Topic: Can I use Flash movies with video backgrounds in PowerPoint?

I know the 123ppt video backgrounds studio lets me use video backgrounds in powerpoint which is cool. But...I was wondering...can I also use it to import Flash movies onto my slides?
I have a Flash game that I would love to insert onto a slide in my presentation and then upload my presentation to my site so the presentation can play online.
Does the 123ppt video backgrounds studio allow me to do this? If I can import Flash movies using the 123ppt video backgrounds studio will your software import Flash movies made in Adobe Flash CS5?
Thank you for your help,

welcome to the 123PPT Community and PowerPoint Forum.
The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio for PowerPoint allows you to add video backgrounds to your presentations and play video backgrounds behind the text and photos on your PowerPoint slides.
The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio allows you to import all popular video file formats including:
In addition, the Deluxe Edition of the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio also allows you to import YouTube movies and play YouTube movies in PowerPoint.
Because Adobe Flash is not a video file format, the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio cannot import it.
Adobe Flash is a proprietary file type which means while most web browsers now accept the Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Active X control as a standard. If you want to play Adobe Flash on your computer outside of the browser you would need to have the Adobe Flash Player installed to play the file.
As an object, Adobe Flash can be imported into PowerPoint, but bear in mind that if you are playing Flash in PowerPoint on a PowerPoint slide then either Flash or PowerPoint would be active. For example, let us say you embedded an Adobe Flash game on your PowerPoint slide. When you launch PowerPoint you could get the Adobe Flash game to start playing but how would you proceed to your next slide? Your keyboard controls would be active in the Flash object and be impacting the Flash movie not PowerPoint itself.
If it were an Adobe Flash movie, for example animation, then naturally once the animation had finished the object control would stop and control return to your PowerPoint slides.
My point LittleMinx is that while you can import an Adobe Flash movie into PowerPoint, the two formats are not incredibly compatibile with each other and in truth if anything are competing presentation formats.
I would advise that if you want to add a game made in Flash to your web site that you add this througth HTML and the <Object> HTML tag rather than embedding the Flash file into a PowerPoint slide where it naturally will not operate and function as well as it would otherwise using the Adobe Flash browser plugin.
