    Downloading 3gp video over WAP - Status Codes 406


    I have a problem with setting up a WML Deck that allows the download of 3gp video. I created a 3gp file using the Nokia 6600 and uploaded it to my site.

    I then created a WML Deck to allow a download link to the 3gp file in asp.

    'send the right MIME type
    Response.ContentType = "text/vnd.wap.wml"

    'disable caching of this deck
    Response.Expires = -1
    Response.AddHeader "Pragma", "no-cache"
    Response.AddHeader "Cache-Control", "no-cache, must-revalidate"
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?>
    <!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD WML 1.3//EN" "http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/wml13.dtd">
    <do type="prev" label="Back"><prev/></do>

    <card title="Cyan">
    <p><a href="http://www.xxxxx.co.uk/xxx/xxxx/video.3gp">download test 3gp file</a></p>


    The WML deck does load successfully on my Nokia 6600, but when I click on the 3gp link (which is active and working from other browsers i.e the URL is correct) I get the following error message.


    "The requested item could not be loaded!"
    "(Status Code 406)"

    Does anyone know what this means ? I have been scratching my head for a few days trying to figure out how to get this to work.

    Do I have to setup a mime on the server so that 3gp video can be sent to the Nokia 6600 ?

    Please help and thanks in advance. Any info or pointers would be appreciated.

    That worked... nice one!
    I was on the right track but I got a confirmation from the developer community here.

    What is the correct MIME type?

    I was try to add "video/3gpp" ".3gp" in the IIS but seem not working. I used 3650 to download and it return file type incorrect.

    How big is the file you are trying to download?

    We have found that smaller files download ok. We don't know yet what the limit is for a Nokia 3650. If anyone knows please let me know.
