How do you put a video clip onto PowerPoint?

Use the Insert > Movies and Sounds function from the pull-down menu. Find your video clip from your hard drive, then size and place it on your slide. Depending on your version, the program may also ask if you want the clip to play automatically, or on a mouse click. One thing to always remember with video clips is that Powerpoint DOES NOT EMBED the video clip to your .ppt file. It only LINKS the clip. Therefore, if you ever show the Powerpoint presentation from another computer, the video clip MUST be in the SAME folder as the .ppt file or the link will be broken. This is a very common mistake for Powerpoint users. That same rule applies for audio files over 100kb.
