Hi folks,

Has anyone implemented a MP4 player in Java? Does a video player written purely in Java exist?
I have been searching around but all the products/frameworks need native libraries of some kind.

Thank you and have a good day!

JMP supports a lot of file formats in pure Java code, including MPEG-1 and MPEG-2, so it can be done. The only MPEG-4 implementations for Java I'm aware of all use native libraries, though. The http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/OtherOpenSourceProjectsFaq page links to a lot of media libraries in/for Java.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for replying.
Of course I remove JMF from the list because it doesn't support MPEG-4 format.
I may give VLCJ a try, what's about Xuggler?
