Video in GoTo

I have video embedded in a PowerPoint and it cannot be viewed. I tested it in Windows media player (yes, I disabled hardward overlay) and it is choppy at best. Help!

    The path is correct - it works fine on my own computer, it just doesn't go over GoTo very well. In doing more research, I have found several sites that state GoTo is not good for showing video. So, now I am trying to find some kind of a work-a-round... maybe a flash file? I'm in a panic, I must say.

  • Tawnytll Feb 19, 2008

    Thanks so much for all the info... very informative - disappointing, but informative! The choppy part was via GoTo - it's smooth locally.



    I think I may have to beg to pay for the meeting to be streamed live... my boss is gonna kill me! She really wanted to save $ on this one..



    Thanks again!

This is actually quite common when using powerpoint files with online tools. From the guide:

"A current constraint of collaborative software (including
GoToMeeting) and the bandwidth connectivity to sites is that digital video-clips are NOT
transmitted satisfactorily. The sampling frame rate is not adequate for high quality motion.
To overcome this and provide the clips in their original quality to the virtual participants, the
transfer the powerpoint files and the associated video clips is undertaken as a routine
practice. They are then manually played at each site on adequate pausing and cueing from
you the speaker. It is advisable to confirm that they have viewed the clip before proceeding.
Given notorious incompatibility problems with wide variety of video standards, file formats,
proprietary codecs (for compression/decompression) and the main players (Windows Media,
QuickTime & Real), it is essential to have a technical pre-check of the clips completed in
advance at each site. This is scheduled for the inclusion in the technical testing on the
Wednesday immediately prior to your seminar.
NO audio track should be included with the video clips. This avoids the potential problems of
audioinstabilityor‘howl-around’totheconferenceandallowsyoutoprovidethesingle
commentary."

Sorry that formatting is a little sloppy. Hope this helps, and I'm not sure about the last part of what you said, in regard to media player being choppy. Were you saying that you played the source video locally in media player and it was choppy? Cause that would be another issue ;)

    Another note - Flash can work well for these applications, but the effort it would take to develop what you need in it may be prohibitive. I am not away of any plug-and-go flash presentation setup around (though it'd be sweet wouldn't it?)

    Good luck!

Flash is going to have a similar problem. You are being constricted by the amount of screen space you are refreshing. The smaller the screenspace that is being refreshed, the faster it will transfer to your attendees.

Cannot watch video in my computer


Update the media player to the newest version.
When media players go through upgrades, new codecs are often added to the player along with new features.
These new codecs give the player an ability to play videos in additional formats.
Download and install a codec pack for your computer-based media player from a codec website, like Free-Codecs.

See Below
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm
The K-Lite Codec Pack, for instance, contains multiple codecs and works with multiple media players, which gives all of the media players that are installed on your system the capability to play any video file that uses those codecs.
Once you download a codec pack, go to the "Downloads" folder on your computer, right-click the codec pack and choose "Extract All" to extract the codecs and move the codecs into a folder on your "C:" drive.
The codecs integrate into your computer-based media players automatically.

Get a new player. If you have updated your player and installed all of the available codecs, and video still won't play in the player, the player may just not have the necessary components to play your video files.
Download and install a new player, such as Winamp or the VLC Player, to your system.
http://www.real.com/realplayer

http://download.cnet.com/Winamp/3000-2141_4-10251792.html
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
Personal Media Players
Find out which video formats your media player accepts.
This information should be provided in the user's guide that came with your player. iPod, for instance, accepts video only in the M4V, MP4 and MOV formats, according to the Apple website.
Convert the video file to a format supported by your personal media player in an online conversion system.
Some online systems that can make video conversions include Movavi Online Convert and YouConvertIt.
Remove the original video file from the media player using the player's software, such as iTunes for iPod devices.
Then, add the new video file to the software library and drag the new file to the device.
Once the video is in the correct format, the codecs in the media player should read the converted video file.

How to play wmv files


Windows Media Video, or WMV files, is a type of video that can be played on your computer and portable media players. In the past, computer users have been known to have difficulties opening these files due to a flaw in Windows Media Player or the WMV file. These issues have since been resolved with the newer versions of Windows Media Player and other similar media players. WMV files should now open and play with ease.

Begin by downloading the latest version of Windows Media Player (see link in Below). http://www.filewin.net/Windows-Media-Player/download/?p=AU-DNM Windows Media Player is the default player for Windows Media Video files. If you have just purchased a new computer, the computer probably already has the latest version of the program. Right click on the WMV file you want to play. Select "Open With." Several different programs will appear in a small box. Choose "Windows Media Player." Windows Media Player will then open on your computer. Wait for the WMV file to load. When it does, a message may appear in Windows Media Player informing you that the WMV file is missing an extension. Click "Yes" and Windows Media Player will still attempt to load the file. The WMV file should then begin playing in Windows Media Player. Hope this helps.

Every time I try to play a youtube video, a message pops up saying Firefox has encountered a problem and has to close.


There are three possibilities.

Make sure FireFox is fully updated
From the menu at the top of the browser goto Help > Check for updates

Make sure you have all the essential media codec's:

Ensure that you have updated both Flash and Quicktime Player
