instant video

What I would like to do is have a visitor to my site pop up a video when they click on it. Let me try to explain. When a visitor clicks on my site or enters it in the search bar or whatever mode they access my site, the first thing I want to have happen is my invitational video to start playing.

i.e. you click on bodybyvimakeover.com and immediately it starts playing my informational video.

Does anyone know how I can accomplish this?

Thanks a million for this beginner site builder - by the way this is awesome and I love doing it and knowing how to do it.
