Play DVDs in a presentation

How can I play movies from a DVD in my presentation?

PowerPoint MVP Austin Myers has written:

"If you have a working DVD software package, have you tried inserting it as an "object"? This usually works quite well ... you can use an ActiveX control or if your existing DVD player supports OLE (as a server) it can be used. "

Better yet, the same Austin Myers has written PFC (Plays For Certain) Pro, which does just what the name suggests: makes sure it plays. For certain. Automatically. Austin's the wizard at this stuff so you don't have to be.

Another option is Onstage DVD.

As with all software mentioned on the PowerPoint FAQ, we recommend that you look for vendors who supply demo versions you can test with.
