Well, you can reference external files in two ways, both requiring hyperref:


    \href{run:movie.mpg}{ a local file link }

    \href{movie.mpg}{ a relative URL }	

Beyond that, PDF offers 'movie annotations' -- I don't know of a way
to create them, though, short of using the full version of Acrobat
