Force orientation when mediaplayer is playing

Hi everyone,


I would like to block my application in portrait mode but I use the mediaplayer invokation and I would like to change the orientation to landscape only when the mediaplayer is playing and return to portrait when the user closes the mediaplayer.

Is there a way to do that ?


I have tried to use :

OrientationSupport *support = OrientationSupport::instance();

 but it blocks the app in landscape even after the mediaplayer is closed.

Is there an event I can use to put back the orientation to portrait at the right time ?

Or is there another way to handle this ?
