Now On Ubuntu Too... NetBeans Movie Player

Now figured it out on Ubuntu. Same idea as on Windows, but the JMF part is tricky again. Needed are JMF and Jffmpeg. For the NetBeans side of the story, things are much simpler. Just download the Movie Player Module Template that I uploaded to the plugin portal earlier today. Install the template once you've opened it in the IDE, assuming you've set up JMF (and so on) correctly, you'll be able to watch movies on Ubuntu 7.04 (and probably earlier/different Linux distributions too), after installing the module in the NetBeans Platform:

Plus, if you install the module right inside the IDE, you'll be able to watch movies right inside the IDE.

    That's pretty cool. I'll have to try it out. Will it work on Netbeans 6 Preview?
