Interface Summary
CachingControl CachingControl is an interface supported by Players that are capable of reporting download progress.
Clock The Clock interface is implemented by objects that support the Java Media time model.
Codec A Codec is a media processing unit that accepts a Buffer object as its input, performs some processing on the input data, and then puts the result in an output Buffer object.
Control The base interface for processing Control objects.
Controller The Controller interface, which extends Clock, provides resource-allocation state information, event generation, and a mechanism for obtaining objects that provide additional control over a Controller.
ControllerListener ControllerListener is an interface for handling asynchronous events generated by Controllers.
Controls Controls provides an interface for obtaining objects by interface or class name.
DataSink DataSink is the base interface for objects that read media content delivered by a DataSource and render the media to some destination.
DataSinkProxy A DataSinkProxy is a MediaProxy that provides the content type of the DataSink to be created based on its destination MediaLocator.
Demultiplexer A Demultiplexer is a media processing unit that takes an interleaved media stream as input, extracts the individual tracks from the stream, and outputs the resulting tracks.
Drainable This interface would be implemented on a Renderer or Multiplexer plugin if the plugin's internal buffered data can be drained.
Duration The Duration interface provides a way to determine the duration of the media being played by a media object.
Effect An Effect is a media processing unit that takes an input Buffer of data, performs some special-effects processing on the data, and then outputs the data to an output Buffer.
GainChangeListener GainChangeListener is an interface for handling GainChangeEvents generated by GainControls.
GainControl GainControl is an interface for manipulating audio signal gain.
MediaHandler MediaHandler is the base interface for objects that read and manage media content delivered from a DataSource.
Multiplexer A Multiplexer is a media processing unit takes input data from multiple tracks, combines the data into an interleaved container format, then outputs the interleaved data through an output DataSource.
Player Player is a MediaHandler for rendering and controlling time based media data.
PlugIn The base interface for JMF plug-ins.
Prefetchable This interface would be implemented on a Renderer or Multiplexer plugin if it has some internal buffers that require prefetching to minimize startup latency.
Processor The Processor interface defines a module for processing and controlling time-based media data.
Renderer A Renderer is a media processing unit that renders input media to a pre-defined destination, such as the screen or system speaker.
TimeBase A TimeBase is a constantly ticking source of time, much like a crystal.
Track A Track abstracts the information specific to an individual track in a media stream.

Class Summary
AudioDeviceUnavailableEvent An AudioDeviceUnavailableEvent indicates that the Controller could not fetch the audio device.
Buffer A Buffer is a media-data container that carries media data from one processing stage to the next inside of a Player or Processor.
CachingControlEvent This event is generated by a Controller that supports the CachingControl interface.
CaptureDeviceInfo A CaptureDeviceInfo object contains information about a particular capture device.
CaptureDeviceManager CaptureDeviceManager is a manager class that provides access to a list of the capture devices available on a system.
ConfigureCompleteEvent A ConfigureCompleteEvent is posted when a Processor finishes Configuring.
ConnectionErrorEvent A ConnectionErrorEvent is posted when an error occurs within a DataSource when obtaining data or communicating with a server.
ControllerAdapter The event adapter which recieves ControllerEvents and dispatches them to an appropriate stub-method.
ControllerClosedEvent A ControllerClosedEvent describes an event that is generated when an a Controller is closed.
ControllerErrorEvent A ControllerErrorEvent describes an event that is generated when an error condition occurs that will cause a Controller to cease functioning.
ControllerEvent ControllerEvent is the base class for events generated by a Controller.
DataLostErrorEvent A DataLostErrorEvent is posted when a Controller has lost data.
DataStarvedEvent DataStarvedEvent indicates that a Controller has lost data or has stopped receiving data altogether.
DeallocateEvent A DeallocateEvent is posted as an acknowledgement of the invocation of the deallocate method.
DurationUpdateEvent DurationUpdateEvent is posted by a Controller when its duration changes.
EndOfMediaEvent An EndOfMediaEvent indicates that the Controller has reached the end of its media and is stopping.
Format A Format abstracts an exact media format.
GainChangeEvent A GainChangeEvent is posted by a GainControl when its state has been updated.
InternalErrorEvent An InternalErrorEvent indicates that a Controller failed for implementation-specific reasons.
Manager Manager is the access point for obtaining system dependent resources such as Players, DataSources, Processors, DataSinks, the system TimeBase, the cloneable and merging utility DataSources.
MediaEvent MediaEvent is the base interface for media events.
MediaLocator MediaLocator describes the location of media content.
MediaTimeSetEvent A MediaTimeSetEvent is posted by a Controller when its media-time has been set with the setMediaTime method.
PackageManager A PackageManager maintains a persistent store of package-prefix lists.
PlugInManager The PlugInManager is used to search for installed plug-ins and register new plug-ins.
PrefetchCompleteEvent A PrefetchCompleteEvent is posted when a Controller finishes Prefetching.
ProcessorModel Encapsulates the basic information required to create a Processor.
RateChangeEvent A RateChangeEvent is a ControllerEvent that is posted when a Controller's rate changes.
RealizeCompleteEvent A RealizeCompleteEvent is posted when a Controller finishes Realizing.
ResourceUnavailableEvent A ResourceUnavailableEvent indicates that a Controller was unable to allocate a resource that it requires for operation.
RestartingEvent A RestartingEvent indicates that a Controller has moved from the Started state back to the Prefetching state (a Stopped state) and intends to return to the Started state when Prefetching is complete.
SizeChangeEvent Event which indicates that the input video has changed in size and the video renderer needs to be resized to specified size.
StartEvent StartEvent is a TransitionEvent that indicates that a Controller has entered the Started state.
StopAtTimeEvent A StopAtTimeEvent indicates that the Controller has stopped because it reached its stop time.
StopByRequestEvent A StopByRequestEvent indicates that the Controller has stopped in response to a stop call.
StopEvent StopEvent is a ControllerEvent that indicates that a Controller has stopped.
StopTimeChangeEvent A StopTimeChangeEvent is generated by a Controller when its stop time has changed.
SystemTimeBase SystemTimeBase is the implementation of the default TimeBase that ships with JMF.
Time Time is kept at nanosecond precision.
TransitionEvent TransitionEvent is a ControllerEvent that indicates that a Controller has changed state.

Exception Summary
BadHeaderException A BadHeaderException is thrown by a Demultiplexer when getTracks is invoked and the header information is incomplete or inconsistent.
CannotRealizeException A CannotRealizeException is thrown when Manager cannot realize a Player or Processor via the createRealizedPlayer and createRealizedProcessor calls.
