MediaPlayer question

I would like to create a script driven media player using the MediaPlayer bean. The script would be a list of media and the start time for each. My goal is to have a window running a main feed, such as tv or dvd, and periodically a different feed, such as weather or news summary, would be run. Basically, I want to create a script driven software 'tv station' application.

First of all, I suspect this has been done. So if anyone knows of such an app or even something close, please point me to it.
Secondly, can anyone recommend a good tutorial on the MediaPlayer bean? I have searched around for an hour or so and found a few tutorials that focus on creating a GUI to support a media player but nothing that covers all aspects of the bean. God forbid that I have to read the api documents! Seriously, a good tutorial is the best starting point, the api docs come second.

Thanks for any help or advice,
