Hi all, I am Chaitanya, I want to learn live video streaming using java. What I am thinking is I need to write a client-server program. The client connects to the server and server sends the video packets. A person will be giving a lecture and the video cam will be recording it. Video cams are connected to USB port, but java does not support USB api on windows. How to do this? can anyone help me from where to start.

I will be thankful to you people a lot and thanks in advance. Have a good day.


Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

@Martin: Hi, I dint yet start working with JMF. Many days back I have run a sample code. The articles in the web sites said it can play .avi files also. The player wasn't able to play. It only played .mp3 files. So I left.

If you want to really do with me I am always ready. You can ping me on my yahoo messenger. You can find it in my profile. We shall have a discussion and we will start.

Really? The numerous libraries linked in the JavaIoFaq lead me to believe otherwise.
