I am modifying the mediaplayer sample code in sdk 3.1.4. From what I know, the msm6500 has the capability to play mp4 files. however, the simulator gives "Error creating media".

Should the simulator behave identical to the latest phone with msm6500 such as the LG8000. or do I need to ran the code only in the phone directly?

The simulator barely reflects any handset, unfortunately... :(
It's simply a skin that captures key events and runs win32 code (dll), you should always run on a handset (arm code), for specific phone features/timing/memory and sometimes even screensize that is not correct in the simulator...

For MPEG4 support in the simulator, please download the extension from https://brewx.qualcomm.com/brew/sdk/authdownload.jsp?page=dx/buit
The simulator does not behave identically to the latest MSM chipset. It simulates MOST of the features offerd by the chipset (and usually features that are NOT present at the ASIC level). MPEG4 decoding, 3D rendering, etc. are features usually implemented with ASIC. For some of these features, you can download a DLL for the simulator to simulate the behavior of the chipset in the SDK environment. (For example the extension for MPEG4 support above, and the OpenGLES extension for GLES support).

Please, could somebody help me to get an answer for the last question? Perhaps I haven't got the aiyengar's words right.

The extension isn't there. It doesn't appear to be anywhere in the Developer Resources area, nor is it on the Extranet. Starting to feel like a shell game...
