Windows 7: Unable to present video clip PPT 2007

05 Apr 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32bit
Unable to present video clip PPT 2007


I recently upgraded to the MS 2007 Enterprise suite on our media computer, and having trouble playing video in PowerPoint. I insert my movie via Insert > Movie > Movie From File. I found out that if I right-click and Preview the movie, it will play fine in my slide, however when running the slide show it will play only audio.

  • It will play audio only either when asking it to start automatically or on click.
  • It is listed as MS Compatible files (WMV).
  • The movie is located on the PC locally in the same folder as the PPT.
  • The movie plays fine in Windows Media Player.
  • I've read through "Compatible multimedia file formats" and "My movie doesn't play" articles on MS website regarding version 2007.
  • I've installed the "Windows Essentials Media Codec Pack" from
Please advise, any help is greatly appreciated!

I believe that there is a limit on the size of that file, so super large files would not work.
Also, I would convert video into another format supported by MS Office 2007 like MPEG or ASF.
