    The big frustration on Nokia 6230 about audio and video!!!

    Nokia 6230 supports only three types of audio. These are
    audio/x-tone-seq
    audio/midi
    audio/sp-midi
    You can create players for these contenttypes by using MMAPI in J2Me
    Ex: By using MMAPI
    InputStream in=....
    Player p=Manager.createPlayer(in,"audio/midi");

    but you cant create for others!
    when i see it i am frustrated!!!
    It dont support video!!!!! thatsss very very bad!!!!!

    I think Nokia6230 should support the following media types:
    audio/mp3
    video/mpg
    video/3gpp

    THE BIG PROBLEM IS 6230 dont support
    capturing audio and video!!!
    you cant create players for capturing and recording!!!
    6230 should support:
    capture://video
    capture://audio
    capture://audio_video

    I HAVE HEARD THAT NOKIA WILL REALISE THE SOFTWARE OF THE 6230. HEY NOKIA HEAR ME AND SUPPORT THE
    capture://video
    capture://audio
    capture://audio_video
    audio/mp3
    video/mpg
    video/3gpp
    AND SO ON IN THE MMAPI OF J2ME OF THE 6230 !!!!!!

    Hey Spawn,

    There are lot many frustrated beings like you. Count me along with you in the Nokia 6230 MMAPI dissappointment.

    NOKIA if you are really able to hear spawn's and my pleas , please do open up some kind of outlet to play .wav, .mp3 through the java player class in MIDP 2.0

    The same problem appears on 3220 and probably 5140 too

    One more disappointed developer.
    It should not be that big a problem to enable these features, as they already are natively available!!!

    Why does not Nokia answer these resonable requests?

    I am currently tying out the 3220 which both have a camera and a microphone, native software exists and mmapi is supposedly implemented (sure the interfaces are implemented but there is nothing behind them).

    Please understand that audio and video capture is important for the developer community. It would be nice to actually be able to use the hardware and the API included in the tech spec.

    best regards,

    Hi !
    There's a simple reason why Nokia does not answer.
    In fact, they're not responsible for the midleware suite implementing the MMAPI on their phones. This seems to be the role of the carrier to ensure that a sufficient set of encoders and decoders are installed as third party codecs (look for info on the MultiMedia Framework in Symbian OS 7.0s+).
    However carriers depend on other compagnies for such middleware, like PV, so this is a game of one rejecting the responsability to another...
    Ah, it's much simpler in Japan with those dictator carriers...
    Cheers !

    Yeah I'm really disappointed with the 3220, both Sony Ericsson and Siemens allow j2me video capture in their cheaper phones!!

    I really can't see how the MMAPI could be the carriers' responsibility, installing codecs on the 3220 won't be easy since it doesn't have Symbian OS...

    Really ?!
    The MMAPI ref in itself is very blurry about video capture stuff and it can normally only support Motion JPEG compression at best. The JSR234 solves that issue but is still not supported by any terminal as far as I know.

    I would like to know where you got that information on Sony Ericsson and Siemens phones....

    Not to mention that I can't see why a carrier should set up any MMAPI stuff since Nokia sells the phones here, not the carrier.

    Nokia does not care about developers. Not unless you have lots of money. The do tout their superiority (like the person in Sonera's BD finals that said Series60 is the best platform in the world. Yeah, rite...)

    As long as people buy their phones, they don't have to care. The developer community really should unite and demand working phones, working samples etc.
