Fixing a WMV glitch with PowerPoint 2007 in Windows
March 18, 2009 5:49 PM   Subscribe

I am embedding WMVs in a PowerPoint. They play well from slide-to-slide on a Mac, but when played back on PC, each video begins with a glitch.

The files aren't too long, but there isn't much there other than WMV files. PowerPoint is used to sequence and control playback. It's the tool of choice so others can make changes to the file if they need to. So, sticking with PowerPoint: what can I try to eliminate the glitch with WMV playback on PCs.
(This is PowerPoint 2007 on XP, but the problem also occurs in Windows 7. The WMV files are in the same folder as the PPT.)

Do the files play OK in Windows Media Player?

When you say glitch, can you be more specific?

Maybe add some black (or another color or pattern similar to your template) to the head and tail of the video?
