Controlling Playback

Once a Media Player is prepared, call start to begin playback of the associated media:

mediaPlayer.start(); Use the stop and pause methods to stop or pause playback.

The Media Player also provides the getDuration method to find the length of the media being played, and getCurrentPosition to find the playback position. Use seekTo to jump to a specific position in the media as shown in Listing 11-7.
