Default Media Player Bugs in Firmware > .64

Please Login to Remove!

I've been holding off from upgrading to the latest TMO firmware for some time now and I hoped that RIM would've resolved this issue by now.. but maybe they just aren't aware of it.

Now we all know that all these new BlackBerry's are reaching out to the personal user as well.. having the Media Playback support (Video & Audio), etc. So these bugs absolutely must be addressed.

The behavior in 4.2.1.175/4.2.1.107 is as follows:

Environment: Media Player in use for Audio Playback and a Call is Received
Behavior:
  1. Audio track is paused (time elapsed is shown)
  2. Ringer sounds through speaker instead of earpiece (call ignored)
  3. Audio track restarts from start of song instead of resume
In version .64, when a call was received and ignored, the track never paused and the track immediately resumed after the ringing stopped. If the call was answered and later ended, the tracked resumed from where it was paused.


Environment: Media Player in use for Audio Playback and an Email/SMS is Received
Behavior:
  1. Audio track is paused (time elapsed is shown)
  2. Ringer sounds through speaker instead of earpiece
  3. Audio track remains paused and does not restart or resume
In version .64, when an email was received, the track never paused and you received the sound (or vibrate) notification allowing you to Alt-Esc to the Message screen.

I'm sure similar behaviors can be observed when playing Video and an event (call, email, etc) is received. Does anyone know if there any way I can forward these issues to RIM QA?

Or maybe my best bet is to just ditch the BlackBerry Media Player and use the Dollars5 player.. Not sure how this application handles incoming events.
