The best thread I have found on this: http://www.jmonkeyengine.com/jmeforum/index.php?topic=2908.0



I would like to say I am also very interested in playing movies, and would appreciate any news on this front.

it seems pretty complicated for just playing a movieā€¦dont we have some sort of built in classes?

No, although simple playback functionality is planned to be supported in Java 7, it will probably have some drawbacks, like no integration with jME and requirement to have the correct codec(s).

Doing some research I think that the best way is to use OpenAL together with Ogg Theora codec (cortado - java port).
