Movie clip in Powerpoint

  EricMcC 22:21 17 Feb 2007

I've prepared lots of presentations using Powerpoint and displayed them with a Dell Laptop and Infocus X3 (XGA) projector. However, when I included a movie clip the display is different on the laptop screen and the projector. The movie clip has a lower resolution (640 x 480) so I expect it to use only part of the screen display area (like the laptop). Not so, as soon as I start the movie clip from Powerpoint I lose the projector image whilst it adjusts the display resolution to the movie clip. This means I get about three seconds of blue screen, missing the start before the projector adjusts. There is also an interruption at the end when I return to XGA stryle images.
