Specific features for Android

  • By default, MultimediaPlay is a locking function until the control is ready to play the file.
  • The MultimediaNonBlocking constant used with MultimediaPlay allows you to perform a non-locking load operation. In this case, the call to a Multimedia function (MultimediaPosition, ...) will fail as long as the multimedia file is not loaded by the control.
  • The non-locking load operations are recommended when using multimedia files not found on the device (online video for example).
