Presenter '13: Could Not Find the Video File

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

If you encounter the following error message when attempting to edit a video in Presenter '13, it indicates the original *.ppta file for your presentation is missing.

"Could not find the video file - <file path>"

Videos and other presentation resources are stored in the *.ppta file that corresponds to your PowerPoint file. Without the *ppta file, Presenter won't work properly.

If this presentation was transferred from another computer, you may need to check its previous location for the original *.ppta file. When you find it, place it in the same folder as your PowerPoint file, and make sure both files have the same name.
