    Last question (I hope) about the audio module

    From the Python for Nokia Series 60 documentation, it states that the audio module typically supports WAV, AMR, MIDI, MP3 and AAC file formats. WAV works fine, but I can't seem to get MIDI or MP3 to work. It always terminates with the following error:

    SymbianError: [Errno -18] KErrNotReady

    Does this mean that the file is not loaded for playback yet? If so, how do I wait for it? I've heard of other problems where if the file isn't encoded _just right_ it'll crash as well.

    Any help anyone can offer will be much appreciated.

    The applicable code is below.

    Code:
            # Open and play the file.
        	self.sound_obj = Sound.open(item)
        	self.sound_obj.play()

    Same counts for me, while .wav works like a charm, no .mp3 playback in Python 1.2 on my n-gage.
    Comments? Help?

    Have a look at table located at:

    http://www.forum.nokia.com/audiovideo#ac

    This thread has also some information:

    Some devices do not support MP3 playing natively (from C++), which is what PyS60 builds on.

    Thx a lot!
    It would be nice to add this piece of advice to the API Reference - at least in the PythonforSeries60_for_1stEd_FP1 Package.
