After playing around with Sprout more over the afternoon, I ran into some of its shortcomings. Then again, I am not sure anyone intended it for trying to create multimedia packages, only small widgets.
I ran into trouble when I wanted to use html within a text box (which has the option to include a scroll bar). Without being able to add html into the text box, I can’t add a collection of videos or photo galleries that users can scroll through.
Still, for the ease of use, I can imagine all sorts of uses for promotion of videos, galleries and special sections.
