Chapter 9. Using Video in Presentations > Inserting Video into PowerPoint:Mac

Inserting Video into PowerPoint:Mac

You have two options when inserting video files into PowerPoint:Mac—one easy, one hard. The easy way is to use the Insert Movies and Sounds command, which allows you to bring in QuickTime, MPEG, and AVI files, but not Windows Media Video files.

The hard way is to insert a hyperlink to a Windows Media video or RealVideo file, which only works if you have RealPlayer and/or Windows Media Player for OSX installed. It’s hard because unless you configure PowerPoint to run the presentation in a window, as detailed below, PowerPoint will exit the slideshow when you click the hyperlink and run either player.
