I am looking to build a Video Gallery with a play window and a list gallery of placeholder videos. My problem is the videos are constantly updated every week and the newest video should go to the top of the list and automatically load in play window. The problem is, I need it to be easy for anyone on staff to add the video, thumbnail and description without a lot of coding.What is the easiest and cost effective way?
Server-side solution. PHP, .Net, or (my favourite) ColdFusion. Build the page, then create a customised CMS that will allow the staff to log on and upload, title, and caption the videos.

There's really nothing built into DW that can do this for you.
The program could be used to create the page and Content Management System, but you would need to bring the coding knowledge WolfShade describes to the table, or hire someone knowledgeable in server-side scripting to create it for you.
If the use of Dreamweaver is optional, what you're talking about may be available through a WordPress theme.
I have a PHP script that sorts a directory of videos in descending order and automatically generates the playlist. To update content, I simply upload new videos and thumbnail images to a designated folder on the remote server.
For an off the shelf solution, look at Wimpy Player.
Pay particular attention to the Playlists Overview.
