Adobe connect does not directly support most video formats only mp4 and flv and those also under strict specifications and if you want to share ppt files with enbedded , you need to convert it to swf first that you can do with adobe presenter and about the specifications of videos check this out .
FLV Specification-: Bitrate-: as low as 300 kbps (kilobits per second) for low quality video, to as high as 8,000 kbps for very high quality video ; Frame Rate-: 29.94 ; The bandwidth required for an uploaded video file depends on the bit rate of thepre-encoded FLV file being streamed and is unaffected by room settings
MP4 Specification-: Codec – H.264 format ,Dimensions – 880x586 (or around there) ,Frame rate – 29.97 FPS ,Bitrate ~ 500kb
Bill, I don't think Connect will ever play a video inside of a PowerPoint. I have always used a separate layout and play the video from that layout in a Share Pod
As far as mp4 vs. flv, I think there were several mentions in the old ConnectUsers forum that mp4s didn't work but flvs did (irony?).
I have not been able get a mp4 to appear on an iPad, but did have an flv play.
