    Prefecting a player takes a long time. Why is that?

    Hi I'm using this code to download the video and play it on my phone. at the moment I'm testing it from WTK2.5.2 only. but the problem is player will created so quickly but when it is prefetching it takes a long time. Is there something wrong with my code but I guess there is nothing wrong . Oh and the url for the player would be http://www.onlnet.com/amila/v1.mpg .
    thanks in advance.
    and here is my code

    Thread t = new Thread() {
                    public void run() {
                        try {
                            form1 = null;
                            player1 = null;
                            vc1 = null;
                            videoDisp1 = null;
                            form1 = new Form("player1");
                            player1 = Manager.createPlayer(url);
                            System.out.println("player 1 created");
                            System.out.println("player 1 pre and rea");
                            vc1 = (VideoControl) player1.getControl("VideoControl");
                            videoDisp1 = (Item) vc1.initDisplayMode(vc1.USE_GUI_PRIMITIVE, null);
                        } catch (Exception e) {

    prefetching the player takes along time because its loading and buffering the data to run
    if u see the code the player is prefecthed then it is asked to play
    for further refrence you can see the transition state of the player that it goes through :-

    PREFETCHED, establishes network connections for streaming data, and performs other initialization tasks
    so it takes time
    and u can have alook on java API for Mobile Media
