Ofcourse it's possible. You can program anything with Java. If nobody else has programmed it before, you can program it yourself. If you want to do that then you'll have to gather information on video file formats and find out how and where the data is stored in the files you want to analyze.

Maybe you can use JMF for this: http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jmf/index.jsp

You might also be able to use JVLC or QuickTime for Java.

Thanks !!
but I want something which will be very generic and will have support for .avi,.mp4, .swf , .wmv, .rm , .qt, .3gp files.


It should atleast work for Windows video files ...

I don't think the RealMedia format is supported by anything but the RealMedia software (for which -as far as I know- no Java client library is available). The others should be accessible by one of the libraries mentioned; you may have to use more than one.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
