Did anyone succeed in getting the videoRecordingDemo sample (comes with JDE5.0) to work?
I tried on BlackBerry 9700 v126.96.36.1990 (Platform 188.8.131.52) and here is what I experienced:
1. start recording video for a while, select "stop recording" from menu. Try to play the file from the media player on the same phone and get "the media being played is of unsupported format"
2. start recording video and select "yes" to record to stream. record for a while, then select "commit recording" from menu. select "play recording" and got MediaExcepton: Error initializing media
3. start recording video for a while, select "commit recording". the app does not response to any key press anymore. I had to reboot the device to get out of it.
Any thoughts on what could go wrong? Thanks

This sounds like the issue logged in Issue Tracker here: https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/JAVAAPI-814
For #3, how long did you record and how long did you wait?

For #3, I probably recorded for 5 sec. and then have to reboot to get out.
I tried to record a bit longer 20-30 sec and when try to play, I got MediaExeption: error initializing media
It miraculously worked once where I recorded 22 second video and that can be played back. But cannot reproduce the success any more.
Is there a limit on how long to record and how long to wait?
