Project Description


I need to play a .mov video with transparency over a .jpg picture. I am using JMF in a Java application for that purpose. I could probably use a better media library, but this is the one that I know well, so I would only change it for another if absolutely necessary.

Recently I found out that JMF only supports the [url removed, login to view] codec, while transparency requires the [url removed, login to view] codec. It seems like some tricks exist to natively play the video, as explained on the following links:

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

I would be deeply grateful if someone with experience in this subject could provide a short sample piece of code which can be executed in order to ensure a proper working application on both Windows and Linux (Ubuntu) systems.
