Insert, Play and Edit a Movie for a Slide
Release Date: 03-18-12
Unlike pictures and shapes, movies are linked to the presentation slides rather than embedded. This means a link to the location of the movie will be created when it is inserted on to the slide. Therefore, if the location of the movie is changed, the slide will not be able to find or play the movie. Moving or copying the movie file into the same folder as the presentation itself can avoid this problem.
A trigger effect will be added when inserting a movie. This effect allows the presenter to play and pause the movie with a click of the mouse button while the slide is being presented.
