Plugins adds more functionality and in some cases it's easier to do stuff by making 3rd party plugin then make xxx amount of events and in other cases things can be done only by using plugins - Paster, Q3D, or even official ones like Audio for example.

As the manual states, html 5 exported games are not usually allowed to run locally due to browser security restrictions, and must be hosted in either your own web server, or an external site such as Dropbox.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

You are not really giving us much with which to help you.

Would it be possible to either provide a .capx or at least a link to the exported game? That way, we can all test it.

In the mean time - try it on different browsers and check the browser console for error messages.
