Chapter 5. Inserting Pictures and Multimedia > Playing Movies and Sounds

Playing Movies and Sounds

After you insert movie or sound objects, you can modify them so they play continuously or just one time. Movies and sounds can play in either Normal view or Slide Show view. You can also view and play movies using the full screen. When you install Windows Media Player 8 or later on your computer, PowerPoint supports its file formats, including ASX, WMX, M3U, WVX, WAX, and WMA. To play individual sounds, or sounds from video, you need a sound card and speakers.

Play a Movie or Sound

  • To play a movie or sound in Normal view, double-click the movie object or sound icon.

  • To play a movie, sound, or animated picture in Slide Show view, click the Slide Show button, and then display the slide with the media you want to play.

    Depending on your slide show multimedia options, you may need to click the movie object or sound icon to play it.
