Inserting a clip as an external object

There will be times when you will prefer your video to play in an external video application like Windows Media Player instead of inside your PowerPoint presentation. Maybe you want the player's extra features or maybe PowerPoint won't play your file type, but the other program will. When you would like your video to open up outside of PowerPoint insert it as an object. Inserting the video as an object instead of a clip will display an icon on the slide instead of the video itself. To do this, let's go to our fifth slide, Quick Internet Spot.

Click on the Insert ribbon and the on the Object button on the right middle, the Insert Object dialog box appears. Change the left radio button to Create from File, since we're not going to create a new video from scratch right now. Click on the Browse button, then navigate to the file that you want. Choose 10s_video. Double click on it or click on it and then click OK. Now, you're back on the dialog box.

If you want the media clip...
