    Play big mp3 files

    Hi all,

    Is it possible to play a big mp3 file without using jsr75, I mean FileConnection API?

    The problem is that I don't know how many devices support that JSR (any link about it would be appreciated), and I would like to create my application the most portable possible.

    Couple of notes.
    You need to have FileConnection API supported in order to be able to read files from the phone's file system. Otherwise you can only play files distributed inside the JAR file or downloaded from the Web.

    On many phones the audio file is first read to memory and then played from there, which effectively puts a limit to the file size.

    check also the MMAPI implementation notes in Java ME Developer's Guide

    its not possible to play files using j2me without jsr 75.
    Its painful to have music files in the jar. Since some devices doesnt support unlimited jar size.
