I recently purchased a Kodak DX6340 Digital Camera. I would like to record videos to insert into Presentations for Compliance Training at our facility. The camera records just fine and will play in Quick Time Player; however, I want to play these movies in Windows Medial Player or insert into PowerPoint. I continue to get the message that the file is corrupt or not in a format that PowerPoint or that Windows Media Player will read. I have many times to associate the movie file with these applications or change to open in these applications and it does not work. I have also tried with numerous movie files. Any suggestions?

Quicktime movies won't play in Powerpoint

Windows Media files (.wmv) and MPEG files (.mpeg, .mpg) are good options to insert into Windows Powerpoint presentations. These file formats offer good quality video at small file sizes. Mpeg or Mpg is the better choice

MPEG files (.mpeg, .mpg) are good choices for cross-platform presentations with inserted movies.

Hyperlinked Quicktime movies (.mov) work well with the Windows Powerpoint application, but Quicktime must be installed on the computer.
