For some reasons, animated GIFs have stopped working for me in PowerPoint 2003 (on Win XP SP3). This is a problem only with new files - I do have some old presentations where animated GIFs are shown just fine, but when I try to insert a new GIF into a presentation, only the first frame is displayed (both in editing mode and presentation mode).
I first tried inserting the GIF as an image, to no avail. The MS help pages say that I should use the menu "Insert" - "Movies and Sounds" - "Movies and Sounds from file...", but that doesn't even give me .gif as a file extension for a movie. And if I insert it anyway, it doesn't work either.
Any idea what else I could try?
The GIFs work fine in the Windows Explorer or in a browser.
