      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      This is a follow-up to JDK-8150503 and an upstream bug report for https://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/2089

      As per Quality Outreahc, please add josm-found label to this report.

      We're using JavaFX Media to play MP3 files. Ubuntu 16.10 and 17.04 use libavcodec 57 (https://packages.ubuntu.com/zesty/libavcodec57).

      It appears OpenJFX does not support libav 57 out of the box as we needed to create a symilnk to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libavcodec.so to make the MP3 playback work.

      Support for libav 57 should be added.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      To make OpenJFX able to play MP3 on latest version of Ubuntu.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      OpenJFX recognizes libavcodec57
      ACTUAL -
      Package libavcodec57 not recognized

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      create symlink to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libavcodec.so

          This needs to be done for JDK 10 and then backported to a JDK 9 and JDK 8 update release.
