anyone help me?

    • Greetings,

      I would reccomend editing it in Windows Movie Maker and cutting out the part

      that you don't want and save it as a new file. Then you can put it in. :-)

    • Once your mpeg is running, you can stop it at the point where you want to by

      advancing to the next frame. You may have to click twice, once to stop the

      video and the next to move to the next frame.

    • Peds,

      Something along these lines.

      windows xp

      start > run > mplay32

      File > open > your mpeg file

      edit menu > selection > from 00:xx:00 to 00:yy:00 > OK

      edit menu > copy

      powerpoint > paste

      Cheers
