    Default Help installing a downloaded 'addon'

    Hello,

    I'm really new to java, and I'm having some trouble installing an 'add on'. (I'm not sure of the actual name for this type of file :P). Anyway, it's the Freedom for Media package, and when I download it I get a zip file. When I unzip it I have a folder that's full of things (not just .jar files). I"m not sure what to do with this so I can start using it's classes etc :\ The file includes folders like applet.example, build.xml, doc, fmj.jar, src, lib, native, fmjstudio.bat, logging.properties, etc. The readme file is of no help to me, and neither is their forums or any other documentation. I can't seem to find anything that shows me how to install this, and I"m starting to get really lost.

    With JMF I could just drag the .jar to the java extension folder...but do I just do the same with this large file?

    Thanks for helping :)

    I'm completely new to using Java. Just started a week or so ago so haven't graduated too far from terminal programs ;P How would I do that for a folder? Hmm..I guess what I'm asking is what do I even do with this in the first place? I would love to use the project properties (I use eclipse if that helps) but I have no idea what I would add with the Project properties lol...I'm a total noob with this so please..dumb it down as far as you can stand for me if you don't mind.

    I have the folder on my desktop and the willingness to use the contents...that's about as far as I am right now :P
