Re: Play MP3 in 4.7.1 Doesn't work, but works in 4.6

I'm having the same problem.  4.7.1.40 simulator for Tour 9630.  NullPointerException when playing sound clips.  I don't have the device to test it on.  My code also works on a variety of devices from 4.2.1, 4.5, 4.6, 4.6.1 and Storm for 4.7.0.  But, not the Tour.  Help, Blackberry!

I am able to play my mp3 sample files just fine on Tour 4.7.1.40. Please submit an issue in the Developer Issue Tracker along with a sample mp3 which is failing to play.

Re: Play MP3 in 4.7.1 Doesn't work, but works in 4.6

I also have this exact same problem playing other media files  - mp4 files to be exact.

 

Gives me a NULL error. 

 

Seems there's a major issue with media on the Tour. Had to stop selling app's to tour users, works on ever other device 4.3+.

Re: Play MP3 in 4.7.1 Doesn't work, but works in 4.6

I can confirm the same issue - playing an mp3 works in all versions of my application except 4.7.1.  Any idea when this will be fixed?  Thanks.

Re: Play MP3 in 4.7.1 Doesn't work, but works in 4.6

I have two users (both on Tour) with the same issue.  Out of >1000 sales spread across the full spectrum of devices, the problem only occurs on the Tour.

 

Any thoughts on a workaround to get our customers back up and running?

Re: Play MP3 in 4.7.1 Doesn't work, but works in 4.6

I also have a program that plays MP3 audio on Storm, Curve 8330 and Bold, but does not work on the Tour Simulator 4.7.1.40 (9630_Verizon). As soon as I hit MPlayer.start() I receive a NullPointerException,   The real Tour phone running the same OS, oddly enough, seems to be working fine.

Re: Play MP3 in 4.7.1 Doesn't work, but works in 4.6

For RIM - another Clue to the problem: Changing the Ring Tones on the Tour Simulator says"Invalid ring tone selected; please make another selection. "

 

Simulator version  2.12.0.47, C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Smartphone Simulators 4.7.1\4.7.1.40 (9630_Verizon)
