Still can't add video



I have a clip and it is in windows media player. When I try to insert it
onto the slide show I go to Insert - Movie and Sounds - Movie from file.
Then I select the clip and add insert but nothing shows on the slide show.
What am I doing wrong?

Hi Erin

Make sure the video is in the same folder as the powerpoint file *before*
inserting it (and save the ppt). Does that fix it? If not, you may want to
try creating a folder on your C: drive (e.g. C:\myppt) and moving the ppt &
video to there then re-inserting video.

If that doesn't work post back with your version. Oh, and this is certainly
worth a read (for great info such as powerpoint not using windows media
player to play videos....):
