Specs: Windows Vista
Hi I'm trying to insert an .avi movie into Powerpoint presentation. File seems to be there as I can hear the audio, but the screen just shows a black screen and no images. Its a 50mb file, with a resolution of 1024 x 576. I'm on Windows Vista. Can anyone help?

You don't have the correct codec installed to view it.

An AVI format may not be the best choice for a PowerPoint presentation. AVI is just a container and could use one of a dozen different formats of video. Even if you got it working on your system, it would be hit or miss when you distribute it to others if that is your intent. I would suggest converting it to mpeg1 format. Pretty much every version of Windows (even back to Win98) will play mpeg1.
