Hi Woodka,
Steps to play the video in background:

1. Create an Interactive > Presentation layout.
2. Create a video object and select the .flv format file using External Reference dialog box from Video drop down of Objects tab.
3. Now go to Scripts tab and create a new script say Script1.
4. Associate Play Video action with "Script1".
5. Move to pages tab and set Script1 in Entry Script drop down.
6. Click on SWF Preview.

Hope it helps.
