    Jericho Mediacenter for FL3

    hi,

    i finshed my flash lite mediacenter (release name: jericho)
    for fl3 (its an early bird).

    if you want you can download the fl3 swf for testing
    the app on real fl3 compatible handies or device central
    or with the fl3 labs developer editon.

    the app was developed on the n95, black. i dont know
    if its working on other devices. the device emulator
    is not showing the results as it was shown on the n95.

    hope to get some feedback from you developers and start some discussions

    hi,

    very nice application. i tested on my N95, works well.

    two suggestions:

    1. keep the backlight on using fscommand and setInterval when video is playing. and clearInterval when video is stopped, or if user in app's menu.

    2. use the softkeys for back/exit option and action/center key for landscape/portrait mode switching for phone who don't have dual slid option

    best,

    Ciao Gary,

    looks really cool. Faisal suggestions are good. Always give the user clear choices on the soft buttons.
    Also I wanted to know if you would like to join the Boston User Group: www.flashmobilegroup.org.

    hi alessandro,

    i will joing the flashmobilegroup.org, of course

    i tried to use the softkeys, but when i use it on the n95 ("soft1") the button always opens the flash menu dialog with
    the flashlite player options and settings. i dont have this this with the emu.

    can you confirm this?

    there are so many changes between local developing in device central and on the real n95.

    the landscape modus for example was not initliaze by my application. the n95 automaticly rotates the hole movie when a videostream opens.

    for fixing it, i add all classes in a "coreclass" and after getting the onResize event handler, i adjust every screen, btns, mc, etc to this new modus. spend 1 days only for resizing functions

    i posted before some days ago this to nokia and adobe and i really hope that they will fix it. i know that they known these bugs.

    i have alot to fix. maybe another interesting thing for you developers is that i found out if you use rtmp, or http equal wich connection port, i had no problem here in germany with mobile networks.

    i tested e-plus,vodafone and t-mobile.

    the reason why i told you this is that my e-plus provider where i have a dataflate rate blocks special rtsp services.

    so i think that the providers content firewalls are not able to detect the rtmp-packets, wich is very nice for us

    only some test results.

    sorry for my english, i will visit bable for learning this international spoken language.

    i would like to see some more applications that you guys are developing. we must power flash lite 3 i cant see the boring real-player anymore in phones.

    let me know if you any questions.

    best

    Ciao Gary,

    just reset the soft buttons:
    fscommand2("SetSoftKeys", "", "");

    This way you have control on how to use the soft buttons.

    Re: Jericho Mediacenter for FL3

    Hello,

    gary, this is very interesting.

    We've recently started our flash lite 3 development and are also working on a video player. We've tried Adobe FMS2 and Red5. We are experiencing lag and framedrops with all of those when streaming in RTMP mode to the Nokia N95.

    We are going to try Wowzaa Media Server next, but still haven't found a solution for a stable video stream yet.

    Your demo seems to work pretty good. Can you tell us, how you are streaming those videos to flash lite 3 without lag?

    Thank you in advance. Looking forward to your answer.

    hi steve,

    its not so easy to say what the problem with our application can be without seeing code, examples etc. hope you understand.

    one problem with fullduplex data transmission with mobils is when you send and recieve packets at the same time, you get interrupt by the stream itself. so you have to find a way where you can handle this interruption.

    i dont know what you know about streaming protocols?!

    i know about red5, but never tried it because iam not that java guru as the red5 developers. i also know about fms. in our demo we use our own server, called vcs. the reason why we develop this app was that we wanted a server that not only can handle flash streaming. silverlight, ps3 and the iphone is also very interesting, or?

    i will not spam this forum with vcs marketing details, if you like you can contact us over our contact form, onlinelib.de/contact.

    i would like to see our app that you have developed. maybe you post a link?
