There are also some attributes to add for the <video> tag like: loop - muted - poster - preload.

On the other hand, you can add a video is using <embed/> tag. Note: <embed/> tag does not need an ending/finishing tag.

and it supports some extensions like .swf .wmv .mov .mpeg .

Example:

<embed src="QandeelVideo.mpeg" autostart="false" height="240" width="320"/>
