RTSP streaming not supported in the Series 40 device MIDP implementations
RTSP streaming not supported in the Series 40 devices' MIDP implementations
RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) streaming is not supported in the Series 40 devices' MMAPI implementations. Instead of using RTSP streaming in Series 40 devices, use another way for downloading video content from the server.
You can give media files a URL to the createPlayer() method as a parameter.
The following is an example of how to do this:
String url = "http://www.myhost.com/videos/video.3gp";
Player player = Manager.createPlayer(url);
Note that when using HTTP, the whole file will be downloaded before anything is played.
The example above is from the MIDP: Mobile Media API Developer's Guide which can be downloaded from the Nokia Developer website. You can also test which MM APIs are supported in the devices with the MIDP: Mobile Media API Example – Media Sampler MIDlet which is referenced in the MIDP: Mobile Media API Developer's Guide and can also be downloaded from the Nokia Developer website.
Note that the RTSP streaming is supported in S60 from 2nd Edition, Feature Pack 3 onwards.
