Steganography is the art of hiding information in ways that avert the revealing of hiding messages. Video files are generally a collection of ima ges. so most of the presented techniques on images and audio can be applied to video files too. The great advantages of video are the large amount of data that can be hidden inside and the fact that it is a moving stream of image. In this paper, we propose d a new technique using the motion vector, to hide the data in the moving objects. Moreover , to enhance the security of the data, the data is encrypted by using the AES algorithm and then hided. The data is hided in the horizontal and the vertical componen ts of the moving objects. The PSNR value is calculated so that the quality of the video after the data hiding is evaluated
