    Is flash player/S60 missing support for parameters in fscommand method?

    I'm trying to develop a flash-app which launches realplayer and plays a rtsp-stream. I'm using a N95 (S60 3rd Edition V12.0.013).

    To start realplayer from the swf I'm using:

    fscommand("Launch", "Z:\\sys\\bin\\MediaPlayer.exe");

    This works just fine and realplayer launches.

    However, when I try to add parameters to the string, it stops working and nothing happens when I run the code. I.e. the following doesn't work:

    fscommand("Launch", "Z:\\sys\\bin\\MediaPlayer.exe,rtsp://path/to/streamingserver.3gp");

    I've also tried starting the web-browser with a url as parameter with no luck.

    Am I doing something wrong, or is Symbian simply lacking support for parameters in fscommand?

    Any help on this would be VERY much appreciated!

    have you tried using getURL()?

    I have tried using getURL. This does indeed open the media player, but it does it by first starting up the web browser and then realplayer. This is problematic when running the flash-app in stand-alone mode (as intended) because when the user has finished watching the movie and closes the media player, he or she is returned to an empty web-page and not to the flash-app.

    Re: Is flash player/S60 missing support for parameters in fscommand method?

    there may be some way to do this using a Flash helper Symbian application like

    Janus Symbian - http://www.spaghettisort.com/janus/p...s-symbian.html
    Kuneri Lite - http://www.kunerilite.net/

    If you are developing for Flash Lite 2.0, then you can use video object to play the .3gp video directly within the SWF presentation. It can also support rtsp protocol. Device video support for Flash Lite s60 should interface directly with the Real Media player for .3gp playback. The Real Media Player video object display box appears to be part of the Flash presentation, but actually is in a level on top of all Flash content.

    The problem with embedding the video object inside the flash-app is that (as far as I can tell) you have no means to control the scale or rotation of the movie being displayed. For example you cannot view video in full-screen mode, and it will always be scaled at 100% (ie the size in which it was encoded).

    Thank you very much for the links though - those apps seem to offer a lot of nice features I've been looking for. I'll try them out as soon as I have the time.

    Did you try this?

    Code:
    fscommand("Launch", "MediaPlayer.exe, rtsp://path/to/streamingserver.3gp");
