I downloaded a gif of two people shaking hands from Microsoft Clip Gallery Live at the following URL
While I'm on that web page the gif is animated. When I download the gif and double-click on it -> up comes IE4 and it is animated.
Problem is when I import it into a powerpoint presentation the gif is static. From my research this gif is only animated when used with a browser. Does anyone know of equivalent .avi files that will animate in a powerpoint presentation?
