You can play videos in PowerPoint presentations easily. Learn to use the PowerPoint insert video function in this free lesson.
The Playback tab has several options you can use to edit your video. For example, you can trim your video to play an excerpt from the original, add a fade in and fade out, and add bookmarks that allow you to jump to specific points in the video.
Most of the features on the Playback tab can only be used with videos that are inserted from a file. They will not work with embedded videos.
There are other options you can set to control how your video will play. These are found in the Video Options group on the Playback tab.
