"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi waltforbes,
Are you saying that you use a remote presenter when you show your presentations? When you insert your videos, you can choose the playback options. You might want to set the video to start automatically. If you insert the video as an object, you will not have that option
