Need to put a video on a private website (don't want to use YouTube, etc.)

If I obtain Dreamweaver, will it help me with an existing website?   My previous ancient programs (Front Page and MS Expression Web) are apparently no longer.  I used to be able to upload video directly to our website (WMV etc.) without having to use a YouTube or Vimeo URL.   Now, certain browsers do not support older, basic video forms.   I cannot find a website-content-update program that will allow me to add videos to our website in a current format like MP4.    Will Dreamweaver do this?   Or is the purpose of Dreamweaver something else entirely?

Yes you can use DW to update your site.  However, so many things have changed since Front Page was discontinued you probably need a total re-build to modern code standards.

 

Go to Insert > HTML > HTML5 video. 

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Video Demo</title>

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
<style>
video {max-width:100%; display:block}
</style>
</head>

<body>
<!--replace FOLDER name, POSTER_IMAGE and YOUR_VIDEO with yours-->
<video poster="FOLDER/POSTER_IMAGE.jpg" controls>
<source src="FOLDER/YOUR_VIDEO.mp4" type="video/mp4">
</video>
</body>
</html>
