Does the videos play well in Windows Media Player? If not, it deciates that there are not proper codec installed on your computer.Try to download and install some new codec from official: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/forpros/format/codecdownload.aspx. Go for codec references at: http://www.codecguide.com/

If the video plays well, please try the following methods:
Method 1.
1. Put video files and the PowerPoint presentation in a same folder.
2. Re-insert these files to PowerPoint presentation.
Method 2.
Insert -> Hyperlink, choose the video file you want to insert, and then click ok. After do this, you can click the hyperlink to view the video when present the slide show.

Method 3.
 1. Display the slide you want to insert video.
 2. Click the View menu in the menu bar, and then choose Toolbars in its child menu, later Control Toolbox to let Control Toolbox displayed. Choose More Controls which seems like hammer.
 3. In the succeeding dialog box, choose Shockwave Flash Object. Your cursor will change into a cross-hair - draw a rectangle anywhere on screen
4. Right click the inserted Shockwave Flash control, and then click Properties.
5. Click the Movie property > type the full drive path in the value column (the blank cell next to Movie), including the file name (e.g. C:a.swf) or URL (e.g. http://www.a.com/b.swf)
6. To make the Flash play automatically when the slide is displayed, set the Playing property to True;
7. Finally close the Properties window and save your presentation.
Method 4.
Convert your PowerPoint presentation to Flash use some third party presentation tools, PowerPoint to Flash converter, for instance.

Having problems getting my powerpoint slide to show from the laptop onto the screen. Not sure what the function key is?


try Fn key with F5 or F8. depends on your model of laptop.
Look for the screen symbol on one of the function keys and try pressing that once and wait several seconds to see the screen changing video. Then press again if not correct.

If nothing is appearing on the projector, then connect a lcd monitor on the laptop and try the function keys intil it works thyen swap the monitor for the projector, and start the input scan for the active video input.

My dell d630 laptop wont recognize my infocus lp70+ remote control and I can't advance my powerpoint slides with the remote control


Here's what the User's Manual says:


Using the Remote Control

To advance PowerPoint slides with the projector's remote, you

must connect the USB cable on the projector's computer cable to

the computer. See page 8 for more information.

Point the remote control at the projection screen or at the front or

rear of the projector (not at the computer). The range for optimum

operation is about 30 feet. If you point the remote at the

projection screen, the distance to the screen and back to the projector

must be less than or equal to 30 feet. For best results, point

the remote directly at the projector.


If you are displaying presentations in Microsoft® PowerPoint®,

you can use the remote's Previous and Next buttons to navigate

through your presentation while in Slide Show mode.

Hitachi cp-s240 remote question


Hitachi data projectors are able to function as a mouse using either the USB port or the control port located on the back of the projector.

However, they are not intended to be used as a remote presenter. This means that although you can use the remote as a mouse, you will not be able to change slides in a full screen slide show using powerpoint.

I recommend the Targus remote presenter for this purpose. This device will function as a mouse, pointing device, and will allow you to change slides in powerpoint. In addition, it's inexpensive, wireless, and small enough to easily fit in your pocket.

Switching to one program to another while on lcd projector


Alt-tab is the keyboard shortcut for switching between programs in windows.That will still show up on either display, though. There is a way, when two displays are hooked up, to display a power point presentation on one display and use the other for configuration. The only problem is that you'll still have to switch to movie maker, which may or may not support this feature (i'd imagine not).

Your best bet may be to actually export your movie maker video to a file then insert it into your power point:

see this tutorial:

Good luck!

Delay/ whitescreen when projecting video from laptop


1.
Connect the external display port on your laptop computer to the projection system, and then turn on the projector. For information about connecting external devices to your laptop, see the documentation for your laptop computer.
1.
Set the display resolution of your laptop computer to match the resolution of the projector system. First, on your laptop, open the Display Properties dialog box by using the Display icon in Control Panel, and click the Settings tab. Then, in Screen resolution area, move the slider to adjust the display resolution of your laptop. If you don't know which setting to choose, try 800 x 600 pixels; this is a common setting for many projector systems. YOURS sounds like 640x840.
3.
If you have audio in your presentation, connect a cable from your laptop's audio output jack to the audio input jack on the projector, and then test the volume by playing a file that contains sound.
4.
Start the Player on your laptop. If you want to only display the Player on the big screen, and not the desktop background, maximize the Player or set it to play your video using the entire screen (full-screen mode).
