Playing embedded SWF file in recorded powerpoint show


A

amit

What I want:
1) Embed a swf file in a slide of power-point.
2) Record voice-narration for all the slides.
3) Play the flash file automatically once the particular slide comes
to play.

Step 1) was fairly easy. (Embed swf, ,set Playing to True, embed movie
to true and give file path)
But am not able to attain (3), if i record the voice-narration. (I
understand it has nothing to do with the voice narration) I mean it
fails to play itself in case of a pre-recorded session.

Also, the "Playing" parameter keeps on shifting to false, every time I
play it once. (EVen in case of non-recorded session)

Any suggestions? This is a bit urgent and an early help would be
appreciated

If I have not made my self clear enough, please drop a mail at

Thanks
Amit

Hi Amit,

which version of PowerPoint do you use? PowerPoint 2007 does no longer embed
SWF files but only links them. So before inserting, the Flash file has to be
in the same folder as the presentation and travel with it every time you
move it to another computer.

Best regards,
Ute

Hi Ute,
Yes, I discovered this the hardway. Anyways, we can still go ahead
with our idea by keeping the SWF file on a URL and not exactly
embedding it.

Presently, my main focus is autoplay in a recorded presentation.

Thanks
Amit

I'm sorry, I'm confused.

The problem is #3, playing the Flash file? Or actually, rewinding it? You
might try Shyam Pillai's Flashback add-in. http://www.mvps.org/skp/

Oh, wait. The SWF doesn't play in a recorded presentation? How are you
recording it? Or do you mean it doesn't play if you've recorded narrations
because it won't rewind? (If it's that, then definitely try Flashback.)
