Adding Video to Your Slides
3. Open the Insert tab on the Ribbon, click Video in the Media group,
and then choose Video on My PC.
The Insert Video dialog box, shown in Figure 15-5, appears.
Figure 15-5: Inserting a video.
4. Select the movie that you want to insert.
You may need to scroll the list to find the movie you’re looking for or
navigate your way to a different folder.
5. Click the Insert button.
The movie is inserted on the slide, as shown in Figure 15-6.
6. Resize the movie if you want and drag it to a new location on the slide.
When you resize the movie, try to do it by using one of the corner handles.
If you drag one of the side handles, you distort the image.
To play the movie while you’re working on the presentation in Normal
View, double-click the movie. During a slide show, a single click does the
trick, unless you set the movie to play automatically. In that case, the
movie runs as soon as you display the slide.
You can also insert a directly from an online source by choosing Online
Video rather than Video on My PC in Step 3. Then, you can search for a video
online. Note that this option inserts a link to the online video, not the video
itself. That means that you must have a working network connection to play
the video, and if the owner of the video removes the video, the link won’t work.
