video as material / a videomaterial ?

hello everyone, this might be a newb question, i dont know, couldnt find anything about it…

would be great if i could edit and define everything directly in hammer.

similar to:

but it has to be possible, to run videos from my pc

(the pc wont be connected to the internet, due to this, that its a theater project and i want do avoid gmod updates at the time of the presentation)

would be very happy if you could help me out with this!
cheers
