Has anyone been able to get the streaming media - Start to Finish working with OS v5 and higher?
The article can be found at:
I have it running in a simulator. However, I can't get video to start playing. I tried deploying it to a device and I have the same problem.
When I stepped through the code I noticed that the player enters the prefetch call in StreamingPlayer class and times out after 10 minutes. With the following message:
javax.microedition.media.MediaException: Timed out waiting for UD|LD
I have been spending days on trying to figure out how to stream video on the blackberry with no luck. I would really appreaciate it if you guys can help.

I was able to run the code from the article successfully BUT on a real device. I haven't tried on a simulator and I don't know if it could be done.
Are you trying to stream through http?

Yes, I was trying it over http. I didn't have much luck using the device either.
If it's working for you I am starting to wonder if it's my media or server.
Can you give it from my source (this video is about 2mb):
Here is another video which about (4mb)
I am trying to run this with OS 5 using simulator 9700 and 9550.

I have streamed audio only and I modified the code to work with UDP.
If you want to make sure that it isn't your media server try to access the URL in you blackberry device browser and if it plays the media from there then your server is OK.
