Hey, I am preparing a little presentation for a school project and in my powerpoint presentation I wanted to insert a few videos.

I went to Insert>Movies and Sound>Movie from file then I selected my file and it made a black box that I then enlarged to cover my entire slide.

Problem is when I play my slideshow I can't see any pictures at all. I hear the sound but no pictures at all...

What could be the problem?

Which office version do you have and what kind of movie types are you trying to insert?

Why not try it again? when you place the video,im sure theres this box saying when would you start the movie? will it be automatically or when clicked
(try both options one at a time)also,make sure that the video is a Mpeg or AVI

Commander Gman tried both options 3 times to no avail...

Edit : Problem has been solved, I checked the Zoom to Full Screen and now the video plays in full screen, still doesn't play in the small box but at least it works.
