Default JAVA PLATFORM / BROWSER ON POCKET PC

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone out there knew how I could do the following...

I wanted to try to listen to a Live Stream of the Delaware State Police from the following link:

http://www.state.de.us/dsp/index.htm

Scroll down to the bottom of the page to where it says: 911 SCANNER, CLICK TO ACTIVATE.

When I click on the link on my PPC 6600, it says that I need JAVA to listen to it.

Does anyone know HOW I can get to listen to this live stream on my Pocket PC?


Thanks!

Unfortunately, it's highly unlikely it will ever work.

I've scrutinized the applet file it's using. It's in a signed 430k JAR file and AFAIK uses standard Java. This alone seems to make it impossible to use this applet in most (if not all) PPC JVM's (because most of them are Personal Java compliant only).

Unfortunately, the server isn't using SHOUTcast, RealONE or WM-compatible streaming, so, you can't use 'standardized' Pocket PC streaming clients (of which, incidentally, I've written a large-scale review in Hungarian at http://menneisyys.freeweb.hu/streaming if interested.)

I'm continuing to scrutinize the client (I've already disassembled it), but, as has already been said, don't expect much. It's quite a task even for a seasoned Java veteran like me.

Hello,

I have read a lot about NETFRONT 3.1. Would this software accomplish what I am trying to do?

Thanks!

Nope, it won't - I've tested it. I'll test with other PPC JVM's later.

The latest Creme CrE-ME 4.0 (J2ME-CDC) Beta (see http://www.nsicom.com/Default.aspx?tabid=159 ) PIE plug-in doesn't work either.

I'm converting the Java applet to an application to be able to run it outside of a browser.

I have some bad news.

I've converted the main applet class, com.broadware.client.AudioClient into an application and recompiled it into a JDK 1.2 compliant file so that I can run it under both the Jeode/Insignia 3.1 (not available any more online) and the CrEme 4.0beta JVM's (see http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jsp...&tstart=30 for more on them).

It ran and played the webvideoserv.deldot.net stuff flawlessly under all my desktop (!) JVM's in the new, recompiled, command-line application form.

On the Pocket PC, however, neither of the above-mentioned JVM's (I've tested CrEme in Personal Java mode too) were able to play sounds because neither of them support sound output on WinCE/Pocket PC. This seems to be an (even for me) unhackable obstacle.
