Storing and accessing an image or a video

To query the default system paths used for storing different types of media files, use the Platform Environment API.

To manage images, video clips, audio files, music tracks, and streaming links (URLs) stored in the device memory or on the memory card, use the S60 Media Gallery application. For information on how to use the application, see Launching Media Gallery from another application on Forum Nokia. The Media Gallery includes the following embedded applications:

  • Image Viewer for viewing images

  • Media Player for playing video clips and streaming media

  • Music Player for playing audio files

Alternatively, use the Media Fetch API to fetch media files. To retrieve information on multimedia content stored in mobile devices, you can use the Content Listing Framework API.

For more information on the different options, see How to fetch media files on Forum Nokia.
