I have six small clips (.wmv) inside a PowerPoint 2007 slide (for Windows). If I set all the videos to play automatically only the first one starts playing.

Any ideas how to make them play simultaneously?

In the Animation tab, select Custom Animation. Select all your videos, and choose Add Effects -> Media (something similar) -> Play.

Once you see the play animations in the animation pane, select all of them, right click, and choose With Previous in the menu.

Thank you for the answer! Will try it out. :) – user649482 May 30 '11 at 0:55
Actually this is NOT entirely correct. It will work ONLY if autoplay is selected and all animations will stat playing start when the slide is changed. I noticed that sometimes removing and then re-adding the animations may fix some problems with Powerpoint 2013. – Bogdan May 31 at 0:26
