Media Player Implementation

Hi Folks

Is it possible to write our own Media Player without using MMAPI in Blackberry environment.

I am looking for some native calls, which play my media directly.


Please suggest.

@ankit Remeber this is a user-to-user forum. MSohm doesn't respond to every post.


@lsonu123 There really isn't any access to native APIs so I don't think ou would be able to write a media player without MMAPI. There is no native audio API except "Audio" and "Alert" and neither are really useable for a media player.


The only way to do video would be to write your own decoder and display the decoded video in a paint function which might not be fast enough, let alone the amount of time to decode a video in a BB Java app/library.
