Streaming Media Error After 200K

I've searched on google with no luck on this one.


I am trying to impliment a custom datasource for limitedratestreaming as seen in many online examples.  My problem occurs when the players bytearrayoutputstream reaches the 204800 offset.  The offset then resets back to 0 and the len is then asking for 204800 again.


Why is the player only satisfied with 204800 byte streams?


Example (.... read(byte [] b, int off, int len)


What exactly happens here?


 I realize the player sets the offset to 0, but is it a new instance of custom sourcestream?  

B/C early ... during setup... GetStreams is called 2 times.  Content Length is called 3 or 4 times. Does that mean that 2 streams are returned to use? When one dies the next is used for continuous flow?


I start printing debug info when the offset reaches near 200 k.


I receive the following error in simulator ...

Ive never seen this RT IOException: java.io.IOException RimStreamingWriteBuffer failed.

It also seems like it dies right after those 2 VM:NCICv commands at the end.  But i cant tell what those mean.  They look similar to when the debugger picks up a wifi connection after restarting the wifi connection.


Any ideas?

Re: Streaming Media Error After 200K


can you please post the code snippet here.

I worked on the BOLD 9700 5.0 device and i did not face such an issue.

I used PIpedIO stream (not available in RIM , used the core java class)for bufferring the data.

Re: Streaming Media Error After 200K

i have seen pipedinputstream but that is not efficient so i have built my own customized inputstream for player and i am getting same problem . have you tested loopback or stream getting from network? i have not faced  problem for loopback recording and playing at same time.  i am getting that problem when i am playing data getting from network...
