The Java Media Framework (JMF) is an API for incorporating audio, video, and other time-based media into Java applications and applets. It is an optional package that extends the multimedia capabilities on the Java2 platform. The Blackdown JMF is a Performace Pack which includes native code in order to provide faster processing and tighter integration with Linux than the all-Java version.
KutttPech is a MPEG-player in Java, capable of playing MPEG-1 within your browser without downloading any irritating plug-in. It is specialized in handling live MPEG streams, but can play files just as easely. It plays Layer 2 audio on most browsers with java 1.1/1.2 and on all browsers with 1.3. It can cut P-FRAMES and B-FRAMES if the machine is too slow to handle them, so as to maintain a small lag. It can run outside a browser as an application and is reasonably fast.
The Video Performance Evaluation Resource (ViPER) is a toolkit of Java programs and scripts that enables evaluation of video processing algorithms. This includes a markup tool for video, a performance evaluation tool that compares how well result data matches ground truth video metadata, and scripts and systems for running sets of experiments.
Infojection provides a multimedia playback system. It is ideally suited to digital signage, plasma screen advertising, and public information screens. Players connected to projectors or big screens are able to display a variable schedule of Live TV or video, digital video like DivX, MPEG, Flash, MS PowerPoint, or HTML. Other possibilities can be realized through plugins. A Java/Tomcat Web app provides the Media Manager. Media is imported, scheduled, and then distributed to a potentially massive number of players and screens.
MediaFrame is a streaming media platform that provides a fast, easy to implement, and extremely small applet that allows over 97% of Web users to view your audio and video content without having to rely on external player applications or bulky plug-ins.
