    Re: streaming video from a http server

    HTTP is not intended for streaming, you may want to opt for RTSP/RTP. If for some reason you still need to use http, you can check the intenet radio project for some ideas: http://opensource.nokia.com/projects...dio/index.html

    Re: streaming video from a http server

    as already said, rtsp/rtp is better ... but to add..

    well the internet radio is a good example using sockets, the same cud also be achieved using the basic http client example from sdk.

    if you give it the server link and start getting the body of the data, u could manage to put it to the player...

    this way you could very fast verify the possibilities of the solution..

    hope this helps !

    Hi,
    not sure if you mean http streaming from a mobile phone.
    Anyway http streaming is possible in different manner using flash and php or java.

    VideoVista http://www.vista.it can do that in easy way.

    Livevista on the other side, can do it from your PC using a http server.

    I apologize if my reply could be out of topic.

    regards

    Unhappy Re: streaming video from a http server

    Hi,

    Open source internet Radio uses http streaming using shoutcast protocol. But this player is typically for only audio.

    For video streaming you can use CVideoPlayerUtility class.

    But one thing I observed was that as such there is rtp/rtsp support, rtsp streaming and playing is supported but not the http.

    For http streaming you have to write your own http network client [typical for the type of server eg. for nsv server] and various players for format [mpeg4 etc] which you are going to support. [Basically something similiar to open source internet radio but for video streaming has to be written.] For such player I felt that there is limited support, so please check the CVideoPlayerUtility and find support available.

    Creating a video streaming application for rtsp will much easier than the http

    Re: streaming video from a http server

    you can use this as a property in jad file:

    "progressive_download: enabled"

    and use basic player and give it the link, it will stream the music, provided the phone supports progressive, which almost all the latest phones released in the past 1 year support !
