Just a quick note - This is great to see! I'm hoping that this forum
becomes a valuable resource for all of the GEM terminal specifications,
including BD-J, OCAP, MHP, and ARIB-J. The name of the forum is maybe
a little BD-J centric; I'm glad that's not preventing OCAP discussions.

When I set this forum up, there was a bit of a debate about naming, but
in the end we went with BD-J in the name, since that seemed like the best
way to attract participation and get critical mass. That said, I absolutely
welcome and encourage technical (and other ;-) ) discussions of all the
other related Java-based TV platforms.

Thanks!

Cheers,

Bill

P.S. Hello from L.A. Superior court! Nope, it's not that; just jury duty.

Yes, I do all the time. Then again, I work for Vidiom.

Do you have a VWB question? Or are you trying to use it for BD-J development?

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, I have VWB question. I am using VWB for developing OCAP applications.

I am using the example "http://www.interactivetvweb.org/resources/code/jmf/XletviewJMFExample.java"

I need to play a video by using the above example in VWB. In VWB it doesn't support the (.avi) format, so i have tried with mpeg format. But while creating the Player it shows as NoPlayer Exception.

Can u please tell me whether is it possible to run the video file in VWB by using the above example.

Thanks in Advance,

Sourub.

Hi Sourub:

Given that this isn't a BDJ topic let's take it off line and I can point you in the right direction.

Ah, I was afraid there might me a time-phase discontinuity of the
messages...

If you want to take it offline because it's a product support issue,
go ahead. However, please *don't* take it offline because it's not
directly related to BD-J. IMHO OCAP itself is related to BD-J, so anything
OCAP related is perfectly within the charter of this group.

This discussion list and forum are basically covered by the charter
of hdcookbook.dev.java.net. The main page for that says:

Welcome to the HD Cookbook source repository! This is an open,
collaborative place to gather useful code for Blu-ray Java, and other
GEM terminal specifications like MHP, OCAP, and GEM-IPTV.

So, the more OCAP, the better!

Cheers,

Bill

Thanks for the note Bill. In that case I will post the response from our
great support team so all can benefit.

OCAP does not require that an implementation be able to play a MPEG video
from a file included in the app. Our stack, whether in VWB or on a STB does
not support playing any video from a file. The example from
www.interactivetvweb.org, XletviewJMFExample, states:

// This will NOT work in a real MHP or OCAP implementation because MHP
and
// OCAP do not support playing a video from a file. In a real
// implementation, this URL should be a dvb:// or ocap:// URL,
depending
// on the platform.

The OcapLocator does not support creation with a file. They have to be
service oriented (source ID, FPQ numbers, etc.) You could also look at the
DVR sample applications to play back a pre-recorded MPEG file, which might
help you acheive what you want.
