    "The webpage doesn't display the videos, and neither mentions the type of error"

    Is the way I constructed this sentence correct? Or should it be like:
    "The website doesn't display the videos, and neither does it mention the type of error."?
    I'm confused whether or not the first sentence works fine too.

    Use this way. The construction in your title is not right.

    Also, can 'neither' be replaced with 'nor'?

    Yes, but delete 'and' and replace the comma with a semicolon.

    The website doesn't display the videos; nor does it mention the type of error.

    How about show the videos?

    Re: "The webpage doesn't display the videos, and neither mentions the type of error"

    Can I just check what you actually mean? I think you mean "On this website, videos don't play and there is no explanatory error message"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The last sentence in the previous post should not end with a question mark.
