    Need help with PowerPoint

    I have to give a presentation using powerpoint and I am inserting some video files.
    The files I am using are .AVI
    When I insert them into my presentation and click to play them, the screen goes black. The video plays because I can hear the sound, but the screen is just black.
    Anybody know how to solve this?

    I recommend checking out this web site. It is likely a codec issue I would think.

    Free PowerPoint Video Clips, Free PowerPoint Video Background

    Alright, fixed it. I guess it had to be a .WMV or .MOV file. Thanks again for that link!
