I experiment with an example from https://www.overleaf.com/latex/examples/using-media9-to-include-videos-files/yvdwwvpknjkk to embed a video using the media9 package:

    % using a .mp4; downloaded from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9iXD2-hbJM                                                                                                                                 

The video works with the okular viewer, not evince. Acrobat Reader throws a 3D parsing error.

However, the video plays only once upon opening the document. I have no ability to replay, pause and resume the video. Also clicking the video with the mouse as explained in Media9 package: pause video without mediabutton does not work.

How to implement these additional functionalities?

    Support of embedded media is very limited in non-Adobe PDF viewers. Evince doesn't support it at all, Okular with little functionality only. Perhaps, playing the video in an external application is the better option for Okular and Evince: \href{run:penguins.mp4}{Click!}..
