  2. 2. 4. Run the Slide Show to view the video. The movie will not play automatically so you’ll have to click on the movie (e.g. black box) once only to start. IMPORTANT NOTE: Movie files inserted into PowerPoint are not embedded (as picture and sound files are) and are only linked to the document. You must keep the movie files and the PowerPoint presentation in the same directory or the movies will not play back. It’s best to run the movie files from your hard drive vs. a CD-R. This helps the video play back more smoothly. How to insert video into PowerPoint 2 Prepared by larry.kless@kp.org
