I know for certain that the player that comes with sun j2me functions that way. I even decompiled one of the players to see if there was a way around it. aside from writing your own implementation, there wasn't. It read the entire stream during player.realize() and stored it as an internal variable before returning.
its entirely possible that RIM's mmapi player implementation for bb is different. 3gp, mp4 and other formats aren't in sun j2me so RIM either wrote it themselves or bought it. either way there is the chance that the player was implemented correctly.
I'm still working on getting my stream to play so hopefully ill have a definitive answer soon. All the data appears to transfer, i just can't seem to get video out of the player (no controls).
