I was in need of embedding video in an app. Its pretty simple refer this.
Go ahead with my blog or else refer the link provided.
1) Create a res/raw/ folder
2) Paste video inside raw/ folder.
3) Create a layout file activity_main.xml

<RelativeLayout 
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:id="@+id/container"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    tools:context="com.wordpress.smdaudhilbe.aembeddingvideoinapp.MainActivity"
    tools:ignore="MergeRootFrame" >

    <VideoView
        android:id="@+id/videoView1"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
        android:layout_centerVertical="true" />

</RelativeLayout>

4)

public class MainActivity extends Activity {

	private VideoView videoView;

	@Override
	protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
		super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
		setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
		
		videoView = (VideoView)findViewById(R.id.videoView1);
		
//    refer Video
		String fileName = "android.resource://" + getPackageName() + "/" + R.raw.moto_x_review_2014;
		videoView.setVideoURI(Uri.parse(fileName));

//    start video
		videoView.start();
	}
}
