How do I embed a BBC news video within Powerpoint?

Can anyone confirm the exact steps to embed a BBC news video within a Powerpoint presentation?

I think I am on the right track with showing the Developer toolbar and then selecting the more controls button within this toolbar.

At thsi point however I am not sure which type of control needs to be added and what the correct code syntax is, including the URL required, to make the video automatically show during the Powerpoint presentation.

Apart from this, the best I can achieve is to hyperlink a URL to the news video, which needs to be clicked manually and would be a little disruptive to the presentation.

Any advice on this, or re. an alternative method to show the news article within the Powerpoint presentation, would be much appreciated!

no, this just confirms how to insert an audio or video file that you already have, which is relatively straightforward. BBC News files cannot be downloaded and so a link to the on-line news file needs to be created, whch seems to be very complicated.

I may be mistaken, but that functionality might not exist in PP2003/2007. I found an article that tells how to embed video in PP 2010, but if I read it correctly, in order to do it in 03 or 07 they still want you to download the file first and link to it, plus click on it. I've been experimenting with it and I agree with you. It's complicated.

Here is a link to stream capture software that specifically mentions capturing BBC news clips and saving them to your computer. From there you could link to it in Powerpoint and have it autoplay.
