I want to play video files on my javaFx application.
I converted my video files to fmx files using on2 flix standard (demo version) as it's the only format that is supported on all operating systems.
(I had very little luck encoding to AVI files that could be played by javaFx on Windows).
My application is embedded in a web page but can also be launched (from its jnlp file).
I have a small video that is integrated into my GUI and when the user clicks on it, a bigger window pops-up with a bigger version of the video.
The FXM video files work ok sometimes but most of the time they sporadically crash the application and behave erratically, that is, pause/play/stop don't work and sometimes the sound of the video will play but the image (and application) freezes/crashes.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what to use to play videos within javaFx? I'm not happy with fxm files as they leave a lot to be desired in terms of application robustness and functionality.
