Hello, it's me again. :)

I'd like to play animated files in my Java Application. Such formats as: .GIF, .AVI, .WAV.
Unless there's a rather easy way to do this already, are there any recommended packages to use?

Any other info is much appreciated. :)

Thanks in advance,

Just put such an animated gif in a JLabel and your movie is ready.
Avi's must be converted as far as I know.
.wav is a sound matter: the other door please, but truely supported.

Woops, sorry, I ment ".MOV" (very easy to make that mistake :P hehe). But, don't worry about the format.

So, if I place an animated GIF into a JLabel, it will play the animation? :) (cool!)

>"Avi's must be converted as far as I know."
Could you elaborate a bit please? What sort of conversion must be made, and how do I make this conversion?
