hello...

how can i add a video clip to an email eblast in Outlook?  

possible to autolaunch when open email versus recipient to launch.

i use JPEGS for eblast in Outlook.  video clip will be MOV.  other file types suggested for this to happen?

as an attachment, I tried PPT Show (auto ppt) but it doesn't automate the video or allow to click on it to run.

thanks in advance for your replies...

I don't believe that any email clients including Outlook allow any active content to run.  No movies, no javascript, no Flash.  That would have be in a link to a source on the web.

Sorry to concur with the above, it cannot be done. In the sake of conservation of bandwidth you should not include the video as an attachment it will be costly at your end AND each recipients end as well.  Either post the link to the file or to a webpage that has the video as an auto play (personally I detest auto-play videos but that is just my 0.02)

What do you want a video or a PowerPoint or a PowerPoint presentation that also includes a video?

Why don't you save it all as a video?

thank you all for chiming in with a thought/possible solution. all content had to be self-contained no web link.  

i ended up creating a PowerPoint Show presentation, imbedded video with delay, saved JPG page for actual visual imagery within eblast, but with note to click attached PPSX for exciting exclusive video promotion.

once clicked it automated into a PPT Show and video started to play within a few seconds.

success and all loved it!

again thank you all for your efforts and solutions...
