Can't get the code right for AMM

Nig I can't seem to get the code right to view an mpg I want to play in my ebook.

I've tried following the code in the help file but I only get an error message. For example, the following code does not work (and it's just one sample of several versions I've been playing with, adding or taking out brackets, commas, etc)

<a href="##AMM.VIDEOPLAY('{ebook}\Strike.mpg','Video Playback')"> movie</a>

What am I doing wrong? Please help as this is fast getting REALLY annoying!

EBookCompiler 1/ Did you enable loading multimedia in Edit Add-Ins?

2/ What error message do you see - if any ? What happens when you click the link?

3/ Is Strike.mpg in the eBook source folder when you compile?

Nig 1. Yes, I enabled the Add-in. When I go to Edit Add-ins, AMMEXT.AEA is there.
2. Strike mpg is in the same folder as the page where the code calls it.
3. The error message is "Syntax error in Activ Script Command"
"Unknown command: ##AMM.VIDEOPLAY('{Dowsing}\Strike.mpg','Video Playback')
I've tried altering the reference to Strike.mpg with and without the '\'. In fact I've tried just about everything I can think of.

Any help would be great as I'm running out of time with this now.
