Hello Gavin, welcome to the Mobile Internet

I know dotMobi well. I'm one of the founders.

They have free developer site:


Look the chain of advice they offer:

 *   Starting<http://mobiforge.com/Starting>
 *   Designing<http://mobiforge.com/Designing>
 *   Developing<http://mobiforge.com/Developing>
 *   Testing<http://mobiforge.com/Testing>
 *   Running<http://mobiforge.com/Running>

For Multimedia and video look this page:


The guide for "device detection" is done by W3C.

dotMobi provides then the "parameters of most of the mobile devices" in their Device Atlas:


When you register to be dotMobi developer (it is free) they get the
free access to the Device Atlas.

Subject: Hello all

Hello all, I've just signed up and hope to learn a few things about Mobile detection via web.

Background: I'm old C++ guys with 15 or so languages I've used over the last 20 year.  13 of those years are in Web Development.

I'm currently looking into the detection of cell phones from a website, then validating speed, validating if streaming exists, screen sizes, OS type, etc..

I've started building something that will capture this info so I can start analysing headers..

I've looked at things like MOBI and MobileMultimedia, which seems to be where I'm going.  But rather not pay for something, I think I can build myself pretty easily.  For starters, I just want to figure out if someone comes to my site, if I can stream them videos or not.  If they can stream then based on speed what type of video and what bit rate..

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
