Sure, you just have to write the code to do it. You may want to look for jquery plugins to help with this. There are likely some already out there.

Yes possible. Did you try anything?

Use the following steps:
1. Design the videos in any format you like, tabular, list, etc
2. Wrap the videos in a link tag such that when you click it, onclick event of the controls is raised.
3. In the onclick event, use Windows.Open method to show the video.

MSDN: showModalDialog Method[^]
MSDN: open method (Windows)[^]

Try out!
