Via Custom JavaScript. Change video source as needed. This script will only affect Usermode visualization but not Touch, Schedulers or Trends.
Code:
$(function(){
  if ($('body').hasClass('usermode')) {
    var src = 'https://interactive-examples.mdn.mozilla.net/media/cc0-videos/flower.mp4';
    
    var el = $(
      '<video muted="true" autoplay="true">' +
        '<source src="' + src + '" type="video/mp4">' +
      '</video>'
    ).css({
      'position': 'absolute',
      'top': 0,
      'left': 0,
      'width': '100%',
      'height': '100%',
      'z-index': 9999,
      'background': 'white'
    }).appendTo('body');
    
    el.on('ended click', function() {
      el.off();
      
      el.css({
        'transition': '0.5s',
        'opacity': 0
      });
      
      setTimeout(function() {
        el.remove();
      }, 500);
    });
  }
});

You need a direct link to .mp4 video file but it won't work with streamable because it only provides a temporary link to the file. If the video file is not big you can upload it directly to LM via FTP into public directory (using apps login). Then set src to '/public/VIDEO_FILE_NAME.mp4'

When connected to LM there is no directory such as public so i created it and uploaded the video file ( which is 1.8 mB ) but is doesn't work anyway.

You need to use apps login for FTP not ftp login. The base directory structure should look like this:

Which browser and on what device are you testing this with? Check if you can access the video file directly from your browser: http://LM_IP/public/VIDEO_FILE_NAME.mp4

I'm using an Android based touchscreen for HMI purpose.My guess is android version doesn't support mp4 file type.
But it works with common browsers ( Chrome, opera, etc. )

You can use GIF but it will be much larger than a video file. Which Android version does your panel have?
