Inserting Windows Media Video into Power Point
October 20, 2013 12:44 PM Subscribe
I have spent the last 3-4 hours trying to embed a video from Windows Movie Maker into a power point (yes, I am that inept at computers!). I keep getting this message when I try to insert it:
"Power Point cannot select a video from the selected file. Verify that the necessary codec for this media format is installed and try again." I've followed link after link and am really tired. Help!

I am using Windows Version 7 and have Power Point 2010 (Does this matter?) Also, I have tried two different kinds of video cameras with the same result. I have created a windows movie that I have saved and can watch in Windows Movie Maker, but when I click the Insert, Video from Power Point that pesky message comes up. I have been told to download Encoder so I did. I tried to covert the file, but it is very complex with little help for people like me. Anyone, am I having this problem because of old windows or power point? Why does everone else in the universe tell me it was easy to do this? Help!!! Thanks all.
