Widget Browser Does Not Work

I have the Adobe CC Suite and Dreamweaver CS5.5 and everything is included, however whenever I'm making a webpage and I'm trying to use the widget browser it does not work. I have tried re-installing Dreamweaver and the wideget browser and it does not work, I am signed into Adobe Exchange and everything. I looked at all the other forums about this and none of thos solutions worked out for me. I also could not find the Widget Browser forum so I posted it here because they are intergrated!

And help would be great!

    To be honest, I haven't used the Widget Browser for a long time. Most of the widgets in there are outdated and nothing (AFAIK) has been updated for years.   Use jQuery instead.

    You don't need a widget for this.  HTML5 <video> is a web standard supported by all modern browsers/devices.  Simply copy & paste the following code into a new, blank document.   Change sample videos to your own.



    <!doctype html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML5 with Video</title>
    <!--[if lt IE 9]>
    <script src=""></script>
    <!--begin video-->
    <video width="500" height="325" poster="Your_poster_image.jpg" controls>
    <!--these are legitimate 6 sec, sample videos for testing purposes.-->
    <source src="" type="video/webm">
    <source src="" type="video/ogg">
    <source src="" type="video/mp4">
    NOTE: If you see this, you're using an 
    outdated browser that doesn't support 
    the video tag. </video>
    <!--end video-->

    in addition to Nancy's hint, you could have a look here too:, where you will find a video generator for several formats.
