyphonic sounds (midi)
I haven't been able to download the Series 60 MIDP SDK Beta 0.3 yet, but I have tested other emulator-devices that support MIDP 2.0, and when I put in these two debug sentences:
for (int i=0;i<sounds.length;i++) System.out.println(sounds[i]);
I get the supported Content types, including the different sound-formats :)
.wav and .mid support issues
I have played around the sound features of MMAPIs in S60 SDK Beta 0.3, and observed some problems. It looks that the MMAPI is not powerful enough to decode all kinds of .wav and .mid data. I tried some sample sound data such as laser.wav and song.mid from Nokia's sample package, my midlet can play back them using MMAPI without any problem. But when I attempted to use the midlet to play some .wav and .mid I downloaded from some popular web sites, the emulator cannot handle the format and throw exceptions. Have you seen such problems?
