When is it possible to use the mark()-method on a stream, i.e. how do I have to define (new?) a stream to be able to set a mark in it? I have a stream that I want to scroll back in (it is a movie with frames). It would be great if you could go back to the previous frame(picture) in the stream by having set the mark at the beginning and, reset() to the mark and skip to the correct oofset (i.e. the previous picture).

It all depends which particular subclass of lang.io.InputStream or of lang.io.Reader is in question.  BufferedReader, for example, does support marking and so its markSupported() always returns true.

If the class of the stream which feeds you frames does not support marking, you might consider wrapping it with a BufferedInputStream object.

OK, thanks for your answer. I found that the RandomAccessFile-class with its seek(offset)-method will work out for me.
