Hello Everybody

I am using JMF to play audio of an mp3 file but failing to do so...

can somebody help... when I am compiling and running the same .java file on windows platform it's working...
but it's not working on Linux platform. It is giving the folowing exception when run on Red Hat Linux 9.0

but Linux was able to play the same mp3 file using media players that exists on it.

Unable to handle format: mpeglayer3, 44100.0 Hz, 16-bit, Stereo, LittleEndian, Signed, 12000.0 frame rate, FrameSize=32768 bits
Failed to realize:
Error: Unable to realize

This is the javacode that I am using...


public class audio
Player p;

public audio()
File f = new File("./1.mp3");
p = Manager.createPlayer(f.toURL());
catch(Exception e)
System.out.println("Error in constructor : "+e);
public static void main(String argv[])
audio a = new audio();

Hey there,

I know that java-1.4.2 does not have such great support for the ALSA sound system. So you may want to give java-1.5 a shot.

Hope this helps,

You don't know me, but I've been looking all over the world for. Thanks to the help from this tiny ad:
