Convert to avi and or .wmv and then insert it.  That's the best thing to do IMO.

As long as you have the QTVR ActiveX control installed, you can insert all sorts of QuickTime files inside PowerPoint. They'll play seamlessly on all machines with the QTVR control installed. The QTVR control itself costs US$150.
