You can embed it in HTML with a compatible browser using:

<video src='foo.ogg'></video>

In SVG you can also embed it using SVG video in a compatible browser:

<svg xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg'
  <video xlink:href="foo.ogg"/>

If the browser doesn not support video in SVG, but does support it it
in HTML, you can use foreignObject:

<svg xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg'
  <div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <video src="foo.ogg"/>

Unfortunately the 'compatible browser' is the issue. Opera supports
video in SVG. Firefox does not. Firefox and Opera have experimental
HTML video support for Theora. Safari has HTML video support but not
built in for Theora, it needs XiphQT plugins.
