Hi all,

Just wondering if there is any standard support for video playback in an Eclipse application. I thought there might be something similar to org.eclipse.swt.browser.Browser (e.g. org.eclipse.swt.media.MediaPlayer) but I could not find anything.

I'm sure I could use the Browser class to host a page containing a video, but it would be nice if there was a dedicated media playback component.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Greg

Hi Greg,

SWT doesn't offer this. The closest you could get would be to use OLE to
embed an available player, as demonstrated in the snippets linked below.
The obvious problem with this is that it won't work on non-Windows
platforms.
