Apart from the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio is there any other way of playing video backgrounds behind my PowerPoint text and slide content?
Technically yes. Crystal Graphics provide an application called PowerPlugs which allows you to play video backgrounds in PowerPoint behind your slide content at very low screen resolutions only.
What is the main difference between the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio and the Crystal Graphics PowerPlugs: video backgrounds player?
Comparing the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio against the Crystal Graphics PowerPlugs: video backgrounds player is difficult and perhaps unfair as the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio is a professional product created for presenters who need and demand professional results from using video backgrounds in their PowerPoint presentations. At best, the Crystal Graphics PowerPlugs: video backgrounds player can produce low resolution distorted PowerPoint presentations with video backgrounds, providing unsmooth and jerky play back with pixelated "fuzzy" slide text content.

Selecting one main difference both you and your audience will experience when viewing a 123PPT full motion full screen PowerPoint presentation with video backgrounds when compared to one from Crystal Graphics is performance.

The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio is a modern application that utilizes and maximizes performance even on older and more dated machines and is able to create and play your PowerPoint presentations with video backgrounds in full broadcast quality High-Definiton (HD) of 1920 x 1080, 1920 x 1200 and even higher screen sizes.

The Crystal Graphics solution cannot. It is an older application built around older technologies that has released bug fixes over the years and as such does not take advantage of modern system architecture and video drivers. As a result the Crystal Graphics PowerPlugs: video backgrounds player is only able to play your PowerPoint presentation with video backgrounds at the lowest possible screen resolution setting of 800 x 600 pixels.
Apart from performance are there any other major differences between the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio and the Crystal Graphics PowerPlugs: video backgrounds player?
