Try embedding the .mov file
Let me know the results.
That is what I have been doing to try to insert my .mov into the Powerpoint slide.
Like I said, Powerpoint tries to insert the file then says it is closing down
Powerpoint doesn;t natively support .mov files.Check the link below for list of supported formats
But after installing quicktime it should work fine in your case.
Anyway we will try a different solution.TRy converting the .mov file to .avi format and then importing it to powerpoint
Install Quicktime and Rad Video Tools.Launch Rad Video Tools1. Select the Quick Time File you want to encode2. Click on "Convert a file"1. Select under "Output type..." the type "Avi-File" and click on browse to select the output dir/file2. Hit Convert.
1. Now RAD Video Tools aks you for the compression format. I prefer Pic Video MJPEG Codec with quality 20 because it take not much webspace and have good quality, but you can of course use another.
Now you have the AVI File. IMport it to powerpoint/
I have file converters for audio and video that work already, so I can do that already.
I know that PPT 2010 can play .mov files because I have another PC that can do it.
I have tried the same .mov in that other computer and it embeds in the PPT slide with no problem.
So I am looking for solutions to specifically get the .mov files working because I have alot of them and don't want to always have to convert them
Yes I have quicktime installed on my computer. I am going to reinstall to see if any addins need to be connected to the new version of office.
