Default How do I get a video playing successfully through the browser! BB Bold

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has embedded or even link to a video, that they uploaded online and had it successfully working. I was working with the .3gp format and when I view it online (after i have uploaded it) it shows gobbled and gibberish code.

Any suggestions, advice will be welcomed greatly.

Oh wow that's exactly what I'm looking for hrbuckley. So for instance, how do I get to use those functions i.e.

String url= "myserver.com/video/"
Browser.getDefaultSession().displayPage(url);

is it through ASP, Java, JSP, HTML what language ?

Those particular functions would be done in a Java application on the Blackberry written using (for example) the JDE.

Thanks, hrbuckley.

This only brings me to one final question. Is there somehow a way to link this to online. Because and I quote from you "would be done in a Java application". The thing is I do not want to work in the application rather have the video streamed online. Can I embed it within some html coding? Is there a way to integrate with this JDE with ASP or even HTML or call JDE to play the video file from either one of them.

Do I have to save out the page which the link with the video is at to as some JAVA file as well as embed the video itself so that Java converts this video into viewable format.. I am guessing something like JSP or JS since it needs to be online. This may mean that I have to be using some using a specific server enabled setting (i.e if you uploaded ASP code and your online server is a JSP reader.. it wont read it cause the interpreter/reader is JSP), can I pass variables between the JDE Language and ASP.

Basically what I am trying to say is where is the connection, because my page is setup up using HTML and ASP, where does JDE talk with HTML/ASP.

Here's the basic layout:
intro -> menu (there are 4 links) -> click video link -> displays through Blackberry Video browser the video itself (in 3gp format).

Sorry, I did not intend to write a novel.

Yes, if the browser (on one of the supported machines) loads a link to media, eg: http://www.my.server/video.avi the media will be downloaded and played. This was discussed in the first section of the video, though from a Java developer point of view.

If you want to stream video you can use rtsp://www.my.server/streaming_source_url which will stream the media. Streaming is only supported on Wi-Fi, direct TCP and WAP, not on BIS, BIS-B or BES.

Is it possible to stream it through my own server and not using the RTSP. Doesn't the RTSP require its own server, or does the RTSP connect to the HTTP (just so it can stream the video). If the latter is the case then how come I am getting a "Content not available. Server is blocked or unresponsive".

How do I host videos on my server (host video over HTTP), then if I want to access it all I have to do is go to it and it will stream the video

Those are server questions, beyond my ken.
