Urgent problem with video format

I'm giving a public demo tomorrow, where people will be doing production themselves. This will be with QuarkXPress 9.3, so the first-generation App Studio.
I have a video file that I want people to embed. It plays fine on my Mac AND on my iPad (test by going here: http://thanemagazine.com/Carnage-Corner.mp4) ... but when I try to set it as the Video item using App Studio (remember, in QXP9.3) I am not able to choose this video: it is greyed out.I really need help fixing this as soon as possible!Keith

Actually... good news. And bad news. The good news is that the room I'm using for my demo/workshop has been upgraded to QXP9.5. The bad news is that I still can't get the video to work, even in the new AVE feature. (It's far simpler to demo AVE than the new HTML5, sorry!) I've exported in a number of different formats but so far, no joy.
Can someone tell me a definitive way to create a working video file?

AAAaaand relax!
My fault, my bad, my dumb mistake. I'm a teensy bit stressed (yes, really!), and I stupidly was clicking the File button at the bottom of the set of options for the Video 'enrichment' type. But, of course, that's not for loading the video, it's for loading a preview image. Doh!
My apologies. I'll go chill for a minute.[H]

Hi Keith,
I was just going to respond that it works for me, when I saw your last post. So ignore this post please ;-)
