You can add other types of movie files to your slides besides animated clip-art GIFs. For example, you can add video files stored on your computer, such as digital camcorder footage. Once you add a movie clip to your slide, you can move and resize the clip object just as you do other slide objects.
Supported Movie Files
PowerPoint supports popular video file formats, such as AVI and MPEG.
You can reposition your clip by dragging it to a new location. See Part 5 to learn more about working with slide objects on the slide.
Click Automatically to have the clip play automatically when the slide is displayed in your presentation, or When Clicked if you want to activate the clip manually.
Click and drag the clip to reposition it on the slide, or click and drag a handle to resize the clip.
Double-click the clip to play the movie.
My Clip Won't Play!
If you insert an animated GIF clip, it does not play when double-clicked. Use Slide Show view to view the clip.
Removing a Clip
To remove a clip from your slide, click the clip and press the Delete key on your keyboard.
Resizing Movie Clips
Use caution when resizing movie clips. Most video files play best at their original size. Enlarging the slide object can make the clip appear grainy during playback.
