I'm having trouble uploading epub with video embed on kdp.
Its a epub book file which works perfectly on iTunes store and up there now
but my boss wants me to upload a sample file which is 22mb with a video in it to kindle but it doesn't seem to upload

ePub does not (officially) support video, and the Kindle does not support ePub, so it's not surprising it doesn't work.

If you are trying to use kindlegen or Kindle Previewer or the KDP service to convert ePub to .azw, which often works, it is quite possible that those tools will not convert the iBooks ePub video embedding directly, since it is not standard ePub (yet). You might have to do the conversion 'by hand' as it were by extracting the source files and tweaking them into a more compatible form, which is to say into Mobipocket XHTML dialect with the video tagging that is supported for Kindle.
