Default HTTP 3gp video playback buffering online

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone!

I have a BIG problem playing video from http resource. HTTP is a must for me because of client's requirements.
For testing I have .3gp video file with size of 1.5 MB on http server. I can play this file on Blackberry if it is stored locally on SD card with no problems. Problems start when I try to play it from server...

FileConnection con = (FileConnection)"http:..../test.3gp");
InputStream is = con.openInputStream();
Player player = Manager.createPlayer(is, "video/3gpp");
VideoControl videoControl = (VideoControl) player.getControl(" l.VideoControl");
videoControl.initDisplayMode(VideoControl.USE_DIRE CT_VIDEO, this);

videoControl.setDisplaySize(150, 150);
videoControl.setDisplayLocation(0, 0);


I have blackberry 8900 and a 8900 simulator. Tested on both.
So, the problem is that I see that blackberry starts downloading this file but never plays it... shows nothing except loading progress...

Can someone tell me how to stream/buffer this video so that player downloads it by chunks and starts playing it immediately after receiving first chunk of data.

Any help is really appreciated.
