streaming video inside a lightbox

I would like the code below to stream in a lightbox after a user clicks a thumbnail on the home page of the site I am working on....

Can you please make this work?
<video id=0 controls width=640 height=360>
<noscript><a href=http://www.freemake.com/free_video_converter/>video converter</a></noscript>
<source src="RValdez_CameraLighting111611.ogv" type='video/ogg; codecs="theora, vorbis"'/>
<source src="RValdez_CameraLighting111611.webm" type='video/webm' >
<source src="RValdez_CameraLighting111611.mp4" type='video/mp4'>
<p>Video is not visible, most likely your browser does not support HTML5 video</p>

Got a "neglected question alert" on this one.  I can't help you with this, but I can offer a suggestion to help you get a good answer here at EE.

First, delete this question.  Some experts will overlook questions that have a dialog already started.

Next, repost the question in the HTML, JavaScript, and Web Development zones.  Then ask a moderator to add it to the jQuery zone.  When you do that, attach all of the ogv, webm, and mp4 files needed for your fellow experts to make a good test case.  If you cannot attach them (EE may not allow it) then post fully-qualified links to the files so we can download a copy for our own tests.  HTML5 support is pretty good now, and if we have all the test data we need, we may be able to help.

Best of luck with your project, ~Ray
