Video Capture on Storm



I want to capture a videoon my storm so I tried thisexample: http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/8542/CS_record_video_without_using_the_camera_...


When launching in DebugMode, I'll get an exception because


System.getProperty( "video.encodings" )


returns null, so I can't set the properties to


 _player = javax.microedition.media.Manager.createPlayer( "capture://video?" + encoding );


Is there any other way to get the properties? Does anyone have a working example of capturing a video?

Re: Video Capture on Storm

This requires BlackBerry handheld software version 5.0, which is not yet available.


You can use the beta release of the version 5.0 BlackBerry JDE to test this out.
