Problem: The video I inserted into my PowerPoint presentation is not running smoothly, what can I do?
- If your video is not running smoothly, try turning your hardware acceleration down. If you use Windows 2000 or XP, then Right click the Windows desktop and choose Properties > Settings > Advanced. Click on the Troubleshoot tab and move the slider towards the left.
- If your Media file does not play or a blank box appears on the slide where you inserted the media file, rename the media file to a shorter file name so that the whole path and file name is not longer than 128 characters.
- It is always recommended to have the latest version of DirectX and Windows Media player installed for high quality presentations.
