Modifying the Link

After that, modify the link according to your preference.

  • start= indicates the beginning point of your video that you want to show in your PPT and it should be in seconds. So, change the value "8" to a number of your choice..
  • end= indicates the ending point of your video that you want to show in your PPT and it should be in seconds. So, change the value "16" to a number of your choice.
  • autoplay=1 will make the video to play automatically during the slideshow.
  • autoplay=0 means you have to click play in the video for it to start playing during the slideshow.

Copy the entire link and this is the link that you are going to paste in your PPT.

Adding the Video to PPT

Open your PPT. Click Microsoft icon and then PowerPoint options. Put a checkmark in Show Developer Tab in ribbon and click OK. Now, you can see the developer tab in the PPT ribbon.

Click the wrench icon. Select Shockwave Flash Object.

Now, your cursor will become a crosshair and use this to draw a box. This is the video box and it acts like an object. Right click over this box and click Properties.

In the Properties box, go to the movie column, paste the link that we had earlier copied in this location, and click the cross-mark and close the box.

      I got the clip to appear in my powerpoint slide, but how do I reset it for each time I come to the slide?

      The presentation I have is being looped. The video plays the first time through but will not play anytime after that. What do I need to do to have the video replay every time the slide comes up again?
