hi faisal siraj ,

you can run media player by two ways
1 using processbuilder object this works only with java1.5

PrcocessBuilder pb=new ProcessBuilder("spceify path of wmplayer");
now call (i am not explaining other features of processbuilder like how to set directory and how to set environment variable because i also dont know and no one from java ranch explain me!!! )
pb.start();
it will start media palyer

start method returns process object using this object you can controll that process like closing ,destroying etc.

for java1.4

use runtime class
code
Runtime r=Runtime.getRuntime();
now usig this runtime object call exe method
r.exec("specify path of wmpalyer");

ok by....
