There are various ways to embed video:
1. Upload your videos to some server like youtube. You can then, save the youtube link within your database and include the link at the location where you want to show the video.

2. You can save the video file physically within some location and the filename within the database. You will then have to fetch the correct filename and substitute it within an "object" tag at the location where you want to show the video.

I hope this helps.
