    Video problems in Powerpoint

    I am trying to load a video into a powerpoint. I can have the sound playing but the picture is black. I've searched for an anwer and think it has something to do with the hardware acceleration. It was suggested to turn down the acceleration, but vista will not let me do that. Any ideas why I can't get the video (avi file) to play.

    Are you able to play the video outside of Powerpoint? Such as in Windows Media Player?

    If not, this could be a codec problem. Do you have the proper codecs installed, such as the k-Lite Codec Pack?

    Yes, I can play the video outside of power point. The sound plays, just not the picture.
