Can apps on newer BlackBerry models play these codecs/containers?

I would like to write a BlackBerry app (for newer models) that streams both an audio and video feed with the following characteristics:


  • Streaming MPEG-TS over UDP/IP
  • Video using h.264 codec
  • Audio using AAC codec

My first question is: is this even possible (to stream such media into a BB app)? If not, why (is the container incompatible, or some other reason)? If so, how (what software/media player)? If it is possible, I need a way to open that media player from inside the app, but have no idea how to do that. Thanks in advance.
