Would like to insert/embed a video into a OneNote 2013 page and play the video using OneNote's video controls.  Currently *.wmv or *.mp4 files play but they are either distorted or just black and white.

Depends on what codecs are installed.
If Media Player is installed then it uses Media Player codecs.

See : mediaplayercodecpack


Download and install a K-Lite Codec Pack

See this download link from:
