The article presents a nice overview of the API, demonstrating the main classes and how these can be used together to perform multimedia-related functions in midlets. The article contains a nice figure to explain the different stages a Player object can be in. The code examples are well explained and any complexities are outlined before the code is presented. The code examples aren't particularly in-depth, but they do help illustrate the most common use cases of the MMAPI. The article manages to cover a wide array of topics in a very short space, and is therefore very useful. For readers wanting to know how to incorporate more advanced multimedia functionality in their midlets, the Advanced Multimedia Supplements API allows us to do more complex thing with cameras and sound playback. Unfortunately, many of the nice camera features such as focus and light settings are currently not supported by Nokia devices.
