The multimedia support in java sucks, and it's a shame that QTJ is dead because that was a technology that made media in Java real, and now we are taking steps backwards in one of the world's most popular languages. But I wouldn't go as far as Chris does. 
    Some counterexamples: The Jitsi team has done a lot of multimedia with java: https://jitsi.org/     I believe one of the key ingredients to jitsi is FMJ: http://fmj-sf.net/ 
    I don't know exactly how much milage you can get out of that, but you should know about it before you ignore Java.     Another thing to know about is JavaFX, which is a java compatible language with better Multimedia capabilities. My general opinion of JavaFX is low, but it's there and it's something to know about. 
    You should also know about jffmpeg: http://jffmpeg.sourceforge.net/      > quoted text

     yes. QTJ is dead. : - (   > quoted text
     Indeed, I still hear about new Flash projects, but as a language it's dying.     Another option might be something like haxe which, although not great for multimedia per se, does compile down to a variety of platforms which are good for multimedia, including flash.

It doesn't sound like the multimedia capabilities João is looking for are that extreme: "The project requires to capture movies for webcams or another digital devices." Jitsi does that in Java, and if you know java already then Java will be WAY faster to develop in than C++, even with the trouble you'll have getting this to work. At least it's something to consider. If you have a budget, you can also hire the jitsi team to help. 
    I don't know how you would do this in python.     	bjorn

For the last few years, my advice has been:     	Java, media… choose at most one     With Apple running away from Java, leaving QuickTime in 32-bit-only maintenance mode, and warning developers to stop using QTJ all the way back at WWDC 2008, QTJ is clearly a dead technology. [...]

Hi João,     The short answer is "it depends". If you plan to release your application "in the wild" for users on machines that you haven't specifically configured, QTJ is a bad choice. If you're doing a personal project or something inhouse, you might try it. [...]



Quicktime for Java Fate
From: João Santos

Hello Guys,     I'm a Software Engineer from Brazil. I trying to figure technologies for my next project. The project requires to capture movies for webcams or another digital devices. It's required a solution for Windows and MAC. 

    So for that my first choice is to try make a simple software to both systems.  I'm looking for Java or Pyhton tools for that.     So a cross the Quicktime for Java but a notice that is a deprecated solution. So what came to replace it? What are you using for that? 

    Any help will be welcome.     Cheers,    --
