    Hi
    I cannot get embedded films to play in powerpoints that have been sent to me. When I try to play the video it says Quicktime not available. I have Windows Media Player, Quicktime and VLC Media Player installed on my laptop. Any advice would be welcomed as they are speaker presentations for a conference on Thursday morning.
    Many thanks

    Download the latest version of Quicktime and install it.

    If you have PowerPoint, not just a PowerPoint player, you can choose the properties of the video, and should be able to save it.

    When I right click on the video on the slide it is not giving me an option to choose properties. Is there another way to find the properties or on the format or playback menu options along the top. Do I need to look somewhere else?
