I want to find out if it's possible to embed a video file in a MS Word document? I mean not to have a link to a file on a file system, but actually put a video file into a document file.

I need to know if it's possible to have a single document, which can have an embedded video and can be viewed on another machine. If it's not possible, I would like to get some explanations about it.
