not sure if this is the right forum but I would like to learn how to write a java swing program(not applet) that can open video files to be played. the main thing i also want to do is be able to draw shapes on top of the video like lines, ovals, rectangles etc.

does anyone know how i would get started?
I have been putting together a swing program that just draws shapes on a frame but i want to load video and draw on that.

should i use this Java media framework, will this be the key to me acheiving this?

and basically do I only need to be able to load my videos and create a transaparent frame over top to draw on?

thank you.
