A long shot, but do any of you Java programmers think an applet that uses JMF can be deployed and run on a client that doesn't have JMF installed?
I think the chances would be higher if instead of an applet, a Java Web Start application was used instead. Bundling the JMF libraries could work, but there hasn't been any report of success as far as I can find. (It is possible with a full-blown Java application though.)
Any leads at all would be good. In the meantime I will be trying this out myself.
