Chapter 10. Creating a Presentation with... > Inserting and Playing Media

Inserting and Playing Media

You can insert movies or sounds into a presentation by inserting them from the Clip Organizer or a file. Movies can be either animated pictures, also known as animated GIFs, such as cartoons, or they can be digital videos prepared with digitized video equipment. Movies and sounds are inserted as PowerPoint objects. When you insert a sound, a small icon appears representing the sound file, which you can hide during a slide show. You can modify videos and sounds so they play continuously or just one time. You can also view and play movies using the full screen. When Windows Media Player 8 or later is installed on your computer, PowerPoint supports its file formats. To play sounds, or sounds from video, you need a sound card and speakers.

Insert a Movie or Sound

Click the Insert menu, point to Movies And Sound, and then click a command to insert a movie or sound from the Clip Organizer or a file.

Locate the movie or sound you want to insert from the Clip Organizer or a folder.

Click the movie or sound you want in the Clip Organizer or click one from the dialog box, and then click OK.
