I am going to make a WebWorks/HTML5 version of a native Java Internet radio application. I am new to WebWorks development, done research a few days on WebWorks, HTML5, PhoneGap, jQuery Mobile, etc. and here are my questions:
- An Internet radio player (streaming audio) application can be made using HTML5 Audio element for devices running OS 6 and later. For devices running OS 5, an Audip Player API is introduced. However, API reference states: "The audio player is intended to play audio files only which does not include streaming audio." How can I implement a player for OS 5 devices? Do I have to use a plug-in to use native code?
- The API reference states that streaming audio is not supported, however the Audio Player API has properties like EVENT_ERROR with error codes like:
which are clearly for streaming media. So, does Audio Player API support streaming audio or not? Does this Audio Player API use the Mobile Media API (JSR 135) (http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Java-Develo

For the supported Media Formats for audio and video have a closer look to the Reference Guide - Supported Media Types (on BB PlayBook). For streaming formats supported in general you can find something on page 10 for the BB PlayBook OS and on page 16 for the BB SmartPhone OS.
