Insert video file into PowerPoint presentation:
Movie or animatied GIF:
Note A movie or .gif file that you've added to Clip Organizer (Clip Organizer: Microsoft Office program that contains drawings, photographs, sounds, videos, and other media files that you can insert and use in presentations, publications, and other Office documents.) is found in the Clip Organizer folder within the My Pictures folder on your hard disk. Or, go to the original location for these files.
Note to remember:
You can add movies and animated GIFs to slides from files on your computer, the Microsoft Clip Organizer, a network or intranet, or the Internet. To add the movie or animated GIF, insert it onto the specific slide using commands on the Insert menu. There are several ways you can start it: have it play automatically when the slide displays; click it with the mouse; or create a timing for it so that it plays after a certain delay. It can also be part of an animation sequence.
Although accessed through the Insert menu, movie files are automatically linked to your presentation, rather than embedded (embedded object: Information (object) contained in a source file and inserted into a destination file. Once embedded, the object becomes part of the destination file. Changes you make to the embedded object are reflected in the destination file.) inside it like pictures or drawings. When your presentation has linked files, you must copy the linked files as well as the presentation if you need to show the presentation on another computer.
