To prevent possible problems with links, it is a good idea to copy the movies into the same folder as your presentation before you add the movies to your presentation.

  1. In Normal view, click the slide to which you want to add a movie or animated GIF file.
  2. On the Insert tab, in the Media Clips group, click the arrow under Movie.Insert tab image
  3. Do one of the following:
    • Click Movie from File, locate the folder that contains the file, and then double-click the file that you want to add.
    • Click Movie from Clip Organizer, scroll to find the clip that you want in the Clip Art task pane, and then click it to add it to the slide. Tip You can preview a clip before you add it to your presentation. In the Clip Art task pane, in the Results box that displays the available clips, move your mouse pointer over the clip’s thumbnail, click the arrow that appears, and then click Preview/Properties.
