JSP is merely a server-side templating mechanism to format HTML pages to send to the browser. So you would play video in a JSP the same way that you would any other HTML page. This topic has accordingly been moved to the HTML forum.

Swing is a proper noun.

Simply, write the next...

<EMBED SRC="filename.???" loop="1" height="??" width="??" autostart="true"></EMBED>

this will open in whatever the users defualt player is for that format. If its an .avi or .mpeg it will open in media player is its a .ram or something it will open in real player etc..
have fun...

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
