Using Nginx to stream h.264 video

I'm currently trying to setup Nginx to stream an mp4 video file.

Currently I have read through:

but wasn't quite sure how to integrate these with Nginx itself.

I have a few questions regarding this:

Is this the mp4 module that I need to be able to stream or is there an 
embedded solution?

Currently I'm running CentOS 6.2 as the server OS and have install Nginx 
from the EPEL repo.... does this contain the module or do I need to get 
the source code and compile it in?

If I need the source code where can I find it as I checked on the site 
but got lost?

Once I have everything correctly up and running how do integrate or 
rather embed a video into an html page? - are there any guides on this?

Sorry if these questions are quite obvious but I am totally new to Nginx 
and I'm still trying to understand the documentation.
