    Re: code in video streaming???


    I responded.

    If you are working in Java, Then this will be possible shortly but not at this time with Nokia phones. Streaming is not possible at the moment in MIDlets in Nokia phones. RTSP is basically supported, but in practice MIDlet reads whole audio/video file to a buffer and plays it from there. HTTP streaming is not supported at all, yet. For another dicussion on this check out the previous thread.
