I am trying to find out if it is possible to play movies using java. Ie, something like avi files. Is there an api to do this? Any help is appreciated. Todd.

What you need to do is have a look at JMF - Which is Java Media Foundation. These can be found at the java.sun.com. These classes are specifically built so that you can play movies, a variety of sounds, and even Flash movies (although only version 2... which I personally think was a waste of effort)

In fact, I think a version was recently released.

Hope that helps

Mark
