Maximizing video/picture to window size?

Postby Brucefl56 » Fri May 19, 2017 3:35 am

Hi,
I have been learning to use Impress and putting video's into it. Is there a simple way to maximize
the Video (picture) in the working screen? Though just thought does it maximize to full size when the
when you start the video presentation? It is on another computer.
When I insert the video to make it fill the screen I have to increase the width to approx. 11.25 inches then the height.

I have been so use to hyperlinking in ppt, and actually just learned to insert the video right into the presentation. (slow learner I guess)

Thanks for any help.

When making the video slide try clicking on the video frame. If it shows green handles, pull these to the desired dimension.

I prefer to hyperlink to a video or the media player/video combination with commad line parameters for full screen.

Thanks, I was just trying to find a way to click something that would maximize it to the size of the window. That will probably have to do. Hyperlink works good, though it always opens the video in another window.
