Depending on the target device, it might be necessary to provide a Player.prefetch() method in order to the video display to adjust correctly to the Form.


When playing video with display (defined with USE_GUI_PRIMITIVE mode) placed on Form, some phones such as the Nokia N90, Nokia N93, and Nokia 5500 Sport require that Player.prefetch() needs to be defined right after the Player.realize() method, otherwise the video display is not correctly adjusted to Form.

Other S60 phones such as the Nokia N70, Nokia N72, and Nokia E61 do not require such a specific definition in the sense that same default display on Form is shown in these phones regardless whether the Player.prefetch() is defined right after the Player.realize() or much later (but before the Player.start() method).


Place the Player.prefetch() method right after the Player.realize() method.
