Is this possible. Where I would have a display object on the set, like a screen or a TV. Then I would import a video clip which I could choose to have play on the TV or screen within the movie. I used to do this with Xtranormal and need it for a specific clip I am preparing.

Any advice on if this is possible and how to do it would be much appreciated.

If you convert your video to webm (maybe use Miro or Any Video Converter), then you should be able to play it on any prop that can have a custom image.
In the Director's View, right click on the prop where the custom image goes, and select 'Play Video' and browse to your video file.

Warning - try not to have lots of videos going at once in your scene. Sometimes there can be memory issues with video playback, and it's not something that is easy to debug and fix (it uses ffmpeg libraries rather than just being Java like everything else).
