Most likely, you use some unsupported video format; or the video container file contains media using one or more of unsupported codecs. Please see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML5_video#Supported_video_formats[^],
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML5_video#Patented_formats[^],
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML5_video#Free_formats[^],
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Use_of_Ogg_formats_in_HTML5[^].
 
Practically, you should provide only Ogg Theora or WebM formats with the use of compatible codecs. Please see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theora[^],
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebM[^].
 
How can you do this if your available format is different? You can use different software project to remaster the video you already have, but I would strongly recommend FFmpeg or libavcodec utility. Please see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ffmpeg[^],
http://ffmpeg.org/[^],
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libavcodec[^],
http://libav.org/[^].
 
In both cases, you can get free open-source utilities which can make nearly everything.
 
The selection of good sets of encoding parameters to provide a reasonable trade-off between size of the file and quality is a separate song. You may need to experiment for a while and read some practical recommendation to gain enough experience.
 
Good luck,
