Is there a free Java based MP4 parser out there? preferably open-source?

I'm looking for some Java API to read, parse, and possibly modify MP4 files and it's metadata. Many thanks in advance for any info.

Roops !!!

"roops roops", please check your private messages. You can see them by clicking My Private Messages.

About your question: I don't know if MP4 is encumbered by patents like MP3, and if it is, you're most likely not going to find a free and open source implementation of it.

I'm not sure but maybe the Java Media Framework can handle MP4.

Try searching a little harder

VLC -the software for which JVLC provides a Java API- can handle MPEG-4.

Yeah JVLC supports mpeg-4 but it has API's to play video file. My problem is that I want to extract metadata like Album, Artist from mp4 file.

Can anybody help me ???

That looks promising, but from the link it appears it might only be an alpha version.

And welcome to JavaRanch
