How to post a tutorial clip to a confluence page?

I'm trying to publish some 'how to' mp4 clips on a confluence cloud page using the multimedia macro.  I'm struggling to find a working set of mp4 settings, everything I upload results in a message "a plugin is needed to display this content".  However I can open the clips directly in the browser at they play fine.  

I'm new to publishing video content so grabed a sample mp4 clip and I'm getting the same result.

Is there a set of video settings I need to use?
Are there any sample of working videos I could investigate?
