This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
I've got a large number of avi videos that i want to display using the java media framework. In the documentation i find that the framework supports avi files. However, it seems like it can't handle the type of avi-files that I've got, because when i try running my program, i error messages like this: Unable to handle format: CRAM, 452x452, FrameRate=4.0, Length= 0 1024 extra bytes
If the java mediaplayer can't handle my avi format, i can't use it. Does anyone know why this avi format isn't supported (what is cram?), and what can i do ? (I would rather not convert the avi's to another format). Will this format be supported in the future, does anyone know?
I have run into similar problems. Some of my .avi files play while others don't. I believe it has to do with .avi files that use compression - JMF out of the box does not support playback of any movies that are compressed.
