Try and use AVI and MPEG files for maximum cross-platform compatibility.

My wife works in marketing/market research using windows equipment. A PPT presentation was put together (on windows machine) and included in it are short videos of "groups". The presentation plays on my wifes wintel machine, but a colleague of hers is unable to play it on her MAC. I do not know what OS vs. the colleague is using but believe that it is OS X. The imbedded videos do show up as stills, but do not play as video. They are wmv files and she has the wmv player for MAC installed. Should they play as videos or is this feature not possible on PPT for MAC? If it is possible to play them, are you able to provide directions to a site where instructions for playing them can be found? Is the problem due to the wmv file. If so, is there a file converter to change the wmv files to something that will work? Thanks in advance for whatever assistance you are able to provide.
