The default S60 music player application cannot be launched properly in standalone mode for playing audio files.


Devices like the Nokia N95 8GB and the Nokia N81 have problems in launching the default S60 music player in standalone mode for playing an audio file. While trying to launch the music player in standalone mode, it is launched but it does not play anything.

How to reproduce

Use the following code snippet to launch the S60 music player to play the audio file.

TApaTaskList iTaskList(CCoeEnv::Static()->WsSession());
TBool iExists;
TApaTask iApaTask = iTaskList.FindApp(TUid::Uid(0x102072C3));
iExists = iApaTask.Exists();
// Music player already running
// music player is not runnin and needs to be launched
RApaLsSession iAplsSession;
TThreadId thread;
iAplsSession.StartDocument(_L("C:\\Data\\Music.mp3"), thread, RApaLsSession::ESwitchFiles);

This code snippet works fine with other S60 3rd Edition, FP1 devices, such as the Nokia N95, and the S60 default music player is able to play the audio file by launching in standalone mode. However, in devices such as the Nokia N81 and the Nokia N95 8GB, the music player is launched but it does not play anything.


In these devices, the S60 music player can only be launched in embedded mode by using the Document Handler API (or) the AIW framework.
