Inserting Flash Video

Hi i am trying to insert video into a mock webpage [for a cnet course]. When trying to link a video from my harddrive i get an error message from Dreamweaver stating that the url shoul not have any spaces or special characters in it.

I tried renaming the file but it did not work. How can i link this avi file into my website?

I'm using windows xp pro and dreamweaver v8
