I think I'll take a look when the videos that demo it are not displayed using flash.
Hehe. Well to be fair the "Java FX Ensemble" demos how to play videos, but I doubt it is used anywhere outside a demo. Also the code to show a video wasn't a one-liner... it was over 300 lines of code
Didn't look closer at it, maybe they are doing a whole lot of clever things that I didn't realize.
The ensemble demo also shows a "Warning - security", "Digital signature cannot be verified." when launching.
Pleasant user experience is obviously not a high prio at Oracle...
