  • Comparing MMAPI and the MIDP 2.0 Media API

              The MIDP 2.0 Media API is a direct subset of MMAPI.It intended for devices with very limited resources running MIDP 2.0.

         It has same subset of adopted by other profiles requiring sound support.It include API Requirements:

                   •  Low-footprint audio playback

                   •  No dependence on particular protocols or content formats

                   •  Support for tone generation

                   •  Support for general media flow controls such as start, stop, seek, etc.

                   •  Support for media type-specific controls such as volume

                   •  Support for capability query

    The MIDP 2.0 Media API differs from MMAPI in several ways:

                   •  It's audio-only; it excludes all Controls specific to video or graphics.

                   •  It doesn't support synchronizing simultaneous playback of multiple Players using a common time base.

                   •  It doesn't support custom protocols by way of custom DataSources, the javax.microedition.media.protocol package is excluded.

                   •  A simplified version of Manager is used.
