There are a couple of ways to start jOggPlayer
- Webstart jOggPlayer
- Double click on the downloaded jOggPlayer.jar file.
- This works with "out of the box"
with the windoze and Mac OS X Java VMs and UN*X and OS/2 if you have jar
file associated with the java executable.
- Double Click / run one of the included jOggPlayer script files to
customize the startup
- Un*x/Linux - Shell jOggPlayer.sh and/or a joggplayer.desktop file
- Windoze - Batch jOggPlayer.bat
- Windoze NT - Batch jOggPlayer_Winnt.bat
- Mac OS X - jOggPlayer.OSX.command or jOggPlayer.term
- OS/2 - Batch jOggPlayer.cmd or jOggPlayerJava2.cmd
- OS/2 Java 2 - jOggPlayerJava2.cmd that runs it using the Java13 VM if you
have both 1.1.8 and 1.3 JVM it installed.
See the comments in the java2.cmd and jOggPlayerJava2.cmd file
behind a firewall...
They should run without modifications.
These allow the added feature of letting *you* add commandline parameters;
such as specifying some ogg files or URLs to load on startup, or a directory
to search and recurse to load ALL ogg files.
directly run it as specified in the usage below.
- use the above script files and add the required
information that I have outlined in the usage below.
- (email me if you have problems)
java -classpath "PATH_TO\jOggPlayer.jar" ca.bc.webarts.jOggPlayer [file location]
java -jar .\jOggPlayer.jar [file location]
where [file location] can be:
a URL to a ogg file
a directory name to recurse for ogg files
If you are behind a firewall and need to get access to files outside the proxy you have to set some environment
vars before you run the jOggPlayer:
OR on the commandline
java -DproxySet=true -DproxyHost=YourProxyServerHostname
ca.bc.webarts.jOggPlayer [file/URL location]
Auto Updating Version (only in 1.1 release)
This feature is deprecated... Use the Java WebStart to accomplish the same thing.
This version will automatically check if there is a newer version of the code (Jar file) on
this server and download it.
If there isn't a newer version, it uses the already
downloaded one on your computer.
Simply unzip the AutoUpdating zip file into your jOggPlayer
directory and run
java -jar AutoUpdatingJOggPlayer.jar
or if you are
behind a FIREWALL
java -DproxySet=true -DproxyHost=YourProxyServerHostname -DproxyPort=YourProxyServerPort -jar AutoUpdatingJOggPlayer.jar
