I am new to JMF.
I need to embed a player in html to render a video stream of H.264 codec. I went through the following link http://grack.com/downloads/school/enel619.10/report/java_media_framework.html, and added the below lines between html tags then saved the file as test.html.

<APPLET CODE=PlayerApplet WIDTH=320 HEIGHT=300>
<PARAM NAME=FILE VALUE="sparkle2.mpeg">
</APPLET>

But if i try to open the html file I got an error. Below I pasted the JavaConsole information.

java.io.IOException: Permission Denied: From an applet cannot read media file with extension mpeg
java.io.IOException: Permission Denied: From an applet cannot read media file with extension mpeg
Got exception javax.media.NoPlayerException: Error instantiating class: com.sun.media.protocol.file.DataSource : java.io.IOException: Permission Denied: From an applet cannot read media file with extension mpeg
java.lang.NullPointerException
      at PlayerApplet.start(PlayerApplet.java:47)
      at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2Manager$AppletExecutionRunnable.run(Unknown Source)
      at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)
Exception: java.lang.NullPointerException

You need to load the media file with the following technique
getClass().getResourceAsStream(getParameter("FILE"));

Open in new window

That's what is written in this article:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_Media_Framework

Many JMF developers have complained that the JMF implementation supplied in up-to-date JRE's supports relatively few up-to-date codecs and formats. Its all-Java version, for example, cannot play MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Windows Media, RealMedia, most QuickTime movies, Flash content new

and if you want to use an applet to access files on the local disk then you'll need to sign its jars

hello @CHEJ,

I did not change any thing to work with .avi format. I simply used .avi file instead of .mpeg file.
