Video not shown in ported blackberry 10 from android

I have ported my android application to blackberry 10 using The blackberry runtime for android apps . My android app is ported fine and its running on blackberry 10 simulator.


I have a video to be played at the very first install of my app. This video is played well in android. But in my ported blackberry app the video is not at all shown.Instead I get a blank screen being displayed for few seconds and the application starts as usual from the home screen.


I am using Video View  in android. Can anyone help me?

Hey sandhiya,


Would you be able to provide a small snippet from the logs when this issue occurs? That might help to isolate where your issue resides.


You can get logs directly from the LogCat view in Eclipse, or you could pull them using the Command Line Tools as detailed in this blog post.
