Firstly, upgrade to either the latest stable build - r178 - or the latest beta - r180 - both links at bottom of forum page.

There is now an official video plugin - The manual should give you the instructions you need.

Well, I think @zenox98 unintentionally linked an other topic. Here is the page from the manual for the video object https://www.scirra.com/manual/181/video

@Sonyika , I am not familiar with the webm format. I am guessing there are software that can convert to this type of file.

A google search with the terms "convert to webm" gave many results, you can try and see if something works for you.

Videolan's VLC has the facility to convert to many formats, including webm, and it's free.
