You could extend your page model and add some File fields for the video
$has_one = array(
' VideoOgg' => 'File',
' VideoMp4' => 'File',
' VideoPlaceholder' => 'Image'
add the fields to the CMS,
public function getCMSFields()
$f = parent::getCMSFields();
new FileIFrameField(' VideoOgg', 'Upload .ogv Video'));
new FileIFrameField(' VideoMp4', 'Upload .mp4 Video'));
new ImageField(' VideoPlaceholder', 'Upload Placeholder Image'));
and then place the video tag into your template
<video controls width="600" height="400" <% if VideoPlaceholder %>poster=" $VideoPlaceholder.URL"<% end_if %>>
<source src=" $VideoOgg.URL" type="video/ogg">
<% if VideoMp4 %>
<source src=" $VideoMp4.URL" type="video/mp4">
<% end_if %>
<!-- Flash Fallback -->
<% end_if %>
You can get a lot fancier, this just a simple example.
