How do I play a video from the middle?

PowerPoint allows you to play a video from any point within the video. You need to configure the timings to get the desired effect.

In PowerPoint, after inserting the video, do the following:

  1. Select the movie shape that you inserted on the slide.
  2. In PowerPoint 2007, select Animations tab, click Custom Animations button.
    In PowerPoint 2003/2002, right-click the selected shape and select Custom Animation... menu item.
  3. In the Custom Animations pane, select the play animation dropdown box and select Effect Options... menu item. The play animation for a video looks like the right arrow head: Video Play
  4. Select From time in the Start playing section and enter the time when you want to start your video in that box.
  5. Click OK button.

This will make PowerPoint start the video at the time when you want instead of the beginning.
