How do I download videos?
All of the Texas Driver's Quiz videos are available for download in both Windows Media® and QuickTime® formats. While both Windows and Macintosh® systems can play both Windows® Media and QuickTime formats, generally Windows users prefer Windows Media format and Macintosh users prefer QuickTime.
We supply two sizes of media files for each format. Choose Small if you are on a dialup or slow DSL connection, or if a short download time is more important to you than video quality. Choose Large if you have a fast broadband connection.
- Click the link for the file with the video format and size you want to download. A dialog box appears, allowing you to save the video.
- If you are using Internet Explorer®, click Save; if you are using Firefox®, click Save As. A second dialog box appears, asking you where on your hard drive you would like to save the video.
- Choose the folder where you wish to save the video.
- Click Save.
The video is saved on your computer's hard drive in the location you specified.
1. Control-click the link for the file with the video format and size you want to download. A popup menu appears.
2. If you are using Safari®, choose Download Linked File; if you are using Firefox, choose Save Link As.
3. If you are using Safari, the file will be downloaded via your Download Manager to the download folder specified in your Preferences (using the Preferences command on the Safari menu). If you are using Firefox, choose the folder where you want to save the video and click Save.
The video is saved on your computer's hard drive, in the location you specify if you're using Firefox or in your Downloads folder if you are using Safari.
How do I insert a video into my PowerPoint®presentation?
- On the Insert menu, point to Movies and Sounds, and then click Movie from File.
- Click the video you want to use and then click OK.
Tip: Always put the movie in the same folder as your PowerPoint presentation. If you decide to move the PowerPoint presentation to another computer, copy the movie to the other computer, too. Keeping your movie in the same folder as your presentation ensures it will play properly. Test the movie on the other computer to be certain.
- After you click OK, you're prompted with a message asking how you want the movie to start in the slide show. Choose either Automatically or When Clicked.
