New 14.9 Arduino GUI overhaul

admin's picture

Whoa.. it all became clear now.  The folks who created the first Arduino IDE, gutted Processing and changed the "export to applet" to compile & upload to an Arduino board.  That is why there are so many Java file references and other applet related amalgams.  Time to hack & stich it up more !

I'm Creating new Content-Type "Service" which should be the ultimate source for info, examples, & help regarding MRL Services.

I added a required Icon which will be the graphical depiction of the Service. Currently they are displaying on Android, but I have not put them in the Swing gui (yet)..

FFMPEG WEBM JMF Java & other video streaming information

Some Interesting links on Video Streaming and Java.

I'm really disappointed by the lack of support and large amount of frustration with JMF.  This was Sun's initial stab at implementation or standards of implementation.  No one appeared to use it, and now it seems to have lost all support or future development.
