  • 2. Narrations: Moving the location of Sound (wav) files
    I have a whole bunch of presentations for which I attached voice narrations. I'm doing a major overhaul of all of then, but don't want to lose my originals. Therefore, I copy the whole director of powerpoint presentations, including a subdirectory that houses the narration Wav files, to a new directory. Unfortunately, the new location of Narrations is not recognized by the powerpoint files. The relative location of the ppt files and .wav files is the same, but, of course, the absolute location changed. Most office links figure this out and adjust accordingly. Apparently this is not so with powerpoint narrations. Is there any way to do a global search/replace to adjust/fix all the narration links? Thanks, Jim
  • 3. Thanks for the posts
    Thanks to all who replied to my question. I've send a feature wish to Microsoft for this one. My biggest problem with the absence of this feature is that the horizontal or vertical distribution of existing objects sometimes gets messed up when I add a new object (e.g. text box below or to the side) and align its center or middle relative to the existing one. Thanks again, all that input was useful.
  • 4. can i embed a midi file in ppt 2003
    I am trying to embed a midi file in a slide. When I insert it using the Insert / Sound from file option, it appears to be embedded, but when I play the presentation on another computer, the sound doesn't play. However, it doesn't appear on the Edit / Links menu as a link. Also, when I try to Package for CD, it can't find the file. I browse to it and get it copied on the CD, but it still doesn't play off the CD. So if it isn't embedded and it isn't linked, what is it and how do I get it to work?

I think you are trying to open the movie clip in PowerPoint. You must import 
the clip in PowerPoint to make it properly. To do is, open the PowerPoint, 
click on "Insert Menu" and Point to "Movie and Sounds" then click on "Moview 
from File".

The supported format that you can import in PowerPoints are:

While downloading the clip you must check the format of the clip. Either you 
can download and save a clip, it very much depends on the web-site. Some 
sites only allow you to watch the clip.

4.Powerpoint Mac: Backround Music/ Quicktime Trouble

I created a powerpoint slideshow on my Dell with a backround soundtrack, then 
I burnt the presentation on to a CD and opened it on my mac so that I could 
convert it to Quicktime for Youtube.
When I pressed "Make Movie" it did some stuff and then in the middle of 
writing the movie a notice popped up saying "audio file 
("MacHD/Users/Alice...") not found, the movie will be made without backround 
soundtrack" but "MacHD/Users/Alice..." wasn't even the file with the mussic 
in it. I clicked "OK" and it made the movie, but only the first slide had 
music on it.

Can someone tell me what's wrong?

5.Media Server on 2003 + PowerPoint 2003 = Trouble

I'm working with a Windows 2003 Server (Stanard) and PowerPoint 2003.  I 
downloaded the plug-in the "Online Broadcasting" add-on.  However when I 
configure the add-on to use the server in question, I get the error 
"PowerPoint was unable to locate the Windows Media Server at "SERVER_NAME".

I've checked a couple of places and found that Windows 2003 server no longer 
has the Online Broadcasting Service (server-side) available.  I've read that 
you can download the 2000 version, which i did, but the service won't 
start...I get an error.

Any suggestions!?
