    Hello, I forgot how to do it. When the slide with a video is shown, I want it to wait for me to press a key before it starts to play back the video. Could you please let me know how to do it? Thanks

    Which version of Keynote? In the current version, select the video in the slide, click on the Format button, select the Movie pane and then tick the "Start movie on click" option at the bottom.

    Thank you. It is working. In Keynote '08 ver 4.0.4, I clicked Inspector to open the small control window. Then, chose QuickTime to get that "Start movie on click" option.
