Why does nothing seem to happen when I click
It takes a long time for PowerPoint to make the
video. Curiously enough, it does not notify you
when it is done. However, while it is working, you
see a status meter and Cancel button at the bottom
in the status bar. When the status meter disappears,
the video is done.
Why would I want to change the resolution?
The higher the resolution of your video, the bigger
the file, and the more memory it takes to run it.
This affects load times and sometimes the quality
of playback if computer resources are limited. The
Resolution drop-down list has settings for the
Internet and for portable devices. You can change
the resolution for your target audience.
