There is a Hide While Not Playing check mark on the Video Tools Playback tab. What does this option do?
Presenters often do not want a video to be visible when it is not playing. A slide appears uncluttered if the
video is hidden, and it can provide a dramatic effect by fading in when it starts playing. If you click to the
Hide While Not Playing option ( changes to ), the video will not be visible during the slide show if it
is not playing. There is a disadvantage, though: To use this feature, you must set the video to play
automatically, so you lose some control over when the video plays.
