Re: Stream Audio In Webworks

Are you allowing access to the domain you are playing from in the config.xml?

Yes I allowed access to the domain it is a shoutcast server  and the url of the provider is voscast.com

This is how i allowed access to the domain in my config.xml file


<access uri="http://voscast.com" subdomains="true">


The funiniest thing is that it plays in the blackberry simulator browser but once i compile it, it doesn't play in the simulator

Re: Stream Audio In Webworks

Audio might not work well in the simulator, this is a known issue. Have you tried it in Ripple? Does it work there? If so, perhaps you could test it out on a device and give it a shot. Worst case post some code here so we can help you debug it.

Yes, i tried it in ripple and it worked perfectly well.

I uploaded toe code to a test server and tried playing it using the Simulator browser and it worked perfectly.

But once compiled it didnt worked on the simulator and on a real device.


Find attached some code.

<content src="index.html" />
<access uri="http://voscast.com" subdomains="true">
<feature id="blackberry.app" version="" required="true"/>
