Why is widescreen 16:9 video playing back as standard format 4:3 when embedded in Powerpoint?

Hi folks,

After embedding widescreen video into a powerpoint presentation, it plays back in standard format.  How can I get my widescreen video that I embed in a .ppt to play back as a widescreen video in the .ppt?
