Customer Question

I'm creating a PPt presentation. I've embedded a video from you tube. It has installed fine, and I've set it to begin automatically when the slide comes on. However, while the video appears with a white arrow, and I can play the video by clicking the white arrow, it will not play automatically when the slide comes up. Any ideas?

Yeah, as far as i know there is no way to pass the start via PPT, BUT you can cut into a video mid stream and it should just play, or at any point. I did it as an example to a band i like (You will hate them!) to show you how it would work, if you think this is a good idea, just send me the URL for your video and I will do the same for you.

example below, we can cut in at any point, .05 seconds in, etc
