The Java Media Framework API (JMF) enables audio, video and other time-based media to be added to applications and applets built on Java technology. This optional package, which can capture, playback, stream, and transcode multiple media formats, extends the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE) for multimedia developers by providing a powerful toolkit to develop scalable, cross-platform technology.
See our demos page for applets that present media using JMF technology. See also our diagnostics page for troubleshooting tips and an applet that can detect whether JMF software is set up correctly on your system and your browser is compatible.
