Videos??

I was wondering, can you input video files in the program and have it run during the program?

Yes you can run videos from within true basic, but you will need to CHAIN out to an external player.

SUB SHOWVIDEO(vidname$)
ASK DIRECTORY dir$
CHAIN "!"&defdir$&player$&"file://"&dir$&"\videos\"&vidname$&".RM",RETURN
END SUB

where the video player software is in defdir$ and named player$ and the file to be run in in the videos folder and named vidname$. This example runs RealVideo files.
