A simple mp3 player on a web page that works on the BlackBerry

I am a new member of this community and would appreciate help in a project I am undertaking.


I want to be able to use the BB browser to access a web page that has a podcast on it.


A simple media controller would do the trick as the podcast is an mp3 file. I usually use Adobe Flash for this but the BB is not compatible.


Does anyone have any suggestions where to start?

I guess the first place to start is how far back in BlackBerry OS versions are you wanting to provide support.  


Pretty much any hope you would have for audio would likely start at the 5.0 OS.  To give you an idea of the amount of 5.0 usage in the BlackBerry install base you can check out the following link:



Those numbers are global results so regionally it can change
