Additional information on video files in PowerPoint
The use of video files in PowerPoint is possible, but with some strict guidelines.
You will always have to copy / bring the video files separate from the PowerPoint.
PowerPoint will support the following extensions of video files: .avi, .wmv, .mpg en .mpeg. The QuickTime .mov format is not supported.
However the file extension implicates that there is a standard in the file, that is not the case. For production of a video a codec is used. This codec is used to efficiently store the video material. This can be seen as a sort of encryption. To view a file you will need the exact same codec as with the video has been made.
For use of video files in PowerPoint you will have to be aware that you only use standard codecs.
If you conform your presentation to these guidelines you can be ensured that your video files will play in PowerPoint
