To me this sounds again like a Java/JavaFX specific solution which, to 
my opinion, is a dead-end road. I think it would be much more important 
that JavaFX can directly use all system installed codecs. I simply don't 
understand why it is possible to install a codec pack on a machine and 
almost all software, with the exception of JavaFX, is able to 
immediately use that and only JavaFX based applications are not.
