How to set a bitrate for video encoding?

[ Edited ]

Hi there,

Does anybody know if it's possible to limit a bitrate for the MPEG-4 encoder when capturing video in BB OS v.5.0?

We are trying the following code on BB Bold 9000 (v. but it doesn't work for us.


_player = javax.microedition.media.Manager.createPlayer("capture://video?encoding=video/3gpp&width=176&height=144&fps=8&video_codec=MPEG-4&audio_codec=AMR");
VideoFormatControl _vfc = (VideoFormatControl)_player.getControl("javax.microedition.amms.control.VideoFormatControl");
_vfc.setParameter(FormatControl.PARAM_BITRATE, 128000); // Returns error with not supported


Thanks in advance
