    Playing Youtube videos in Java Apps

    Hi,

    I would appreciate some help and pointers on how to play youtube videos from a Java ME application.

    What minimum MIDP is required? What JSR are required?

    Thanks,

    Christelle

    You could use platformRequest() to launch the browser with a YouTube URL, though, but other than that, I don't think there're any good solutions.

    As probably no device has a suitable video codec for Java, if you wish to "embed" the YouTube video in your Java application, you would have to write your own vide decoder entirely in Java to get it to work (either Flash Video or HTML5). I don't think it'd be very practical (it'll most probably be too slow to be usable even if you manage to do it).

    Just check if the target device browser is able to play the youTube vidoes, you can try the platformReqest() passing its URL to play in Browser as Petrib suggested.
