I didn't find any link to a wiki in getlazarus.org, so I'm forced to 
post just here.
Which Wiki did you refer to?

The video in your HTML5 page doesn't appear to be multiplatform accessible.

To play it under CentOs 6, which is quite popular in 
enterprise/corporation environment a user is forced to install 
proprietary codecs, which don't come with the distribution and may give 
rise to licensing/patent issues, and a Firefox version directly 
downloaded from mozilla website, and not subject to RedHat security 

I'd suggest a look to 
http://techslides.com/sample-webm-ogg-and-mp4-video-files-for-html5 , 
where you can find an example of appropriate handling of multiple video 
formats (by using multiple <source ..> tags).

Then there's a lot of tools for converting video formats, to provide 
viable alternatives.
Under Linux, for example, a simple old fashioned

ffmpeg -i myfile.mp4 -f ogg myfile.ogv

does the trick of converting from patented mp4 format to free ogg format.

Under Windows the Handbrake converter is free and open source: 

Just my 2 cents,
