HTML5 Video Player Widget

Framework: JQuery

Make your video playable across all devices with the same UI! This widget provides a hybrid Flash & HTML5 solution for cross-platform, cross-device media playback. The Kaltura library supports seamless fallback with Flash-based playback (using Kaltura's media player, KDP3) in browsers that don't yet feature HTML5 video & audio support. Depending on the client browser, the HTML5 Widget will choose the appropriate codec to use and the right player to display. So whether you're using Flash, h264, Ogg Theora or WebM, Kaltura's library will make sure it is played consistently on all browsers with the same HTML-based UI. Although support for HTML5 video is growing, there is presently a large percentage of the web browser market best served by the Adobe Flash Player. The Kaltura HTML5 JavaScript library bridges this gap by leveraging the underlying Flash Player in browsers that do not support the native HTML5 video element. In addition, the HTML5 player provides a unified look & feel across devices and browsers. Read more at -

This widget could do with being updated to the latest version of Kaltura html5 video player. The Dreamweaver widget installs jquery-1.4.2.min.js wheras the latest version uses jquery-1.6.2.js. Also the latest video player is much smoother and more configurable. Keeping it up to date would definitely earn 5 stars from me.

Stephanie Rewis is actually using this plugin, but I get to 99% and then it waits for a second or two and then:
Error Downloading Widget
There was an error downloading the widget:
[3003] File or directory does not exist.

I am running 32-bit XP. I will take a guess the other people who have problems are running 32-bit OS's as well, and the widget was compiled for 64-bit only or something.

I'm also getting the error. I give this widget zero stars, although the form forces me to select a radio button.

Error [3003] File or directory does not exist. As far as I can tell, there is absolutely no explanation or help for the user available for this error condition. The Widget Browser (and therefore all Widgets) is useless to me and I can't get any info on how to fix it. A major company like Adobe owes it's clients SOME level of support, especially on problems that render a feature totally useless!
