What is the easiest way to embed .wmv videos within IIS?

I need to embed some training video's in our new, blank, company intranet. They are in .wmv format. I am a Systems Engineer, and not a Web Developer - this is a bit out of my experience. All i want, for now, is a blank page, with the videos embedded into it with a simple plain text title description. Monitoring a folder, and automatically listing the new files would be nice, but not necessary. It will be running on Server 2012 (non-R2). I already have MS Smooth Stream installed, but it doesn't even have to be that.
Thanks.
