Powerpoint-2K .avi file looping

Powerpoint-2K .avi file looping

I've placed an .avi video file in a slide and it won't stop looping.  Anyone know how to get it to play only once.

RE: Powerpoint-2K .avi file looping

Make sure that you are in Slide View with the slide you have inserted the .avi file into.. Select Slide Show¬¶Custom Animation. A dialog box will open. Highlight the .avi file (which probably is known as Media1 or similar name).  

Click on the Multimedia settings tab in this dialog box. On the Slide Show menu, click Custom Animation, and then click the Multimedia Settings tab.

Select the options you want, such as Stop Playing After Current Slide.  You probably want the slide show to continue while the sound file is playing so you should probably also select Continue Slide Show.

Hope this helps..PPT 2K is so much better than 97....
