Visible movie textures?

Ok, I have no problem applying .avi’s as textures in blender, but is there anyway to get them to show up in the 3D view workspace? This would be a great help as it is hard to place objects and effects correctly over video plane if all you see is a bright white square. Any help would be appreciated.

This would perhaps work for you:

I will try that. Thanks!
