I'm am trying to use the jaco mp3 player library to play mp3 files.

Please reference site: Jaco Examples
Examples 1 -6 play the sound for second but Example7 plays the all my files.

Can you somebody help me figure this out? I am a complete newbie when it comes to programming and I am trying to learn.

I would like to use the player or windows media player to play url mp3 files from a website.

import jaco.mp3.player.MP3Player;

import java.io.File;

public class Example1 {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    new MP3Player(new File("test.mp3")).play();
  }

}

Open in new window


The above code played sound for a second on my system.

import jaco.mp3.player.MP3Player;
import jaco.mp3.player.plaf.MP3PlayerUICompact;

import java.io.File;
import java.net.URL;

import javax.swing.BorderFactory;
import javax.swing.JFrame;

public class Example7 {

  public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

    // MP3Player.setDefaultUI(MP3PlayerUICompact.class);

    //

    MP3Player player = new MP3Player();

    player.setRepeat(true);

    player.addToPlayList(new File("test.mp3"));
    player.addToPlayList(new File("test2.mp3"));
    player.addToPlayList(new File("test3.mp3"));
    player.addToPlayList(new URL("http://server.com/mp3s/test4.mp3"));

    //

    player.setBorder(BorderFactory.createEmptyBorder(50, 100, 50, 100));

    JFrame frame = new JFrame("MP3 Player");
    frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    frame.getContentPane().add(player);
    frame.pack();
    frame.setLocationRelativeTo(null);
    frame.setVisible(true);
  }

}

Open in new window


The above code works fine on my pc.

CEHJ, I'm not sure. I used my personal mp3 files.

Please attach test.mp3

Commented:
I can not attach the mp3 file because it is not an acceptable file to upload. This is the message that I receive from the upload tool.

Try this link:
mp3 file

If link does not work, copy and paste into browser: http://sourceforge.net/p/jacomp3player/code/HEAD/tree/JACo%20MP3%20Player%20v3/resources/bosco.mp3

I tried it on a separate thread. Made no difference for me (silence)

Received some insight from another programmer that the code I found from Mr Xymon allows the music player to operate on its own thread. This makes things easier.
