Are they part of the project assets?
If you are running the video in the app from a URL then those videos will not contribute the app size. If in the other hand, you added them to project files/assets then you should expect an e=increase in the app size.

What are the total size of these video in your computer?

Yes, they are as Project Assets. The size varies from 10-25mb, is there any way I can reduce the file size.
