Cant play RTSP video over wifi in BB widget.

Hi,

 

I have built a widget that displays links to rtsp video streams. I invoke the browser to play the stream. When I have  wifi enabled on a device and I am connected to an access point, I am not able to stream any video. When I turn off wifi, the streaming magically works over 3G. 

 

I have messed with the order for connection and have tried the following orders with no luck:

 

 

  <rim:connection>
    <id>MDS</id>
    <id>BIS-B</id>
    <id>TCP_CELLULAR</id>
    <id>WAP2</id>
    <id>WAP</id>
    <id>TCP_WIFI</id>
  </rim:connection>



  <rim:connection>
    <id>TCP_WIFI</id>
    <id>MDS</id>
    <id>BIS-B</id>
    <id>TCP_CELLULAR</id>
    <id>WAP2</id>
    <id>WAP</id>
  </rim:connection>

 

 

 

I am testing on a Torch, 9700 and the Bold.

 

Any ideas?

Hi mrpaul,

 

Do you see the same behaviour if you open up the RTSP streams directly from the browser?  Can you also post up the BlackBerry OS version where you are seeing this behaviour?

Hey tneil, Thanks for the reply!

 

I am running v6.0.0.246 on a torch. I test the rtsp link on the browser, Not thru the app and again, it works in 3G but not on wifi.

Interesting. Instead of using my normal internet connection, I tethered my iphone to my mac, broadcasted a wifi signal and connected to it using the Torch. I was able to get the video to play on wifi. I am assuming this is a firewall issue.
