Movie file on webpage: - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I'm trying to get 3 .mpg files on a website to be viewed when the user clicks on the appropriate image. My question is what would be the correct way to implement this. I don't want the movie playing as soon as the webpage loads nor do I want it playing when mouseover event occurs. The files are between 1.3 and 2.3 MB. The webpage owner doesn't like the idea of have zip files on his site. He wants the user to be able to click on the video they want to watch. Your ideas are greatly appreciated. TIA< Zap...

    Take a screenshot of the movies and place that on the page with a link
    behind it to the actual movie. Have some text that also tells the view the
    size of the file. When they click the image the movie will download and
    play.
