MediaStopped working

I am trying to play a downloaded MP3 file in QML with mediaPlayer.setSourceUrl("file:///accounts/1000/appdata/com.xxx.xxx/data/26872.mp3")


It was working fine in the devAlpha images prior to the Jan30 release when I submitted my app.. now it's failing with 


MediaPlayer:Smiley Tonguerepare: Error attaching input source. url="/accounts/1000/appdata/com.xxx.xxx/data/26872.mp3", error=UnsupportedMediaType

Playing the same file over http is fine.. Any idea?

Re: MediaStopped working

I have the same problem on Dev Alpha C. Neither MP3 nor AAC streams are supported. It worked on Dev Alpha A though. BlackBerry, please fix it
