    Your src statement is incorrect it should be

    Code:
    http://sapeginlabs.com/clinnovation/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Holosachristinehtml5.mp4
    
    If you paste that url direct in to your browser you will see that you get an error with incorrect video / mime type.

    If you look at https://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_video.asp you need to change your code to something like

    Code:
    <video width="1156" height="154" autoplay>
      <source src="http://sapeginlabs.com/clinnovation/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Holosachristinehtml5.mp4" type="video/mp4">
    Your browser does not support the video tag.
    </video>
    
    You need the last line for people using old browsers.
