Good Evening, Community

I'm now taking a degree of electronics engineering and I'm starting to learn programming in C. I don't have enough knowledge on that matter to call myself a programmer, but I have some basic concepts and experience in programming. Security issues are something that concerns me.

So, I'm looking for the possibility of inject malicious code under a movie/video file. Every now and then I watch some video clips and small movies and I'm looking for the possibility to get my machine infected doing this. Is this possible? If so, a regular anti-virus would detect it?

Thanks in advance.
