As far as I know, you can not actually "embed" video in PPT versions prior to 2010. I won't mind if someone tells me I'm wrong...

Review the info found here - carefully - since some posts appear to be inaccurate. Read the entire thread.

You can also search that group for other info related to including videos in PPT presentations.

Are you sure you actually "embedded" the video and not had it in the same file folder as the presentation?

I'm no PPT expert, but from what I read in various forums, it can't be done. 2010 does it by default.

Again, I won't mind being proven wrong. Google around and see what you can find. We don't get a lot of PPT questions in this forum, but there might be someone lurking in the background who can help you.
