Writing mpeg's/movie-files with Java

Hello !

Currently I have to construct an extension for an application and I have to write a mpeg movie to a disk.
My problem is that I have no idea where and how to start without writing a complete mpeg encoder :-)
Currently I'm taking a closer look at the Java Media Framework if there are any API-Features that could help me.

I'm working on a network simulation system that uses a collection of Shapes as visualization, represented in a Frame, not an awt.Frame, an abstract kind of simulation Frame, and the whole idea is to write the simulation graphics in a movie-file :-).

It would be very helpfull from you to give me some more sources and ideas how to implement this, or some links to mpeg specifications/implementation examples etc.

Thanks alot & Nice Greetings !


P.S. I think this question is for me very important and I would like to give more points, but currently I have only the 75 points. My last account got lost, so I have lost some points ... :-(

 Take a look here: http://www.ient.rwth-aachen.de/team/crysandt/mpeg7audioenc/ something similar has already been done. You can send an e-mail to the guy who wrote it and ask for the develoepr's manual.

  You can also take a look here: http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/mpeg-4 there is already an API for MPEG decoding written in java.

  And Sun's JMF page: http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jmf/ is always a good place to start as well.
