I want to develop a video conferencing application using java. I started going through JMF and found that its gateway to world of Media using Java. But I still have few questions.
#1 Where can I get optimised JMF version for linux.
#2 I can see that, JMF is still an evollving technology and so we need to make use of lots of custom plugins. I am just wondering whether any of you know any resources for plugins and their source codes for various media formats.
#3 Do you have any idea how to go about designing the architecture for enabling Video conferencing uisng JMF or if you have one in place and if you can give an insight into that, that would be a great help.
#4 I would like to know if any body out here/there meddled with JMF and developed applications so that I can have a first hand mentor.
#5 Are there any free / commercial JMF based Video conferencing applications out there working?
#6 Are there any useful resources out there which help me in my adventure with JMF.

What a coincidence! I am wrestling against JMF by myself as well. My interest lies on an Audio conference. It is intended for owners of a DSL line.
So far I have done a prototype to comunicate between two computers. It works on a LAN, but I need someone in the Net for testing it through the ADSL routers.
Dou you already have the resource?
JMF software documentation
Specially the demos at the JMF Solutions url.

SCJP2. Please Indent your code using UBB Code
