JavaFX video on Linux (GStreamer/WEBM/V8)

June 23, 2010

My JavaFX book co-author, Jim Clarke, has JavaFX animations and video working on Linux using Google's open-source WEBM/V8 framework. Since Linux's GStreamer was open-sourced at the same time, Jim was able to modify and build all of the components necessary for JavaFX to work with. In the end, to test, Jim got JavaFX to play YouTube content, which Google is in the process of converting to WEBM. Check it all out on Jim's blog http://javafxplace.blogspot.com

Jim describes the JavaFX architecture for video, the steps he followed to get this all working, and some sample code to show how you can use all of this in your own JavaFX applications.

Happy coding! -EJB
