I can successfully load a video clip into a PowerPoint slide, but after I save, close and reopen the file, only the opening image of the video appears with no way to play it.

The Play/pause bar disappears as well.

I was told to trash the appropriate PowerPoint template and reopen the program, but I'm not sure which file to trash and where it sits.

Which version of PowerPoint exactly? Which template are you even using? One you designed yourself? Can you reproduce this with any video or any template? –  slhck Apr 20 '12 at 17:08
