To insert a movie into a Microsoft Word document, you must have a movie program such as Media Player — a Microsoft Windows accessory that lets you play audio, video, or animation files — and a sound card installed on your computer.

- In the Movie box, type the path or Web address (address: The path to an object, document, file, page, or other destination. An address can be a URL (Web address) or a UNC path (network address), and can include a specific location within a file, such as a Word bookmark or an Excel cell range.) of the movie file you want, or click Browse to locate the file.
- In the Alternate image box, enter the path or Web address of the graphics file that you want to designate as a substitute when the user's browser doesn't support movies or when the user turns off the display of movies.
- In the Alternate text box, enter the alternate text (alternative text: Used by Web browsers to display text during image downloads for users who have graphics turned off and for users who rely on screen-reading software to convert graphics on the screen to spoken words.) that you want to appear in place of the movie or alternate image.
