jsut to be more precise.
What I installed on the MacOS (MacBook Pro, OS version 10.6.2) is the Java ME SDK 3.0.
The example I was using is the MMAPIDemos example (Video-->Video Capture - Form and Video-->Video Capture - Canvas ). In both examples the emulator returned a;
javax.microedition.media.MediaException: Player cannot be created for capture://video
exception. I also tried the same application on different versions of MacOS, with a similar result.
Suggestions very welcome!
