To play a video in JavaFX on Linux, you can follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you have Java Development Kit (JDK) installed on your Linux machine.
  2. Download and extract the JavaFX SDK, which includes the necessary libraries for working with media.
  3. Set up the JavaFX environment variables by adding the following lines to your bashrc or bash_profile file: export PATH_TO_FX=/path/to/javafx-sdk-X.X.X/lib export PATH=$PATH:$PATH_TO_FX export CLASSPATH=$PATH_TO_FX/jfxrt.jar:$CLASSPATH
  4. Compile and run the JavaFX program using the javac and java commands. Here's a simple example that plays a video file: import javafx.application.Application; import javafx.scene.Scene; import; import; import; import javafx.stage.Stage; public class VideoPlayer extends Application { @Override public void start(Stage primaryStage) { String videoPath = "file:///path/to/video.mp4"; Media media = new Media(videoPath); MediaPlayer mediaPlayer = new MediaPlayer(media); MediaView mediaView = new MediaView(mediaPlayer); primaryStage.setScene(new Scene(mediaView, 800, 600));;; } public static void main(String[] args) { launch(args); } } Replace /path/to/video.mp4 with the actual path to your video file.
  5. Compile the JavaFX program using the following command: javac --module-path $PATH_TO_FX --add-modules javafx.controls,
  6. Run the JavaFX program using the following command: java --module-path $PATH_TO_FX --add-modules javafx.controls, VideoPlayer This will launch a window with the video playing in it.

Make sure you have the necessary codecs installed on your Linux machine to play the video file.
