By default, your video will play on the slide just as you designed it. But there may be times when you want your video to expand out, to take up the full screen for maximum visibility. Here's how to make that happen. I'm on slide 6 of my presentation and I'll click on my video to select it. Go up to the Video Tools Ribbon and click on the Playback tab. In the center are a series of Video Options. Find the option that says Play Full Screen. Put a checkmark in that box. Now, play your slideshow again and when the video starts, it'll take up the whole screen.
(Male speaker: Hansel and Petal is awesome. It's actually where I go overtime.) When the video is done playing, the overlay will disappear and you'll be back to your slideshow. Now keep in mind that if your video was filmed at low resolution or saved at a small size, your playback may be fuzzy or pixilated. But when you want to play your video with maximum visibility and minimum distraction, checking off Full Screen will be just the trick.
