Playbook browser issue

[ Edited ]

Hi,


i had developed a program in PHP which plays video in Blackberry browser using jwplayer. Everything works fine but while playing video greater than 150 MB with video length 144 second, the videos stop playing after few seconds, just buffering icon is shown.

I think the cache of the browser is full. so it cant cache the data.

It stops working in about 80-100 MB of data is played.

Any opinion will be appreciable.

thanks in advance

Large video doesn't play in browser

[ Edited ]

I have a video of 2 minutes of 186mb in my website. The video is played using jwplayer. This video stops buffering after it downloads around 80 to 100 mb in playbook. I have verified it plays in pc browser. Here is the detail of the video extracted using ffmpeg. 

 

Is there browser cache size restriction ? However, the video can be played using video player while browsing the video directly from browser. It can't be played only using the jwplayer. What could have been wrong ?

 

thanks in advance,

Re: Playbook browser issue

can you confirm that using another browser (for example Mozilla Firefox) you do not have this issue?

besides, I think that 150MB for a 144s is too much for a 1024x600 definition video.

Re: Playbook browser issue

I'm experiencing the same issue with the browser. It'll play about half of a video then freeze at "Buffering..." For the first few days, it would play videos of more than an hour in length. Now it'll play only about 12 - 15 minutes of video before stopping. Very frustrating. Anyone have any ideas to the cause?

Re: Playbook browser issue

If it is in fact connected with the cache of the browser being full go into your browser's settings and clear the cache data.  Simply slide your finger from the top of the frame to drop down the Gear icon from within the browser.  May not fix the problem but just wanted to make sure that option is available to you.  Good luck!

Re: Playbook browser issue

Clearing the cache doesn't really help. I did find that clearing local storage helps, but that's quite inconvenient and inefficient to have to do after every long podcast or video. Smiley Sad

Re: Playbook browser issue

I understand your frustration, same thing happens on both of my tablets when I watch too many videos on YouTube.
