Hi all,
I am writing online help for a procedurally intensive program and want to
visually demonstrate how some procedure are done in the system. I am
debating whether to include AVI files in a winhelp file.
I have taken a look at the archives and haven't found anything that covers
the issue.

Is it a good idea to place buttons in help topics to trigger off AVI files ?

What problems may be encountered if I do ?

How do other people include multimedia materal in their help files ?

Any thoughts, comments, ideas are warmly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
