Insert Flash Movies into PowerPoint slides

MS PowerPoint is a powerful and attractive tool to express your ideas to others. You can convey these ideas in more effective ways, if you are using movie files with your simple slides. The Flash movies are normally the best choice to add into PowerPoint due to its small file size.
Follow the given steps to insert the Flash Movies into PowerPoint Slides:
Make sure before inserting the Flash Movies into PowerPoint slides that you have installed the Flash Player on your computer.
First of all open the presentation in which you want to insert Flash movie file.
Now click on "Toolbar" option from the "View" menu and choose the option "Control Toolbox".
Here a small floating menu will appear with the title "Control Toolbox".

Using "Control Toolbox" toolbar, click on the icon that looks like hammer for more controls and scrolling the objects then choose the object "Shockwave Flash Object".
Now using your mouse pointer, draw the box size and position where you want to play a flash movie.
Now right click on box and select the "Properties" option.
A small properties dialog box will appear with different options.
Under the Alphabetic tab, click the option "Movie" and type the full file path of flash movie in blank cell next to Movie (for example d:\flash_file).
Again under same tab, set the property "True" for "Playing" and "EmbedMovie" objects to add and play the flash file automatically with slide. Here you can also set the Quality, Width, Scale and Windows Mode objects for flash file.
Finally close the "Properties" dialog box. Save your PowerPoint presentation and run it for test.
