    Cannot stream using Nokia E61

    Hello all.
    I am having some problems streaming with a Nokia E61. I have a nice application that connects to a Darwin server and gets a reply as: rtsp://IP:554/file.3gp and it is supposed to play the video. I tried it on several phones, not Nokia and it worked perfectly. On Nokia i get a prefetch error -34 whenever i try a streaming link like that.

    Any ideas anyone?

    PS i made a firmware update and still no luck. It seems that only nokia has this problem. I also added the middlet permissions :
    javax.microedition.io.Connector.datagram,javax.microedition.io.Connector.datagramreceiver

    and still nothing.
    Please help if you ran into the same problem.

    The player is plain simple:
    create(url);
    realize();
    start();

    Streaming on MIDlets on S60 phones use the RealPlayer APN. That has to be defined before you can stream the content. Also the stream might be too big - have your tried with narrower stream?
    Can you access the stream using the built in RealPlayer?

    I second Hartti here. I have plenty of experience with streaming on J2ME and think you should check:

    1) Real player APN -> NO WAP APN, only Internet
    2) Can you see the stream using Real Player?
    3) Check the streaming size, 176x144 ideal.

    Then everything should work.

    Re: Cannot stream using Nokia E61

    First of all thank you very much for you reply guys.

    First my Real player gets the name of the media file and the length but then gets stuck without playing anything even though i have the correct Internet over 3G settings.
    I have Vodafone and the APN is the default mobile internet settings.
    It gets stuck in loading.

    Then on other phones the same setting of Internet access point works.

    BTW. the size is 176x144 , i think it is correct.

    You say that if i make the real player work then i will be able to stream from the middlet.


    I was thinking of something else. I am using Darwin, and the middlet throws -34 which means CANNOT CONNECT. SHould there be any special permission settings for darwin and Nokia S60??

    It is very strange that the real player gets all the media file info: length, bitrate,...

    I am thinking of a darwin missconfiguration ?!

    Anyone has experience in this?

    Guys, I made it work on a N95 and N73.

    I think that my E61 is broken somehow because the real player fails to play the stream even if it gets the media file info.

    I think that the Internet settings are wrong somehow, even though browsing works...
