    JMF on Raspberry Pi

    998119
      I have a proyect running on linux x86 using JMF

      The app uses JMF to play videos of phisical workout in a gym. Im trying to port the app to a Raspberry Pi running raspbian
      My problem is that the JMF has binary libs to decode the media

      Is there any way to get those libs for armv6 of the raspberry pi ?
      is the source open to try do it myself ?

      Thanks in advance

          JMF is abandoned. Its not even a good idea to use it on a PC.
          is the source open to try do it myself ?
          I think there used to be a java.net project for it, but I can't find it. Anyway wikipedia lists quite a few alternatives you should investigate in stead.

            I know it is abandoned, this is no new project.
            Im trying FMJ also as an alternative to rewrite de app, but just in case im asking

              I really don't understand why you want to ask futile questions. Its abandoned and ancient - the fact that you know that makes it even more strange that you want to pursue it anyway.

              Even though it is less outdated, you may also note that FMJ hasn't been updated in a while too.

              "Last updated : Oct, 2007"

              And the forums are also pretty dead:

              http://sourceforge.net/p/fmj/discussion/546432

              I don't know about you, but I make hard decisions based on such information. If you run into issues I see near zero chance that it will ever be fixed. I tend to stick only to APIs and frameworks which are actually still actively maintained.
