There will always be some delay in the movie starting (as the movie file
loads), but here are a few suggestions that may help.
Big number one) Reduce the size of the "very large PPT file." The less the
computer has to sift thru, the faster it can run. Check out the info at:
**Why are my PowerPoint files so big? What can I do about it?
2) Always run the presentation from the hard drive, never from a CD. You
did not say you were doing this, but ...
3) General housekeeping. See info at:
**PowerPoint gets the SLOWS
**General troubleshooting procedures
4) Add a blank slide AFTER the slide with the video. PowerPoint tries to
work ahead on the next slide where it can. If you reduce the work-load, it
may run faster.
Post back if these do not improve the movie delay.
