"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you use a standard encoded video, all browsers already support it:

https://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_video.asp

There's no freeware necessary, as the browser is responsible for playing it.
