I am currently using the JWPlayer which is working great, for flash videos. I have followed some other posts on here and adopted the use of gwt2swf and it's widgets but as the name implies, there are some restrictions.

With flash videos fading into the background and the demand for HTML5 compatible videos on the rise I need our program to be compatible with the future, at least the near future.

Is there a way that I can add the JWPlayer to a widget, such as a LayoutContainer, without having to use the SWFWidget from gwt2swf? More importantly, will this fix my error of only playing the video as flash?

I've settled on just using the GWT Video component when an HTML5 browser is compatible and falling back on flash when it is not available.

Please disregard.
