Yea the movie file is linked to the file on your c: drive and I would think you would need to put the file on the server then link to it in powerpoint

you have to point it to the file on the server.

Normally, you would want to create a file structure for your site and all the content that is in it.

i dont know if you need special tags for power point, but you would want to enter the code that points to the directory that the power point is stored in.

im going to look and see how ppt is added.

wait, your saying that they can see the power point, just not the movie?

If thats the case, just change the path of where the movie is.

You need to replace, c:\blahblah\path\blahblah, to rootofserver\whateverfolderthemovieis\themovie.avi (or mpg, or whatever.)
