NOTE (1)
(i.e. I create the folder "PRESENTATION", in this folder I copy all the files I need for the presentation, with PowerPoint I create the presentation inserting the video that are located in the "presentation" folder, then I save everything in the "presentation" folder)

NOTE (2)
To avoid this, follow these steps: Select the slide where you want to insert the Video, select "Video and Sounds ..."from menu “Insert", then click "Video from file ....". Select the video you want, and press the "OK" button. When asked "Play movie automatically during the presentation?" Choose "Yes".
