Newbie again, I am currently developing a simple Java app targeting JRE 5.0 and above using the Eclipse Plugin 1.5.2. I have the necessary logic to play a simple MP3 file and the code steps through fine on my 9330 simulator but I don't actually hear anything from the speakers on my development machine. I've done 'SEARCH'ing and see that over time a lot of people indicate problems with certain simulators and playing audio. How do I go about determining the status of playing audio on various simulators at this point? I'm looking for something that indicates exactly needs to be in-place so that audio will work on the simulators and/or a list of simulator models that work/fail. I do not want to waste time trying to decide if it is a simulator problem or that I don't have something properly setup in my development environment.
As part of my searching, I ran into this: https://developer.blackberry.com/devzone/resources
I'm going to keep on searching but if anyone can point me in the proper direction it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

The link you refer to is for BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry PlayBook simulators.
The 7.1 and lower BlackBerry smartphone simulators make use of the audio codecs installed on your PC for audio playback. Are you saying that you hear audio from some simulators but not others? Or are you not hearing audio from any of them?

I played with this over the weekend and did get it to work. I did a clean.bat on the simulator and made some coding changes and it all worked. I'm chaulking it up to 'newbie'. I did find the 'getResourceAsStream' a bit confusing. I am currently only using the 9330 and 8530 simulators.
When 'SEARCH'ing on this topic, there are some posts indicating 'issues' with simulators. I try to take all posts with a grain of salt since they can be stale and/or resolved, I wonder if there is a place where any issues with simulators are listed and if there are resolutions/work arounds? I'll mark this closed since I am proceeding.
Thanks for the reply!
