How to add video controls (rewind, forward, seek bar) in a blackberry application?

[ Edited ]

Hi Experts,

 

I'm developing a blackberry application that plays video from the server. I've used Player.start() and Player.stop() for playing and pausing a video. But I also need rewind, forward and seek bar controls in my application. I tried using FramePositioningControl for these controls. But the following code is returning null.

 

FramePositioningControl framePositioningControl = (FramePositioningControl) player.getControl("FramePositioningControl");

 

I searched several forums and it says many players do not support FramePositioningControl. Can I know which all are the players that support FramePositioningControl. And also what else should I do to add these controls in my application. Please help, its very urgent.

 

Thank you very much in advance,

Sinu Mathews

Perhaps we should get this thread moved to the Java developer section of the forum, not this Forum Feedback and ideas section.

Any update on this issue?

I am also having a similar issue. I want my app to have a seek functionality so I tried getting an instance of FramePositionControl from the player but it returns null.

I tried getting all available controls but only the VideoControl and VolumeControl were returned.

The following sample implements the seek bar:

FramePositioningControl is not supported on the java player.
