How do you put a video into a post/page currently?
The same code should work in a text widget... or perhaps try this plugin:
The code I use now is [video_lightbox_vimeo5 video_id=# width=640 height=480 anchor="name of graphic"] and it works great on regular pages, just not in the widget areas of the home page.
I actually gave up trying for this website and did something else but it would be nice to know for the future.

You can try this and see if that allows you to use shortcodes in widgets:
