    Question MediaException N93

    I´m trying to capture Video AND Audio fro the Nokia N93 cam.
    The code-line:

    p = Manager.createPlayer("capture://audio_video");

    throws a MediaException on my Nokia N93 "Unable to create Player with locator: capture://audio_video"

    What´s the reason?

    Thanks for help, Lichtens

    Re: MediaException N93

    The locator you are using is invalid.

    Recording sound and video
    Sound and video recording can be done by using RecordControl. On the S60 platform, sound and video
    recording is supported from 2nd Edition onwards. Series 40 platform supports sound recording from 3rd
    Edition, FP1 onwards. You can check the support by using the following system properties:
    • supports.audio.capture - for audio recording
    • supports.video.capture - for video recording
    These properties return true if recording is supported.
    When creating a Player for audio or video capture, or specific capture, the locator URL must be used as a
    parameter to the createPlayer method of the Manager class. The following code line creates a
    Player instance for audio capture:
    Player p = Manager.createPlayer("capture://audio");
    Camera snapshot for pictures or video recording use the following locators:
    • Series 40 platform:
    • capture://image (for photo capture)
    • capture://video (for video recording)
    • S60 platform:
    • capture://video (for video recording and image capture)
    • capture://devcam0 (for video recording and image capture)
    • capture://devcam1 (second camera, if the device has two cameras)
    • Audio capture locator:
    • capture://audio
    You can also define the exact recorded media type to the locator URL. The supported parameters vary
    between platforms and devices. Note that SDKs might not support capture features at all, so testing should
    be done with the actual mobile devices. For further details about recording, check the Mobile Media API

    Ok, i see. Thank you for help.
    I have a question left.
    On the documentation of the jsr-135 (sun) the locator audio_video ist possible for video and audi capture with just one Player-Instance.
    Ist this different on nokia-phones or on series 60 phones?

    Next question: How do I manage to record video and audio-stream in one targetfile, when I have two instances of the Player.
