Shockwave Flash embedded in PowerPoint

Guest

I have embedded a Shockwave Flash (SWF) file in a PowerPoint presentation.
It plays correctly when I run it the first time, but if I save the file to a
CD or move it to another computer, it does not play because the "Playing"
property is being automatically changed from "True" to "False." How can I
prevent this, so the movie runs properly every time?

There's also a similar post here, where it has been suggested that you can
use PFCMedia ( http://www.pfcmedia.com ) or FlashBack (
http://skp.mvps.org/flashback.htm you can initialize Flashback to rewind and
play
the movie).

Karen,

I have got the answer!!!! I was having the exact same problem and it was
driving me nuts because half of my presentation was in flash and everytime I
had to turn back on every flash embedded frame.

Then I realized. What is the first thing that you do after embedding a
flash movie into a slide? You play it to make sure it works, right! Okay,
then it works. And it automatically (with out us seeing) turns the play to
"false". But we don't think about that, we just go right ahead and save it.
We have been saving all of our flash movies with the play function on
"false". So if you go and save your embedded flash movies' play function to
"true" and then with out playing it first save your Presentation then it
saves on "true" and will come up that way the next time you open your
presentation.

The only thing you have to be careful of is after you play the presentation
it changes it back to false automatically again and so when you exit it will
usually ask you if you want to save changes. Well if you do than you are
saving it again to "false" so be sure you either change the play function
back to "true" before saving any other changes or just say "no" to the save
if you didn't make any changes yourself that you want to save.

This is weird but makes sense a little when you think about it.

I am so happy to figure this out I hope this helps!
