    Default Playing Songs in Java

    Hey everybody I'm new here and am looking for a package / addon / relatively simple way to play songs within my program. Nothing too fancy, simple yet effective. I tried the JMF (Java Media Framework) but it's pretty dated hah, is there a more up to date utility I can use to play audio, particularly one with GUI controls?

    Have you tried the sound API? Been a while since I've used it but recall it being fairly straightforward to play sound.

    I threw together an applet that plays a song, you can view it and its source here: Little Bird, Fly Away

    copeg / Kevin, thanks for those examples. What I'm really looking for is something where I could implement play / pause buttons, a time position slider and other components a standard media player would feature. Does the sound API offer these features, or would they be relatively easy to implement myself? I'm really just getting into this want to write a basic media player.

    I'm not sure, what have you tried? I know the program I posted supports playing/pausing.

    To be honest I haven't tried much yet, just the JMF. I'll post my results with the Sound API soon (I hope) though
