Autoplay movie from powerpoint
« on: September 02, 2010, 11:10:47 PM »
I have embedded a wmv movie file into a ppt presentation. The ppt and movie run fine in the ppt viewer. I have the movie set up as a slide in the middle of the ppt. On the TV's - the movie just sits there and will not start. After the movie slide transition time is up (45 sec), the ppt slides resume.

I have been fighting this for a bit -- any help would be appreciated.

Thank You - Tony

When you embed a media file such as a wmv file, you need to instruct the server to send this wmv file to the screen. There is an option to AddOnFile. To do that you must do it on the server side, expand the Screen Tab on the Office file by pressing the + sign, then you eneter the PPT file and also the AddOnFile.
