PPT Slide with Embedded Video

If you ever personally need to embed video in a Powerpoint presentation or have a patron who needs help, this article is very useful: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291879/. Normally, when you embed videos using the shortcut provided by PPT, the video experiences huge delays in playback. The link I provided explains how to use Windows Media Player in place of the PPT defaults to avoid a delay. The only issue with embedding video this way is that you end up with a player on your slide, but at least a player is more aesthetically pleasing than a video with real time audio and delayed video.
