    MMAPI File Locator Syntax

    Hi All,

    I need to use the file:// syntax for an MMAPI video playback application (so that I can get FramePositioningControl). Unfortunately, I can not figure out the syntax to load a video file from the JAR file using it..

    Any advice?

    I have tried:

    mPlayer = Manager.createPlayer("file://videofile.3gp");
    mPlayer = Manager.createPlayer("file:///videofile.3gp");
    mPlayer = Manager.createPlayer("/videofile.3gp");
    mPlayer = Manager.createPlayer("videofile.3gp");

    Thanks

    Re: MMAPI File Locator Syntax

    Here i am providing you both synatx.

    public static Player createPlayer(String locator);//File Locaor as your requirement



    public static Player createPlayer(InputStream stream, String type);


    the following is one example for it.

    InputStream in = getClass().getResourceAsStream("/fish.mpg");
    mPlayer = Manager.createPlayer(in, "video/mpeg");a

    Re: MMAPI File Locator Syntax

    The getResourceAsStream won't work for me as I need to use a "file://" locator to get the FramePositioningControl to work.

    I am looking for the specific locator syntax for "file://" for getting a file out of a JAR

    Should be something like: Manager.createPlayer("file://blah.3gp");

    Re: MMAPI File Locator Syntax

    Thanks..

    Guess I was unclear previously. I need to get access to a file that is bundled with the Jar as a resource. in other words, inside the jar.

    After digging for quite a while, it seems there isn't a means to get at a resource file in a Jar with the file:// locator syntax..

    I either have to use an existing file on the file system or utilize getResourceAsStream which prevents me from using some of the functionality I need in the MMAPI.

    Yep, getResourceAsStream is your only possibility here (getting the file from JAR resources).
