My fire department uses Presenter 8 to create SCORM packages with MS Powerpoint and load onto our LMS. We have one presentation with 4 slides that have embedded .mpg films on them. However, when we go to Presenter>Preview>Preview Slide, (it converts the .mpg file to flash, etc), and the "slide preview" comes up, we can hear the audio, but there is no video whatsoever. I followed the security settings guideline that was in another thread, regarding another issue with seeing video, and it did not work. I cannot even see the video when the presentation is published to the computer. I am working of the C:/ drive the whole time, and NOT via an external, network, thumb drive, or drop box.
When I do: Presenter>Insert>Video, I insert the file as an "All video files" under the "Files of Type" area. I CAN preview the file in the pane below. I click "OK", and the program does its thing, but when I then preview the slide, again, I hear audio, but see no video. AND, if I do Presenter>Insert>Video>Edit to that same slide that I just embedded the video file on, the editing window comes up and tells me that there's no file on the slide. What is more, when I afterwards try to re-embed/insert a video onto the slide, I get a cue telling me that there's already a video there, and asks me if I want to replace it.
This is a major LMS system module. Is there any way I can get real-time assistance, or can anybody email me? I'm open to suggestions, because I'm not an IT tech, I'm a firefighter/paramedic. Thank you for any assistance.
Try converting your video to FLV before inserting it into the presentation. The inline converter in Presenter is... well... simple. I've never had much faith in it and prefer to use the Adobe Media Encoder, http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=160&platform=Windows, or something like the AVS Video Converter, http://www.avs4you.com .
