Default Animated Texture

Could you tell me how I can create an animated texture in maya? I mean using a video file as a texture
like textures in The Matrix movie that numbers and word fall as texture
How can I do this?
for more info I've attached a 143KB screen shot of that video texture.

i think he just wanted to know how to import a video file as a texture.
you will need to convert your video as an image sequence.
open the first image, and turn on use image sequence check box
or type "=frame" into the Frame Extension field in the attribute editor in older versions of maya
