Default Video Play/Pause Issue

Please Login to Remove!

Hello All,

I am trying to provide Play/pause funcionality on menu Item click. But when I click pause menu item, it gives me a blank screen and not exact paused image(I observed this behaviour on simulator).

My simulator details are,

BB 9530 v

So, I provided the same behaviour(play/pause) on touch events of STORM. By doing this play/pause working ok on simulator(sometime it still gives me the blank image). But when I try the App on device, most of the times when I pause(on touch) the movie it shows me a blank screen.

I have provided the play/pause functionality on touch event like this.

I called handleUpEvent() method from touchven. It is coded like this.
public void handleUpEvent(){ 
if(player != null){ 
if (player.getState() == Player.STARTED){ //Stop playback. 
	}catch (Exception ex){ 
		//System.out.println("Exception: " + ex.toString()); 
		Dialog.alert("handleUpEvent stop::Exception: " + ex.toString()); 
	}else if(player.getState() == Player.PREFETCHED){ // I tried with Player.STOP also //Start playback. 
	}catch (Exception ex){ 
		//System.out.println("Exception: " + ex.toString()); 
		Dialog.alert("handleUpEvent start::Exception: " + ex.toString()); 
Can anyone please tell me, what am I doing wrong here?.

One more thing I am playing player indefinitely, I mean

player.setLoopCount(-1);// to play the movie indefinitely

Am I clear to you all?

Any help will be greatly appreciated
