Playing a video file

Hello-
I'm a new user of Inquisit, and I had a question about .avi or video files playing during a slide.
I have this input:

<video countdown>
/ items = ("3countdown.avi")
/ playthrough = true
/ position = (25, 25)
</video>

But I get this error message:
/items: Unable to open file 'C:\Windows\System32\3countdown.avi'.
So can it just not find the file, or is there something else that I'm missing? I would also like the file to play as soon as the page is opened, but that is a moot point considering that the video itself is not working in the first place.

Thank you so much for any help you can offer on this!
