The video embeds can be made simply by putting the video file on it’s own line.

For Example:

Your Post Content

http://yourdomain.com/cool/movie/coolest.mov

Your Post Content

Now suppose a video file uploaded in media library then you can play it inside a post by using its URL with [video] shortcode as shown below”

[video src=”video-source.mp4″]

If you you have a source URL and fallbacks for other HTML5-supported filetypes then:

[video mp4=”source.mp4″ ogv=”source.ogv” mov=”source.mov”]

In the same way you can use more parameters like poster, loop, autoplay, preload, width and height.
