[sip-comm] media transmition question


#1

hello there

I was trying to transmit a video file over sip communicator (the one i
downloaded from the website lostinspace.mov) and I was using the following
instructions to configure the sip communicator.
net.java.sip.communicator.media.MEDIA_SOURCE:
This property is very useful if you don't have a camera or no capture
devices at all but would like to transmit audio and/or video. You can
enter the URL of a media file (e.g.
file://home/user/sipcommunicator/lostinspace.mov) and it will be used to
send audio and/or video streams to the remote party. If you don't have a
suitable movie file around, you could use this one. Default is null (this
means use capture devices).

I placed the lostinspace.move file under my C drive, and entered teh URL
as"C://lostinspace.mov" (I also tried "file://lostinspace.mov" ) and I was
getting the message of "Apparently all media descriptions failed to
initialise!"

Any ideas what I might done wrong? Please help me with how should I setup
the video transmition part.

Thanks a lot
