PowerPoint 2010 Video Pipeline: video handling
Logic: understand the high end video handling in
Video in PowerPoint is no longer thrown to the Media
Control Interface (MCI) Player or Windows Media (WM) Player. DirectShow
is the rendering engine in PowerPoint 2010, and it really shows! More on
rendering later. First, though, some facts:
Version 2010 still respects video inserted into legacy
files (that is, files created in previous versions of PowerPoint). A
video in a PowerPoint 2007 created file will still throw to either the
MCI or WM Player, unless converted.
To convert a video into the 2010 format:- double click
the video or go File | Info | and the Convert button.
Upgrade a video inserted from a previous version of
PowerPoint (E.g. 2007).
Use BackStage to upgrade a video in PowerPoint 2010
My suggestion is to upgrade your video at all cost!
