Hardware Requirements

  • 166 MHz Pentium, 160 MHz PowerPC, or 166 MHz UltraSparc
  • 32 MB RAM or greater
  • Optional: An appropriate sound card for audio play back, if necessary. For example, a SoundBlaster-compatible card for Windows machines without built-in audio support, or an Ultimedia sound card for AIX machines without built-in audio support.

Installation Instructions

  1. Download the version of JMF you want to install by selecting a download format and and clicking the continue button.

    The downloaded file is an executable. For Windows, it's an InstallShield executable; for Solaris, it's a self-extracting shell script; otherwise it's a generic zip file.

  2. If you are installing the JMF Performance Pack for Windows

    • Run the executable by double-clicking on the
      jmf-2_1_1e-windows-i586.exe

      NOTE: The Windows installation program automatically detects whether or not Netscape Communicator 4.03 or later is installed and then installs JMF for its use! If you are using Netscape Communicator 4.04 or 4.05, then you must install the JDK 1.1 patch for Netscape Communicator before you can run any JMF applets. Netscape Communicator 4.06 or greater already supports JDK 1.1 without the patch.

    If you are installing the JMF Performance Pack for Solaris SPARC

    • Change directories to the install location.
    • Run the command % /bin/sh ./jmf-2_1_1e-solaris-sparc.bin

    If you are installing the JMF Performance Pack for Linux

    • Change directories to the install location.
    • Run the command % /bin/sh ./jmf-2_1_1e-linux-i586.bin

    If you are installing a zip file

    • Run the appropriate zip command for your system, e.g. winzip or unzip to extract JMF onto your system.

  3. IMPORTANT: You must finish setting up JMF by following the setup instructions included in the JMF Implementation Documentation.
