Is it possible to set two different orientations (Landscape and Potrait ) for two different screens that comes with the same app.
In detailed, the orientation of the app is set to POTRAIRT mode. App have an option to play Video, and client wants the video to be in LANDSCAPE mode only.
I am unable to manage the app in the potraint and only the video in Landscape mode.
When the app is intially started, it always open in POTRAIT mode(by force).
When its time to play video in a different screen( created a custom video player with a different screen), even though video started playing the app remains in POTRAIT ubtiill and unless BB is tilted by the user, once it is tilted then the video will play in LANDSCAPE and gets lock there.
The app remains in LANDSCAPE even when the user quits the video and not comes back to POTRAIT.

I have a similar issue: my app does not switch to landscape mode unless the phone is tilted - using Ui.getUiEngineInstance().setAcceptableDirections() . I have seen that forcing a certain screen orientation is possible ( http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/83
I would really appreciate any kind of help.
