Play flash video in Java

Is there a good solution on how to play flash video (.flv) files in Java?
So far I've tried FOBS4JMF and I can play the audio from a flash video file but I can't display the video. Anyone know if it is possible to play flash video files in Java? It would be really great if it is possible. If it doesn't work, is there some other solution you can recommend?

I managed to get it to play the video sequence from .flv files. I think the problem was that the flash video files was using an unsupported video codec for the files that I couldn't play.
The files that did work used the H.263 video codec. Now I just have to make sure that all the .flv files I want to play use that codec (if it really turns out to be the solution for my problem).
I hope this might help some other poor souls that encounter the same problem as me with tearing the hair for this problem and hopefully there will be a pure Java solution for this in the future.
