I had a look at this site for a solution for my particular situation but was unable to find any that are specifically on point.
I have a Powerpoint presentation originally created using an older version of PP for WinXP (v.2003). I had embedded (NOT linked) AVI videos. These videos are no longer available to me (deleted accidentally a number of years ago).
The embedded PP videos work fine on a WinXP machine with PP2003 but not on a Mac with PP2011. I am unable to extract the video by a simple "save as" command to be able to save the video clip to the HDD; my strategy was to do this to then convert the video clip into a more usable format.
Any suggested solutions? Either ripping the video to convert and to embed link or to play the AVI directly in the PP on a Mac machine (runs Maverick)?
