Recently, the development of mobile phone technology is growing rapidly. These developments led to the emerging of a multimedia mobile phone that supports Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN). However, the use of WLAN technology on mobile phones to access the streaming video is very rarely encountered. While the current S60 Symbian operating system as a multimedia mobile phone is very reliable in handling a variety of media such as video.The discussion in this study presents the making of a video streaming application in mobile phone via a WLAN connection using JSR 135 technology or better known as the Mobile Media API (MMAPI). MMAPI is used to control the process of video streaming and its supporting features. The application will use the two protocols namely RTSP and HTTP. Experiment results show that the use of MMAPI on Symbian 60 based mobile phones to do video streaming is feasible and has good reliability. This is indicated by 0% packet loss on a reliable connection. In addition, the times required to play multimedia files are not affected by the size of video streaming files.
