    Re: Playing video file


    to play video files you need to use MMAPI: take a look at Java ME Developer's Library for useful infos and sample code.

    About playing local video files: if you need to browse local folders, you'll need FileConnection API. Also, "fileconn.dir.videos" System property would be useful to retrieve default video folder path.

    About streaming videos: you should check if streaming protocol is supported on target devices, and you can easily do it by using Manager's getSupportedProtocols() method.

    Also, take a look at this sample from Forum Nokia Wiki:


    Hope it helps,
