How to embed videos
Question: How do I embed multiple videos on my website?
Internet Success has found a couple of very good resources to embed multiple videos.
In my search for the proper video sharing tool I came across a website that summarized the best embeddable online video widgets and playlist creators. So, thank you RobinGood for pointing me in the right direction. From the comparison list on RobinGood's website I could see there were many online video embed widgets that would embed youtube videos, but only one listed that would embed any video on the web. That was just what I needed!
VodPod is a social networking video sharing site. It allows users to create collections of videos whether uploaded to VodPod’s site or linked from another site like YouTube, or in my case, AdobeTV.
The Bookmarklet is a link for your browser, and a way for you to add video to your Pod with just a click from video sharing sites like YouTube, Google Video, and dozens of others. Blog Widgets bring your pod to your blog or website where people will be able to see the videos.
Internet Success is using VodPod on our website to show more than one Dreamweaver tutorial video within a single video viewer.

2. Web Stunning Video Player
Web Stunning Video Player is a Dreamweaver Extension that allows you to add video to your Web site, quickly and easily, directly in Dreamweaver (Flash is not required). Web Stunning FLV Player is provided with 7 pre-built skins. You can make your own skins. You can replace all skin images with your own.
The features include: Playlists, thumbnail carousel, progressive downloading, streaming, advanced video adjustment controls, hardware accelerated fullscreen mode ... Everything you'll need to provide rich user experience.
The FLV Player is distributed in the standard Adobe exchange file (mxp), Dreamweaver extension. The product comes with friendly UI, sample files, full documentation and free support.
What I liked the most about this video player was the easy method of converting a youtube video. Once you download the dreamwaver extension and install it in dreamweaver, insert media and you are brought to the Web Stunning Video Player tool. From there you can indicate that your source file is from Youtube. The video tool will take you directly to KeepVid, where you will key in the URL for the YouTube video and it quickly gives you the code to place in the viewer for that particular video. It was very simple to use.
