Videos that are set to play across slides display over other shapes during playback in PowerPoint


You set a video to play across slides in Microsoft PowerPoint. When you play the video during a slide show, the video displays over other shapes. Additionally, any trim or effect that is applied to the video is not used during playback.


To work around the trim issue, insert the video on each slide. Then, trim the video appropriately on each slide.
