I'm looking to play a video slide in PowerPoint 2011 (for Mac) that was created in PowerPoint 2010 (for PC). This video is embedded into the slide, and I'm pretty certain that the video is in WMV format. One option would be to go back and convert the video to MP4 and re-insert the video. But I'm looking for a long term option where videos embedded with WMV codecs can be played on PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.
For reference, I'm using fully updated Office 2011.
I'm using Yosemite 10.10.2 on MacBook Air (early 2014).
I've installed VLC, which seems to be a stand-alone player that won't help me play videos inside PowerPoint. I've installed the $5.95 version of Flip4Mac, which also doesn't seem to help play videos inside of PowerPoint.
I'm more of a PC guy than a Mac guy, so I'd appreciate any help that you can provide.
