You might want to link to both, if you have both, and otherwise you should
be able to keep using the same HTML you're using now. Given that you're
using autoplay, you obviously can't autoplay both; what I would do if I
were you is upload an mp4, make a test page linking to that instead of the
.mov, and see if it works. You might also want to ask people to give it a
test run before you flip the switch…

video playlists on webjay.org to be able to include your videos.
