In today's world internet is used for data communication which is not secure enough to transfer highly confidential data so information hiding become a emerging research area. Steganography is an art to hiding secret message in a cover and it will also hide the fact that secret information is being sent over the communication network. In this paper a video steganography method is proposed using hash based round Least Significant Bit technique. Video steganography is a more secure than any other steganography technique in hiding information because of its complex structure it disables the intruder to attack. In this paper secret text message is embedded in the video file using proposed hash based round Least Significant Bit technique. This work will improve the information security and embedding capacity. The proposed technique hash based round Least Significant Bit will be compared with the hash based Least Significant Bit. The technique proposed in this paper is analysed in term of Peak Signal to Noise Ratio, Mean Square Error and Embedding capacity.
