I want to include an introductory video on my yola site. My question is that if I can use HTML5 so it can be viewed in more devices. If it can be done, how can I do it? What are the requirements? Thank you in advance.

Well ,
you can include videos either html5 , or any script that works fine with your browser.

I don't know much about this , but I am going to include one too. ( please check My Site in 11 Am GMT in saturday.

To include a video to your site , you need a Streaming Host , and a flash player.
I am sticked on youtube and I think you should. First , sign up with Youtube , and upload your video at them.
When you playing that video , you can copy the Embed Code which placed right of player.
In that code , edit the width and height to fit your web page.

For an example , if you've a space of 50
pixels in your site , change width to 500, and multiple 500 by 0.8235 (to preserve aspect ratiom)

then, paste the code within a Html widget, no matter whether it is html5.
Youtube now uses html5 markup.

I would be extremely careful about using HTML5 right now. Most browsers do not fully support HTML5 quite yet. So be careful as people will not be able to view your webpage correctly. I would stick with flv (like Ayesh suggested) until HTML5 becomes bigger and compatible with more browsers.
