I just wanted to let you know that I've started a project on
sourceforge with the
goal of providing a useful/small/efficient.. java binding for xine.
Basically, all I wanted to have was to be able to build a home
theater system in
java but failed to utilize the main video players (mplayer,vlc and
from java. After looking around, xine was the only one that at least
a clean API and a simple example (muxine.c) which shows how to build
based on xine & muxine, I've used SWIG to wrap the complete xine api
and started to write
minimal c code to support X11 and Mac OS X window handling and such.
by this, it should be possible to use the whole xine api without
writing a complete
wrapper/layer on top of it. this can be done for convenience, but I
try to keep it simple.
In the end, it should be possible to use xine for movies/music from java
without knowing which OS and/or java vm is beneath (basic java idea).
considering the multimedia API just discussed here, I'll first try to
stay close to
the originial xine api, but there's no reason no to add such an API
the basic work will be front-end code for different platforms.
there's not much of documentation or web site, but the ReadMe.txt
should provide a first running demo.
If someone wants to join, just drop me a note.. :)

Limmbo was a very promising system based in java using xine-lib. It may
provide ideas or even some reference code.
I'll take a look at it. when I started I couldn't find much useful
stuff on java and multimedia.
JMF by Sun does not work, and other's approaches to wrap e.g. ffmpeg
into JMF did not
work well when I tried. let's see if mine will work and people use it.
