Audio/Video streaming?

Does javax.sound.sampled.spi.AudioFileReader provide functions to actually play an audio file, or do I have to find a way to play the file, if I were to write an MP3 player? MP3s do not seem to be supported by the AudioFileReader, however, I have seen implementations of MP3 players in Java, so, how do you think they might have gone about the implementation?

Does Java provide support for streaming videos, such as flash movies?

Do you have complete source code(s) for MP3 players?

Did you read the list of methods in AudioFileReader? Has it got any playing methods?
No, we don't have complete code.

I think this is too difficult a question for "beginning", so I shall move it.

By the way: AudioFileReader appears not to be an interface.
I agree. Here's the link:
