Keep Flash Movie Properties in PP2003

Guest

Followed the instructions to place a control linking a Flash .swf file in a
PPt 2003 presentation. Set Play to true. Closed the properties window and
play the show. The movie runs fine. But everytime I restart the show, the
movie is at its end (stopped) and Play has reset to false. Can anyone explain
how to keep the true value from changing or what may need to be done to the
Flash file to allow it to rewind after playing? Thank you.

Thanks - great resource. Problem is the installation of an add on, even a
free one. That's fine for me and the primary installation. But when we start
distributing shows with .swf to our salesforce, any complication is likely to
create problems. Seems like MS needs to look into advising on code to insert
into the control so this can be embedded. Thanks again.

One point since you are distributing shows; unless the receipient has the
full PowerPoint install on his/her computer he will not be able to view your
flash movie. The free PowerPoint viewer does not support activex controls.
