    Angry Open RTSP link

    I've been able to open an rtsp link with the widget.openApplication(browserUID,rtspLink) in Symbian3 devices, but when the video finishes the white browser is in focus and not my widget, so the user has to close the browser to get back to the app.

    Is there a way to jump past that white paged browser directly to the player or close automatically that window so user can go back to the app??

    The function widget.openApplication(realUID,rtspLink) is not working for me.

    Thanks,

    Pamela

    Hi,

    One way to avoid the totally white screen is to use your own web page as a mediator as follows:

    mypage.html
    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function openStream(){
    	setTimeout(redirect,500);	
    }
    function redirect(){
    	document.getElementById("header").innerHTML ="You can close this page";
    	window.location = "your_stream_URL_here";
            setTimeout(window.close,2000); // seems to work, but not tested troughout
    }
    </script>
    </head>
    <body onload="openStream();">
    	<h3 id="header">Loading...</h3>
    </body>
    </html>
    Widet side:
    Code:
    widget.openApplication(0x10008d39,'http://www.myserver.ext/mypage.html');
    It is not perfect solution, but UX wise it is better than just to have the empty screen.
    Probably you want to pass the stream as a parameter to your site, but the logic stays the same.
