In PowerPoint for Windows, use the file/insert – Movies and Sounds – Movie from a File method. "Movies" are desktop video files with formats such as AVI, QuickTime, and MPEG, and file extensions such as .avi, .mov, .qt, .mpg, and .mpeg. Whether your movie file plays in PowerPoint or not depends on your version of Microsoft Windows, your version of Windows Media Player, and the video formats installed on your computer. If your movie clip will not insert or doesn’t play, you will have to convert it to a file format that PowerPoint supports. See the topic: How do I convert a movie file so it can be played in PowerPoint?
