Welcome to the forum....

You can't add them in Movie Maker, but you can save a movie to a WMV file in Movie Maker and then add a hyperlink to it using the File Editor utility included in the Windows Media Encoder 9 package.

I appreciate your reply. (I'm really new to this....)
As per your instructions, I downloaded Windows Media Encoder 9 package (and encoded it); but I don't know how to proceed- where and how can I add links?? Can you please provide specific instructions? Please help... Thanks in advance for your assistance.

OK... here's an example....

1 - Open the File Manager - wmeditor.exe

In File Manager
2 - Open the wmv file that you want to add the URL link to
3 - Go to the frame where you want to insert the link
4 - Press the 'Script Commands...' button > add a command (to illustrate it, I added http://www.papajohn.org/PapaJohn-Services.html as the command at the end of a 10 second wmv file named welcome.wmv
5 - File > Save and Index to embed the link

Put your video online and play it in an embedded player. Here's a page with one:
page with embedded player

Type welcome.wmv into the entry field above the player > tab to the player window > press enter

The 10 second video 'Windows Media Encoder 9 Series' will play and, at the end of it, the embedded link will open my website's Products and Services page.

Thanks for your info.
I followed all the above steps but it's not linking. (I put my video on "YouTube").
Any suggestions??

I just checked my sample by putting it on Facebook.... where it doesn't work either.

It's up the player to read and follow the info in the tag. That means YouTube and Facebook conversions to flash or MP4 files either strip out the tag or their players don't follow them. You would need to put your video on a site that follows the tag, or put it on your own site where you make the rules.

I gave you my example page.... which is on a 1&1 server. I pay a monthly fee for their hosting it.

I don't know of any others. If you find one, let me know.
