You can try HTML5 video tag. Create a visualforce page with this tag. Then create a home page component as a Visualforce Area. And add that to the home page layout.


<video width="400">
  <source src="http://www.w3schools.com/html/mov_bbb.mp4" type="video/mp4" Controls="true" />

    Since the visualforce area will be jailed in a security silo in form of an iframe, the user experience may be poor using a 400px video inside a 200px sidebar.
