One can attempt embedding videos into an E-mail by using HTML (as it is the only wide-spread language that can embed videos), but it is not always definite that it will embed itself - because the HTML that embeds the video may be blocked or rendered in a way that does not show the user the video - often for protection.

If the HTML is allowed, then yes, in most cases, videos can be shown in E-mail.

Most E-mail providers (and E-mail reading software, such as Microsoft Outlook) will have an option to block HTML, by rendering it unable to work somehow, or showing the raw source of the message (with a raw buffer, in which no HTML is parsed into objects or elements, etc).

Hotmail, Yahoo, and other E-mail providers usually keep this option on as a default (allowing HTML), but only from trusted senders of the E-mail, such as contacts. Microsoft Outlook and most E-mail viewing programs turn the option off as a default (not allowing HTML).

You can use the embed code provided on most YouTube videos. This embed code can be added to the body section of your website in order to display the subsequent video.
