    You can't. The iphone doesn't allow videos in webpages. Instead, if there is a video file, it will open it's quicktime player (like an app) and play it there, within the browser, but not as a "webpage". So you can use a popup to play a video but it will open the video in a new quicktime window-- or it will just ignore the embed code, depending on whether the iphone recognizes the format and that it should play it.
    For an iphone, the best way to use videos is to make sure they are in a compatible format and provide a direct link. (In fact, this is the only way.)
    Alternatively you can put them on youtube and the iphone will automatically use the youtube app to play it.

    The only other possibility would be to create your own app, but I don't think this would solve the problem.

    This is not possible. Read my post above. That's just how the iphone works.
