Using Adobe Acorbat 6.0 Professional and cannot imbed mpegs for some reason.

Using Adobe Acorbat 6.0 Professional and cannot imbed mpegs for some reason.  It has been awhile since I used it, but I would like to make an order form that permits an mpeg video clip pop-up while completing the order form to obtain instructions on various portions of the ordering process... anyone know how?  I thought I did, but I can't seem to get into the tool that allows you to do this.

I have Adobe 7.0 but hopefully the process is the same.

1.  Choose Tools>Advanced Editing>Movie Tool
2.  Right click the toolbar, and then choose Advanced Editing.  Select the Movie tool
3.  Drag or double-click the area on the page where you want the movie
4.  Select Acorbat 6 Compatible Media
5.  Type the path of the url to the movie or browse to it and double-click the movie
6.  Specify the content type to let Acrobat know which media player to use.
7.  Select Embed Content in Document if you want the movie file included
8.  Select Snap to Content Proportion to maintain size
9.  Choose the movie poster that you want.

Hopefully the steps remained the same or at least close enough to help you!!!

I was in error, mine is also Adobe Acrobat 7.0 professional with all the latest upgrades...so I am going to attempt to follow yourinstructions and I will let you know, one question about the instructions if I may;  number 4 what do you mean by Acrobat 6 Compatible Media?  Is a mpeg compatible?  and number 5 the path to the url?  can you explain that as I have been pointing it to the mpeg video clip on my notebooks hard drive?  

One more thing ScottCha, if you don't mind.....are you indicating by url that I have to have the mpeg stored somewhere accessible on line? Any suggestions about how or where I would do that?

One more thing if you will; I have my form as a pdf and when I go to the advance editing and the movie tool it is an inactive tool, all gray and I cannot select it???

Here is a PDF and but i couldn't get the links to the demo:
