Playing videos in slow motion

Hi,

 

I'm using the qnx media player class (http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/airapi/1.0.0/qnx/media/MediaPlayer.html) and would like to use the speed property to allow for slow motion.  When I set this property to < 1000, it's not what I expect.  It just seems to be a choppy playback rather than slow motion as I expect. 

 

Is there another API I should be using?

 

Thanks!

Derek.

define choppy...

 

if there aren't any more frames than 24 or 31 the playback will stutter. there's no inbuilt interpolation between images.

Re: Playing videos in slow motion

Hi lrrm, thks for your reply. I trying to play video with 24 or 31 fps without any stutter. For ex, slow it down by 2x or 3x or even frame by frame. I'm scratching my head and trying to figure out the best approach...
