why doesn't video is getting played on blackberry

Hi, im a j2me developer and i've written a code which downloads a video from link and shows up. the code is written in j2me MMAPI and it is working fine in normal J2me devices. but the same code base when putting in blackberry 8130. it is not working. it is not displaying the video nor the sound. can any body please answer me why this happens. 1) i tried by "player" class in MMAPI, then just blackscreen is coming up. 2) i tried by platformrequest() method. in this case blackberry browser opens up showing all the freaky characters but not the video. can you suggest me on what needs to be required??Do i need to use blackberry specific API and invoke blackberry native media player? in that case how does the signing happens for that? can i get trail signatures from RIM??whats the procedure.. please do respond. this is urgent for us.

Re: why doesn't video is getting played on blackberry

If you are not able to play the video within the BlackBerry Browser, you won't be able to play it using the Player class.


Please verify that the video format you are using is supported by the version of BlackBerry handheld software you are testing on.  You can find this under Options, About on the BlackBerry handheld.
