    I have been using the following powerpoint plug-in to run video loops with lyrics overlaying the video:

    Will the plug-in work with Parallels or Bootcamp? I need to be able to show the presentation on a projector screen through s-video.

    I know there is other software with the Mac that I could use, but I like the simplcity of Powerpoint and ease of use. Just want to make sure it will work when I make the switch to Mac.

    Thanks again for all the info and help!

    Sure it'll work through Boot Camp or Parallels assuming you have the Windows version of Office installed. :)

    Thanks mad jew...I have read that there were issues with Parrallels when using video codecs. The plug-in uses the video card to push the video inside the Powerpoint program.
    Just want to make sure it will still work and I will still be able to send it all through a projector.

    Thanks again!
