Question about JMF FrameAccess.java Example?

Hello,

The JMF sun pages, includes a FrameAccess.java example.

When I tested the example it seemed to display most of the frames, but misses quite a few in the middle.

The file is here:

http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jmf/2.1.1/solutions/FrameAccess.java

I just wondered if anyone knew of a jmf function to make sure when the frames are output, the example displays all the frames?

Thanks

Do you keep asking this question?

I don't think anyone knows the answer...

JMF is only a reference implementation, and it doesn't seem to be very well supported by Sun..

And as described here:

http://weblogs.java.net/blog/mason/archive/2005/04/jmf_wherefor_ar.html

There aren't really any alternatives :-(

Do you know of any other third party companies which provide software to capture frames from a video in Java?

TimYatesCommented:
I don't....  someone else might, but as it said in that blog I linked to:

-----------------

Well, that's fine, because Sun's reference implementation of JMF is just that, a reference implementation... somebody out there has to be writing a commercial-quality implementation of the spec, right? Well, ignoring the fact that people are perfectly happy to use the reference implementations of Java APIs in production environments (Tomcat, for example), the answer is no... There are currently no implementations that I (or anyone I've asked, including Senor Google) am aware of.

I just thought I would post this morning to try and attract some reply.

I donot think anyone perhaps has the answer, should I delete the question?

TimYatesCommented:
I think the answer is that JMF is as good as it gets, and you're probably not going to be able to solve the frame skipping issue :-(

TimYatesCommented:
Of course, someone else might come along over the next couple of days, and prove me wrong...

I'd leave this open for a bit, and see if anything comes of it...

Could I ask a different question?

I wondered if you had any examples of how to use the Java sound classes, so I can play a .wav file?

Hi EmailSurfer, you will need to ask this as a new question

(http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Java/askQuestion.jsp)

Thanks!

I just thought it might be easier than use this question space, rather than deleting this question and having to wait fours days before it's deleted.

TimYates, would you be-able to delete this question?

TimYatesCommented:
Errr..  

I'm confused...  

EmailSurfer, this is AntoniRyszard656's question...

Are you one and the same?

They are different accounts, I work with my friend on a lot of small problems.

My apologies for asking a second question, I think my original JMF question will not be answered and will try have the question deleted.

I did answer the question...

The answer (unfortunately) is that "JMF is only a reference implementation, and it doesn't seem to be very well supported by Sun.."
