I want to add a QuickTime movie (.mov) to my presentation

An Apple QuickTime movie (.mov) file cannot be inserted into a Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 presentation. To play a QuickTime movie during your presentation, do one of the following:

  • Create a hyperlink to the QuickTime movie. During your presentation, click the linked object or text, and QuickTime for Windows will start and play the movie automatically.

  • Convert the file to a Microsoft Windows video (.avi) file or other compatible multimedia file format that Office PowerPoint 2007 can insert. You can use some versions of QuickTime, such as Pro versions, to convert the file. For more information, consult your QuickTime documentation, or see the Apple QuickTime Web site.
