Here are two JavaME weekend projects complete with src code.

y!p! uses the Yahoo Image Search REST API to provide mobile image search capabilities.

The source code and application are available here:

w!k! searches and displays Wikipedia articles

The source code and application are available here:

There are some videos here:

Sorry, the videos are impromptu and recorded on a laptop.

I can view them now. Very nice.

Are you aware of our Java ME Mobile Application Video Contest?

http://java.sun.com/javame/contest/

If you make the source code available in the Mobile & Embedded Community you can qualify for the special "Open Source Technology" contest category and win special prizes. See

Thanks. The source code for the aforementioned applications is available under the Apache 2.0 license. Entering the contest sounds like a great idea. I am going to look through the rules tonight.

Turns out the WME codec is actually a slightly different version of 9. I was able to use Adobe captivate to create flash demos w/o audio.

The URLs:

There are some screen shots of y!p! on the E61 here:

The previous videos are still viewable in the latest Windows Media Player. I was unable to tweak the VLC transcoding enough to create a good quality mp4.

Hi,

Thanks for posting. Unfortunately, I seem to be unable to play the videos (tried several different players, only audio is present).

Can you re-check the video?

Thanks,

Hi,

I am sorry to hear that the video portion is not working. I am able to play the video using VLC and Windows Media Player. I created the videos using Windows Media Encoder 9 with the following settings.

Audio encoding mode: CBR
Video encoding mode: CBR

Audience: 291.05 Kbps
Audio codec: Windows Media Audio 9.2
Audio format: 32 kbps, 44 kHz, mono CBR
Video codec: Windows Media Video 9 Screen
Video bit rate: 250 Kbps
Video size: Same as video input
Frame rate: 10 fps
Key frame: 3 s
Image quality: 100
Buffer size: Default

I am going create new mpg versions of the video demos this weekend, scripted and with better narration.

I will post the updated URLs to this thread. Thanks.
