How to stop video from restarting with e

By knee ·
I have put a video file in the master slide. I want it to play throughout the entire Powerpoint presentation. But when the slide transitions and goes to the next slide, the video restarts.
How can I stop this?
Using Powerpoint 97.
Thanks,
Karen

You probably have the mouse adjustment set to start the video as soon as the next slide starts. Go to the menu "slidepresentation" and choose actions. Here you can change youyr settingsJust make sure you use actionbuttons for video-start only on the slide with the video. If you have action-buttons on all slides just remove them. You can always go to the next slide during a presentation with a click of your mousebutton.Also , when using the action buttons, make sure you look at the actions window in the slide-presentations menu.

By putting it in the master slide, it will be copied on to every slide so when you move to another slide, it will automatically restart.
Try having it in a slide and all your wordings moving in and out, this would work and I think that's what you intended.

If it is more like a multimedia presentation, you should not be using PowerPoint but be using a multimedia software like Director or Flash.
