Transparent AVI

I am trying to display an avi with a transparent background.  I got our graphic artist to look at the filecopy.avi that comes with visual studio, and make a new animation with the background color the same as the filecopy.avi background color.  When I play the filecopy.avi, the background IS transparent, and when I play our animation, the background is the horrible purple color (the transparent color).  Is there a way to show only the animation minus the transparent color, or is there a certain color or way that this animation should be made.  Thanks

I think so. There is a certain color to identify that as transperant. I really don't know the color.

I had already looked at this before.  I have been able to find the fix.  I had to use an audioless 16 color avi with no compression.  It worked fine.  Now, I am looking for the ability to see through the animation to a graphic under the animation.
