randomly, you cannot, but through the use of hyperlinks, you can make the presentation look like there are 6 small clips in one slide.
1st - create a still image of each video's 1st frame. You can do this using Apple's image capture app found in Utilities when having the movie paused in iTunes or Quicktime.
2nd - in Keynote, create 7 blank slides. On slide 1, use the created still images to create the layout you want, where in the slide you want the video's to play.
3rd - One at a time, click on an image and inside 'inspector' go to the hyperlinks tab (2nd from the right). Check the box that reads, "enable as a hyperlink" then the dropdown menu should have "Link to Slide" selected. Finally, check the very last option "Slide ___" and selected a slide number. Each image should be hyperlinked to its own individual slide 2-7 (don't link anything to slide 1).
4th - After you have all the images linked. Do a Cmd+A on the slide to selected everything on the slide and then a cmd+c to copy it. Paste it (cmd+v) on all the other slides so that every one (all 7) look the same.
5th - in each slide (2 through 7) replace 1 image with a video. There should be a different video on each slide.
That should do it. When you play the presentation, you should see six images, then when you click on on, it should seemlessly move to the slide with the video in it and start playing the video. Because the hyperlinks are implanted into every slide, you should ahve no problem clicking on a different image for another video. There are some things you can do to make sure you or other people don't accidentally click into the wrong slide or click out of the presentation as well, but I can give that info once you figured out the top part first.

I think I will do so. The problem by doing this are:
- When moving from clip 3 to clip 1, clip 3 will suddenly looks like it is in the first frame
- I can not show the last frame of the played movies.
Thank you for your help.

That's a nice solution, but there's one thing missing. In your example, slide 1 links to "clones" 2–7. From the audience's perspective, the presenter should be able to play any of the movies he likes, or none, and then procede to the "next" slide (which would actually be slide 8). To do this, each of the slides 1–7 needs to know that, if a hyperlink is *not* clicked, an "ordinary" click/press of the space-bar/press of a remote presenter button, meaning "advance to next slide" should actually trigger a jump to slide 8 instead of paging through all the remaining clones. Is there a way of configuring such non-linear paths between slides in Keynote?
