My movie plays too slowly or is choppy

Cause: Formatting or effects were applied to the movie

Solution:    Remove the formatting or effects from the movie object

Adjustments to the movie that are made by using corrections, color, or crop may cause the movie to play at a slower frame rate in normal view, or when you play the slide show. In addition, applying effects such as 3-D rotation, reflection, or shadow can cause the same problem.

  1. On the slide, click the movie that you want to change, and then click the Format Movie tab.

  2. Under Adjust, click Reset.

    Format Movie tab, Adjust group

    All formatting and effects that were applied to the movie object are removed.

Cause: The movie was resized on the slide

Solution:    Delete the movie, and then add it again

Increasing the size of the movie on the slide can cause it to play at a slower frame rate and vice versa. For best results, keep the movie at the size it was inserted to the slide.

  1. On the slide, click the movie that you want to delete, and then press DELETE .

  2. To add the movie again, do one of the following:
