[vorbis-dev] Java Development

I'm also looking into creating JNI wrappers for the Vorbis libraries. JNI
really makes the most sense as it will be able to take advantage of the
latest advances without re-porting source to Java. I may be creating a JNI
wrapper today and creating the Win32 DLLs for it to link to.
If you're looking for decode only you can check into the pure Java JOrbis.
It doesn't seem to use much more CPU than the previous WinAmp plugin. You
can use it with JMF to play on JMF supported platforms (haven't got the iMac
to work with it yet.)
