You need to embed the player on your web page:

Ive always found a good way would be create a youtube account for your site. Upload the videos there. Then embed them into your site.

Your site doesn't get hit by the big video files and your site doesn't get hit by the bandwidth for streaming such videos.

Otherwise you can use Adobe flash to create your own video player or use the new HTML 5 Video tools.

Here is a link to 20 different html 5 video players.

I really like the JW Player:
http://www.longtailvideo.com/players

Easy to use, good documentation, supports xml playlists so you can just put your five videos into a playlist, and it will list them under the player.
