Default gray background on video imported in PPT

Hi all,



I imported a video in PPT with a white background.
In PPT, the background is gray. I imported .wmv, .mov, .avi
and the problem appears on each format.

I have windows XP and microsoft 2007. I tried to play
it on vista and the background is perfect.

What can I do? Any ideas?

thanks

Is the video MOV can be played on Vista? MOV cannot be inserted in PPT.

You can set your PPT backgroud with right click the slide

And, if all the settings are the same, I think you don't have the right Codec on your XP computer.

Have you played the original video (BEFORE it has been imported) on your XP system?

It's possible that it's your video settings that are the issue - maybe your contrast or brightness settings are out of whack!

I just played the wmv without PPT and I saw that the white
background is gray.

The original video is a .mov and the background is white.
I imported it in Sorenson Squeeze do make a .wmv. and the background
turns to gray.

So, do you know which type of codec I need?
In sorenson squeee, I used wm video v9.

Or maybe it's not the good compression?

Thanks for your help....

Try looking for some other free convertors, until you find one that doesn't grey out the background!
