Avi or PNG,jpg, Sequence as example :

-Select your Cube in the Basic Scene.

-In Material editor. Create a texture type image.

-In the Image panel use load Image then Load your AVI or the first one Image if you like to load a Png or Jpg Image Series.

- Press the "Movie" Button (Click to enable movie frames as Images.)

-In the Anim and Movie Panel dont forget to press also the small Button (with the arrow< ) to the right of Frames button!(Copies number of frames in Movie file to frames.)!

-Go to "View" Menue and Choose "Backround Image" (you see a Transparent Window opens in 3D View)

-Choose "Use background image" and from the List (not Browser)choose the Name of Avi that already loaded in the Texture-Image Load!
and in "Texture" choose Tex!

Thats All!

Press Alt+ A in 3D Window to see your Avi in Camera View mode (NumPad 0 Button)!

Thanks. I always wondered how to get the background image panel. And this is like some icecream on the cake. Consider putting this in the wikibook.
