Powerpoint 2007 and Windows Media Player



I want to know how to get Windows Media Player to function on Powerpoint
2007. I have been able to embed the player, but when I try to open video
files from my computer...it does not work. Strangely, when I play these
video files on Windows Media Player OUTSIDE of Powerpoint, it Works!!! How
do I fix the problem?


How are you "embedding" video? You should be just inserting the wmv, not
embedding it.

Is there a reason you want to use WMP rather than play the videos natively
in PowerPoint (through Insert -> Video -> From File)? My hunch is a path
length issue - try moving ppt & video to the same folder, preferably
directly on your C drive, and reinserting the video.
