AVI File will not play in Power Point

I have a avi file that I want to play within my power point slide show. The AVI is rather large 12 gb it is a 90 min video and I need it to play at the best quality. When I insert the video it appears to insert a green frame like where it is supposed to insert the video. I also have the play option when right clicking but when I select play it does nothing. I can play this file in media player just fine so I dont think it is a codec issue

Thanks Scott
