Codec pack for the Java Media Framework
The Java Media Framework is the module that handles audio and video files in Java. It is used by many programs to integrate music and movies into a user interface. Included with the programming tools is a simple media player called Java Media Studio (JMStudio)
Although JMF supports a number of video and sound file types, inevitably you will eventually hit the "Unable to handle format:..." error message. That is where Jffmpeg comes in.
Jffmpeg is a plugin that allows the playback of a number of common audio and video formats. It is based around a Java port of parts of the FFMPEG project, supporting a number of codecs in pure Java code. Where codecs have not yet been ported, a JNI wrapper allows calls directly into the full FFMPEG code.
