Are you using Chrome for testing by chance?

The video plays fine for me here.

If you're using Chrome, it may be a sticky cache that's keeping you from seeing the video.

Run your page through the validator at http://validator.w3.org/nu or under File > Validate> urrent Document (W3C) in DW to get a listing of your issues. There are some problems with your html that should be taken care of.

The <video> tag is the correct way to do video online, the <source> stack is no longer necessary though. All modern browsers see .MP4 files fine.

If you need to support older browsers with .OGV and .WebM in your <source> stack, there are tons of free conversion services online. I've used this one in the past with very good results...

Are there any .ht requirements for <video> when working in SSL ?  Unable to get video to play when loading .mp4 from same SSL site.

None that I've ever noticed.

Are you accidentally using http instead of https in the video's file path by chance?

Mixing secure and non-secure file paths will cause issues.

No... have verified the https: in the file.  I 'm able to link and play the .mp4 video from another http: site without difficulty but that blows the SSL on the new secure site.  Strange that the same video will play when loaded from another site but NOT when loaded from it's own site...

Are you getting any error messages at all?

Anything odd/overly proprietary about your server?

Can you share a link to your page?

The server needs to be configured to support various media MIME types.   If you're on a Linux server, you can create or add the following to your .htaccess file.

AddType audio/mp4 .mp4 .m4a

AddType audio/mpeg .mp1 .mp2 .mp3 .mpg .mpeg

AddType video/mp4 .mp4 .m4v

If you're not familiar with the <video> tag, you can do it from DW's Design View interface easily enough...

1. Click where you want the video and go to Insert > HTML > HTML5 Video

2. In the Properties window, add your .MP4s location to the Source field and a still frame to the Poster field

3. Add a Title and Fallback text for ancient browsers

4. Don't use the W/H boxes, width and height should be controlled in CSS, not HTML.
     Also skip the Flash Fallback field, there's no reason for it now that Flash is officially on deathwatch
5. Add the .WebM and .OGV files in the Alt Source 1 and 2 box if you need to support old browsers
