A Method of Unifiying Video Play with Other Animation in Slides

Have you got tired of looking at the control bar when you need to play a video in a big and important presentation, with hundreds or even thousands of audiences? Everything else is so perfectly in control, with only one press of the remote in your hand. But when it comes to video playing, which is almost an essential element to a successful presentation, you have to stare at the screen the whole time and click on the video to stop it so you can comment. Even if you predefine the start and end points for each segment, you still need to operate on the integrated program or video, which cannot be done by a simple left click anywhere on the screen or on your remote in Slide Show mode.

Our invention can help you control video playing in slides by a left click anywhere on the screen, just like what you do for other actions in a slide show. No more specific operations are needed for video playing.

By integrating the start and end points in video playing into slides as animation, we can control video playing in a presentation with only a click of the mouse anywhere on the screen or on the remote. We no longer need to operate on the integrated program or video specifically.

1. Insert a video


2. Right-click the video to call out the menu and select "Play options".
