JMF for linux fails at the first hurdle

P: n/a
I've got a bit of a problem with the Java Media Framework for linux that
Sun is distributing. I've only just started programming with it and it
doesn't work.

I've got a couple of very simple bare bone applets that create a
medialocator with an url, create a player and start it. Any events that
are incoming are printed out with a time stamp. The code itself works on
my Windows based machine (with the Windows JMF obviously) but here's
what happens on the three separate Linux boxs (on two distros) I tried.

It all goes well until trying to realise (sic)
com.sun.media.content.video.mpeg.Handler@1167162. A Resource Unavailable
and then ControllerClosedEvent events are received until I get an error
: Unable to realize com.sun.media.codec.video.jmpx.Jmpx@c9d92c

Now I simply cannot believe that the Sun Linux JMF is so screwed up that
even the simplest code won't run. Without the Blackdown.org port of JMF
which I believe is unavailable at the moment, I cannot test further.

Anyway, any clues on the problem or how to fix it.
