Another sound issue between OS
Thanks for the info - I think I now know more than I ever thought I could
about powerpoint. Yes - all of the items concerning the MCI are very valid.
End result - I authored a Win 98 version and left the Win 2000/XP alone. To
get Win 98 to work I had to download a shareware WMA to WAV converter -
worked very well.
Then break the links, and reinsert the wav files then go through the
re-authoring process. If I had more patience I guess I could even work out
the slide timings to the audio - however all machines are not created
equal - what works on 3 or 4 machines fine works on the next 3 or 4 poorly
(timings are off).
Guess I am also discovering that using WAV files (larger) possibly taxes
more RAM space and correct playback would of course logically be affected by
small RAM and slower CD Rom drives.
End result if anyone cares is that you have to accept "best effort"
protocols and hope that people get the idea. Bottom line is the
presentation will always be perfectly timed and displayed from the Hard
drive on which it was created and stays.
