Playing Movies and Sounds

After you insert movie or sound objects, you can modify them so they play continuously or just one time. Movies and sounds can play in either Normal view or Slide Show view. You can also view and play movies using the full screen. When you install Windows Media Player 8 or later on your computer, PowerPoint supports its file formats, including ASX, WMX, M3U, WVX, WAX, and WMA. To play individual sounds, or sounds from video, you need a sound card and speakers .
