jar files that can read video and audio meta data

Hi all, I am looking for a lightweight jar library that allows me to read video and audio meta data.

I wanted to read data like:
1.Video bitrate
2.Video framerate
3.Video format and codec
4.Video size (width X height)
5.Audio channels
6.Audio format
7.Audio bitrate and sampling rate

These are the video and audio formats I will be working with - mp4, mpeg, wmv, avi, wm, midi, wma, mp3, aiff, au and wav

I have google it so far, i cant find any jar files that allow me to do.
So far I have come across these postings:
1. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7142645/java-library-to-check-video-if-its-1080p-720p-etc
2. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2168472/media-information-extractor-for-java

However, the solutions provided are not what I am looking for. It will require an installation of the program before you can use the jar files.

So are there any jar files available that allow me to read the video and audio meta data?

In my opinion there is no direct solution from java you should take help of third party tool like FFMPEG. Write a native method which will call third party tool get the metadata.

The reason is the amount of satisfaction which we get through food is of only one minute or two. But the satisfaction which we can get through the knowledge is of life long.
