getting movie clips onto website

Can some kind person advise the best way to get a couple of movie images onto my website.
They are currently in mpg format.
I've the pages prepared to paste them into, but just lack the skill to do it.
I'm using a combination of frontpage 2000 and NVU
TIA

The best option is to convert the video to a flash flv file you can get a converter from
http://www.sorensonmedia.com/
Its only a trail but if you only need it once it will do you.
Your only problem is Frontpage 2000 is so old it wont know about flv files. If you look at my page
http://www.crewetown.co.uk/sk8/vids.htm
you can see lots of flv videos and if you copy the source code and change the file name you may be able to do it by hand.
Flv compress the file a great deal and can reduce a 40 meg file down to 10 meg this is why its used as it saves bandwidth, it also gives you the nice player.
Another way to do it would be to upload it to utube or similar as that converts it to flv then link to it or download it and use there code.
If they are only small files you could convert them to swf files which is flash there are lots of free video converters that will do this
