I have released version 0.11 of the Scenic graphics library. The new version includes support for playing videos. The video support is implemented using DirectShow so it only works on Windows. Otherwise the library works (or should work) on Linux too. You can see the new homepage at:http://www.sceniclibrary.org/
You can try the webstarthttp://www.sceniclibrary.org/jar/scenic.jnlp
The library works on Windows and Linux. There are some compatibility problems especially with older graphics cards, so it may not work on your system. I will propably add support for gstreamer in the future.
