You have a lot of options in this area. Freeway 6 creates an HTML5 video element automatically. Just draw an HTML box, import your mp4 into it, and publish (assuming your page is set to the HTML5 doctype).
In Freeway < 6, you can use the VideoJS Action, the Sublime Player Action (with Sublime account, free or paid), or the HTML5 Video Action. The first two are my creation, and they also re-jig the page to be valid* HTML5 when they create the video tag. Both Sublime and VideoJS fall back to Flash if you are in the presence of a browser that doesn’t understand HTML5 video or doesn’t have a codec for MP4 (certain versions of Firefox and Chrome). I am not sure, but I believe that the HTML5 Video Action does something similar as well.

I am attempting to embed mp4 movies onto pages. I have always embedded .mov files created with quicktime. I was trying to embed mp4 files so that the browsers don’t ask for the quicktime pluggin.
I embedded the mp4 files and they still ask for the quicktime pluggin. In Safari and Chrome the player looks a little different than before.
Forgot the footnote. *For certain definitions of valid. This is a naive translation, basically chopping off the existing DOCTYPE and bolting on an HTML5 version. My HTML5 Actions all cooperate in this manner, only performing this surgery once per page.
