I am having an issue with embedding a video (hosted online) within PowerPoint. If the user clicks on the hotlink, the video doesn't STREAM, but waits until the entire file is downloaded. How can I configure the link so that the default video player (WMP or VLC or ???) will start STREAMING the video from the host site immediately?? The video file is 240MB, so depending on the user's connection it takes anywhere from 5-20 minutes before the video even starts playing! :frown:

The PPT file can be e-mailed, but the video cannot due to the file size. If I enter the direct URL in WMP or VLC, it WILL play as a stream, but only by manually opening the file from the player menu.

Suggestions??
