Useful links: Video, Access U, WordPress widgets

Video for Everybody! “Video for Everybody is simply a chunk of HTML code that embeds a video into a website using the HTML5 <video> element, falling back to Flash automatically without the use of JavaScript or browser-sniffing. It therefore works in RSS readers (no JavaScript), on the iPhone / iPad (don’t support Flash) and on many browsers and platforms.”

Speaking of Chrome, I’ve tried several times to install it on my Mac (OS 10.5.8) and it won’t open. I keep getting errors. Anybody have any ideas what my problem might be?
