When you insert a video in your presentation, you might see that the placed video clip displays a blank or black rectangle on the slide. If your video clip does not show a black rectangle, then of course there is no issue concerned. However, if it does show this black rectangle, your viewers may not find this appealing at all. With PowerPoint 2011’s Poster Frame feature, you can easily overcome this limitation, and change the black rectangle to an image by selecting a frame from the video itself, or even a picture from a different source.

Learn how to add a Poster Frame for your video clips in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.
