Hi - I am trying to build an application which can ftp and play audio/video files. I am using a FTPClient library which has a method boolean retrieveFile(java.lang.String remote, java.io.OutputStream local) which retrieves a named file from the server and writes it to the given OutputStream. I am using JMF to play files. However, I am unable to figure out how to play the file. But I can play files on the localhost using a method new MediaPlayer().setMediaLocation("file-path"); Can anyone please let me know the way to get file from link the output stream and play it in the player? Thanks! Radha

Make use of DataSource class
or another way is write the file in some temp location locally and play it.
