Hi all,

I am trying to set up a PowerPoint presentation that has hyperlinks to videos on Stream, but the hyperlinks do not work - they open the Stream home page, but not the specific video.

Same link opens fine from Excel and from Word (and from Outlook).

I saw discussions re embedding missing in PowerPoint, but I do not want to embed, only to create a link that will go to the video's page. I don't even care if it doesn't autoplay.

Should I look for other options, or is there a setting I can add to make the full hyperlink work? (Or should this be a question for the PowerPoint community?)

Thanks,

Ofra
