Description rvojta 2005-10-17 16:50:36 UTC
Java Media Framework should be detected automatically. ignores
both environment variables JMFHOME and CLASSPATH. If I set JMFHOME and start, Media Player can't play multimedia files. If I add jmf.jar to
the CLASSPATH variable, same behavior.

If I want to have working Media Player, I have to add the jmf.jar via Tools -
Options - - Java - ...

It doesn't sound like user friendly solution.

Media Player should display a dialog with information about missing JMF.
