    I am trying to insert video clips into a Powerpoint 2000 presentation. When I follow the instructions I do not get the video clip dialog box coming up it just goes straight to a selection of clips in a particular folder. If I then click on a clip nothing happens. I am trying to insert avi files from my digital camera.

    That version of PowerPoint may not be compatible with videos in that particular 'avi' format (strictly speaking, 'avi' is not a format, it's just a "container" for the file. The actual format of the video could be any one of several types).

    Will Windows Media Player play them? If not, the required codec is missing.
