I would like some advice on how to create a media player that allows a user to select a file of MPEG or AVI and provides play and stop buttons whilst playing the file in a window.

Any advice on whether to use Swing or AWT or how to begin really would be very much appreciated.
Please bear in mind that I am rather new to Java so as simple and much information as possible would be great.

Perhaps that was closed by the questioner himself. Maybe that he found a complete solution in one of the links I posted.
