So youtube uses this code if you want to embed the video in a site
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/MwJTsD6gx0M" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Well I have my own webspace and an FLV player. The wordpress template I’m using uses vimeo/youtube embeddable code to showcase a video and I have no idea how to do it with my own hosted video. I can’t use the HTML code since it’s part of a widget in a wordpress theme (http://i.imgur.com/R5oIP.png). How can I make it so that my video can be put in an embeddable code?

If you have a flv player this means you have a flash player? In that case look for youtube old embed code which uses object tag to embed videos.

I’m trying to make it so that I don’t have to rely on Youtube or Vimeo (don’t want such a recognizable skin). So say I have an mp4 file uploaded to my own server and I want to use an HTML5 player (since I’m going to not use a flv file/player now that I know it’s only going to be flash) and I want to use that in this theme.

For HTML , I could just put in:
<video controls poster="http://origamut.com/videos/chopper_vid.jpg" width="760" height="428">
    <source src="http://origamut.com/videos/chopper_vid.mp4" type="video/mp4">
    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://releases.flowplayer.org/swf/flowplayer-3.2.1.swf" width="760" height="428">
        <param name="movie" value="http://releases.flowplayer.org/swf/flowplayer-3.2.1.swf">
        <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true">
        <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
        <param name="flashVars" value="config={'playlist':['http%3A%2F%2Forigamut.com%2Fvideos%2Fchopper_vid.jpg',{'url':'http%3A%2F%2Forigamut.com%2Fvideos%2Fchopper_vid.mp4','autoPlay':false}]}">
        <img alt="MegaTrader" src="http://origamut.com/videos/chopper_vid.jpg" width="760" height="428" title="No video playback capabilities, please download the video below" />
    </object>
</video>

But that wont work in this theme. So I’m wondering how I would get my own hosted video to get embedded here.

I guess you should get some html5 video player for wordpress plugin, there are some on codecanyon if I am not mistaken.
