Hi thanks for your input. It took a while but I finally managed to get a video clip in my presentation. I have also told it is better to save the link on another slide in case the video doesn't play or will that cost me more money. Thanks

Hi Trisha, glad you got it working! I know little problems like this can be quite frustrating.

As for saving the link in another slide, I have to say I've never heard. Once you have the video properly embedded it SHOULD play as long as you have an active Internet connection.
