media player problem on 4.3.0

      In my application, I want to embed the video player into it, and I am using RIM API (4.3.0) to realize this.

                   As documentation said, I implemented like:


                  player = Manager.createPlayer(url)
                   //Create a new VideoControl.
                   videoControl = (VideoControl)player.getControl("VideoControl");
                //Initialize the video mode using a Field.
                   Field videoField = (Field)videoControl.initDisplayMode(VideoControl.USE_GUI_PRIMITIVE, "net.rim.device.api.ui.Field");


       But there is an exception : java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: GUI primitive type not supported

       Had anybody have same problem? I think this is supported since 4.3.0.

What version of BlackBerry handheld software are you testing this on?  You can see this under Options, About on the BlackBerry.
