I used the suggest method to insert a downloaded video clip on my hard drive:

1. While on the slide that you’d like to add the video to, go to the ‘Insert’ tab and click ‘Movie’.

2. Choose the ‘Movie from File’ option and select a movie from your hard drive by double clicking on it.

3. Click to indicate whether you want your movie to start ‘Automatically’ or ‘When Clicked’.

4. Drag the video around to position and resize within the slide.

When I completed the steps above I get an image on the slide. When I attempt to play the movie the slide goes blank. I am using PowerPoint 2007 - Windows 7 Sp1

Video can be difficult to troubleshoot in PowerPoint.

First suggestion is to ensure that you have all Office 2007 service packs and updates installed, not just the Windows 7 updates. You definitely want at least SP1 for Office 2007, and realistically you want to just go ahead and get the latest, which is SP3: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949585

Next question is, what kind of video file is it? You mentioned that you downloaded it. What file format did you download it / convert it to?
