JMF and Web Browsers

Hello Guys,

Please help me from this interesting problem. I have developed a simple applet which plays a movie file using the Java Media Framework API. this works fine on the machine on which I installed but when I tried to access the same from a different machine thru internet it shows some errors like this

Exception occurred during event dispatching:
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: jmutil.dll cannot load because RNIGetCompatibleVersion export not found (new behavior.)
      at java/lang/Runtime.loadLibrary

When I refered to javasoft documentation as to what
UnsatisfiedLinkError is it says
"Thrown if the Java Virtual Machine cannot find an appropriate native-language definition of a method declared native."

I used IE4.0 and netscape Communicator 4.0 on both the machines but I see the problem still.

Any kind of help is greatly appreciated.

thank you,
Murthy Kunala

Did you try running the example applets that comes with the package?
There is a FAQ, trying reading the faq and make sure that the correct dll
are in the correct path as well as classpath.
wat platfomr are u running on.
IF on PC, you might want to take a look at the intel JAva MediaFramework API.
I've no problem running my frame playetr over the network.

Hello alvinwang,

Thanks for your response, I have a couple of more questions.
I don't know what the problem is, I checked the classpath and path variables they are just fine, jmutil.dll file is in \jmf-Beta\lib\ directory and it is included in the classpath.

Interesting thing is I don't see any problem when I installed Intel Media Framework API. While installing it also automatically set the environment variables (classpath and path) as did Java Media Framework API.

(i) I wonder what might be the reason. what should I do to avoid the error (Exception occurred during event dispatching:
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: jmutil.dll cannot load because RNIGetCompatibleVersion export not found (new behavior.) ) with JMF.

(ii) Do we need to have JMF/IMF installed on all the clients to view this player. Or is there any other way? B'cos I had that problem when tested from a different client.

Thank you,
Murthy Kunala

yes. your client need to have IMF installed if you 're viewing on PC.
as a matter of fact, I have both intel and JMF on client machine and
it should bne able to play.if your clients are all PC, then I think it's better to stick to the intel one.
Anyway, which beta version of JMF are u using.
The FAQ says something abt previous version of JMF etc.

Hello alvinwang,

I have installed 'JMF 1.0 Beta 3' on my client, it didn't work so I installed IMF.

It would be so nice of you, If you can just try my sample and let me know if it works.

My sample is @ http://ms214i.cs.okstate.edu/otp/Player/myApplet.htm
( Please enter "replacement.mov" in the testbox and hit 'OK' )

Thank you,
Murthy
