How to insert an HTML video

I'm working on creating  tutorial videos with Camtasia and their closed captions feature. The problem is, in order to display the control to toggle CC on and off, I need to link to the html version of the video. I've got the entire video directory on a public facing web server and a URL that links to the html version of the video but I can't get it to display properly on my Confluence page.

Creating a hyperlink works but I'd like to have the frame in the actual page. I tried the widget connector but it just shows me a gear icon, I tried using the HTML widget but it failed to connect with the following test youtube video:

<iframe width="420" height="315" src=""> </iframe>

I've also attempted the multimedia widget but it's looking for an actual file and won't let me use the URL.

Any ideas?
