What level of Audio/Video support for BrownShoes/JRuby

What level of Audio/Video support for BrownShoes/JRuby

I notice that audio support is *vaguely* indicated in The Manual.

"Shoes supports embedding of QuickTime, Flash video (FLV), DivX, Xvid and
various other popular video formats."

I will be looking into ffmpeg and VideoLan.

For Audio, how would it be to support .wav, .aiff, .au ?
Specifically, this means leaving out .ogg and .mp3

Thoughts?

Once, a long time ago, I made a small MP3 player with JRuby. I suppose
it would work in Brown Shoes.
It used an external library for media playback (not ffmpeg), but I
can't recall it's name now. It's support was rather limited, though.
I'll try to find it later, when I get home, and post something here.

Thanks.  It's a confusing and splintered support topic in Java.

Your example will be greatly appreciated!

We were using VLC and compiling it into shoes, but the interfaces
changed, it was really fragile, so we ripped it out.

Having it back in someday, in some form, would be great.

I have a sample that plays .wav, .aiff, .mp3, and .ogg, all threaded and
simultaneously (driven by buttons ;)

Just need to fixup a bug in SwtShoes::Button.  :(
