Problem with playing video files

I am fairly new to J2ME. Just need to write one MIDlet to play the video files. The requirement is, need to fetch the video file first time from remote server and need to store in the local file system on the handset. From subsequent request for the video play will be played from local file.

I am running into couple of issues with my code:
1) Downloading and storing in the local file system successfully, but the play part getting the exception “createPlayer() failed”. – Basically not able to play manually. Is it the problem of video format while storing?
2) I could not take the control on video, if I place the good format video (playing if we run manually) into local system.

FYI - I am writing for Samsung omnia handset.

Any help highly appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
