This sounds like a job for Java Media Framework (JMF).
(as a starting point anyway)

Thanks a lot for the link, The Java Media Framework is really good,
I wanted to know if the H264 encoding is possible in Java for video streams. I believe H264 encoding is the latest and most effecient encoding standard. Formats supported by the JMF 2.0 ..are H261 and H263..
can they be used instead of H264?
