[platform-dev] obtain a X11 Display handle from a swt widget in linux


I'm looking for a way to play video media in a SWT interface.  I was
looking for JMF (java media framework) but it is slow on my computer.

So I discovered FFMPEG, a codec library.  They provide a little
application called ffplay which uses the plugin and play video files
in a X11 Window.  They use X11 Display.  Is it possible to go deep in
the implementation of SWT to obtain a X11 Display?

I know the application will not be multi platform if I do that, but
for the moment it is ok for me.

If I can't, is there a way to play video media using ffmpeg in a swt
interface without using JMF?
