Play video in BB browser query

Hello ,

 

I have a basic question, Can we play video in blackberry browser in OS 6 and above?

API 6.0 and 7.0 "Working with audio" decription of multimedia doc mentions that audio can be playback in blackberry browser but the same is not written for video.


Video playback in blackberry browser was supported in OS 5 but I am not finding the same discription in 

http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/17968/Playing_video_1229133_11.jsp              APi 6.0

http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/34482/Working_with_video_1792801_11.jsp  API 7.0

 

Please confirm, application which using BB browser to play video are compatible with OS 6.0 and 7.0?

I would appreiate if someone can look into the other thread

Thanks in advance.

Hi redimedic,

 

If all you want is Video in the browser in OS 6 and above then I would suggest using HTML5 Video

Re: Play video in BB browser query

Hello Jeff,

 

Can I use HTML5 in my Java Application?

My requirement is to run a .mp4 video inside the application. 

 

Please provide guidence how can it be used by pointing to some sample code,if possible.

Crashed using BrowserSession to run video is reproducible, so for sure BrowserSession class cant be used for OS6 and above.

 

 

Regards,

Priyanka Gupta
