Playing rtsp: files

I have a xv6900 and I would like to know how I would be able to play an rtsp file. Evry time I try it just says "unknown error occurred".

Thanks

Hello Baboon.

As far as I know, RealPlayer for Windows Mobile is "abandonware," although you could try installing it if you haven't already.

RTSP is not actually a file format, but rather a transfer protocol. It is proprietary and rarely supported by any other programs besides RealPlayer, although it's possible someone has written another WM program for this purpose.

Thanks man. Its when I try to view a video from (say) youtube. It looks like it's going to play but then pops the error message.

I'll put Real Player on it and see how it goes.

Thanks again.

No dice.

"An unknown error 0X8007274D has occurred".

I have never heard of YouTube using RTSP, for anything.

So are you really just looking for a YouTube player or Flash player? I think there are several of those for Windows Mobile. CorePlayer is a good start for general video playback, although I think using it directly with YouTube would require some add-ons.

Re: Playing rtsp: files

Actually, a week ago I updated the ROM on my device when I called for a separate issue. This is the first time since the update that I went to You Tube. Sure enough, there's now a link that says "download you tube application". So I do, and now I have an app that is just like going to You Tube. I was using 'youtube play' before but this new app kills it.

If I use Inernet Explorer and go to You Tube, select a video, click 'watch video' I get the error message I described above. I don't think this new app is web based.

Thanks for the help man.

Yes, the new YouTube player is very cool but no, it doesn't tie into IE Mobile at all. It's a standalone application.

Well I was using the new You Tube app (from Google I believe) and the clarity on the video is very poor. It is cool and very user friendly, but poor video play back quality has led me back to youtube play. The videos on youtube play are much clearer but it is way more quirky than the other.

I just downloaded the Sky Fire Web Browser last night and it allows my device to play You Tube or any other flash playing site I've tried so far perfectly, just by going to the site. I may just scrap youtube play again. I like the looks of Internet Explorer better than Sky Fire, but SF is pretty cool so far (still new to it).

I would suggest giving Sky Fire a shot.
