Video played during the installation progress (game related)

Hello, on behalf of our head developer the reason for posting this because; we are working on a video game modification project which to be released SOON. We are frequent users of WinRaR for many years now thus it is getting old and redudant. That is why we need something new as an alternative. Hopefully NSIS will do anything. What Big Boss[head developer] really wanted to make our soon to be Installer awesome is a video attached to it which automatically plays during the Installation sequence, probably it needs a custom code or Plug-in to execute. To get the idea here is the example inside the .zip file which we will replicate for our proposed Installer even though it's NOT ours.

So my question here is how to add and automatically play a non-loopable video file during the user installation progress using NSIS just like the link I provided. We are 1st timers on using NSIS so teach us step by step.

https://nsis.sourceforge.io/NsMCI_plug-in might work in theory but MCI is very old, might only play AVI and MPEG1.

https://nsis.sourceforge.io/NsisSlideshow_plug-in if a slideshow is acceptable.

Otherwise I think you are on your own.

Unless your setup is on a DVD, does this even make sense? Why waste time extracting a video?

It doesn't matter whether old or new the important at least is these plugins are proved to be useful.

Actually is not DVD nor ISO but rather standalone .exe installer.
