What's the easiest way to embed a video into a specific part of an image map?

Anybody help? Is there a way to do this in Dreamweaver?

    One way would be to create your image map first. Then, use the CSS property position to position the div containing the video player relative to the image map or absolute to the page (depending on how your website layout is).

     

    Then, use an event listener (javascript) to enable the div holding the video player to show only when the specific area on the image map is clicked.

    Or, you could invoke the player page to launch  inside a modal or lightbox window like Fancybox.  See the YouTube example near the bottom of this link:
