Play Audio File on Blackberry


I am trying to play a wav file on the blackberry and the debug is not giving me an Exception to work with.  I have imported the wav file ('notify.wav') into my project as a resource (in the 'res' folder).  Below is the snippet of code that should play the audio file, but there's no sound when I invoke the method.



InputStream inptstrm =getClass().getResourceAsStream("/res/notify.wav");

Player p = javax.microedition.media.Manager.createPlayer(inptstrm, "audio/x-wav");


VolumeControl volume = (VolumeControl)p.getControl("VolumeControl");





catch(Exception me){



I suspect my issue is with the import and finding where the file is to play.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Play Audio File on Blackberry

Agree finding the input file is the trick.


Don't think you need the res, just try



Do put some System.out.println(..) output in your exception handler too.
