Embeded video in beamer [closed]

I am trying to embed a video in a beamer presentation. What I am trying is to use \usepackage{multimedia} and in my main code to use the following to add the video:

\begin{frame}{movie}
\begin{figure}[h!]
\centering
\movie{\includegraphics[width=0.45\textwidth]{1.jpg}}{demo.mp4}
\caption{caption}
\end{figure}
\end{frame}


However in my pdf I get just the image .jpg and I cant see or play the demo video. What is my problem here?
