PowerPoint 2000: Windows Media Player movie embedded in presentation; sound won't work.
Posted on 2003-11-12
I have created a digital video clip and the resulting Windows Media Player file works great as a standalone clip (I get both animation and sound). However, when I embed the movie into a PowerPoint presentation (Insert/Movies and Sounds/Movie from File), the clip will play in the presentation, but there is no sound. My present workaround is to link to the file, which plays fine in a separate window. Eventually, however, I want this file to play within the PowerPoint slide as it should. I can't find anything in the KB about this problem. Any ideas?
