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, 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?
