Adding a Movie File

Here are ways to add a movie to a spreadsheet:
Drag a movie file from the Finder to a sheet or to a media placeholder.


Click Media in the toolbar, and then click Movies in the Media Browser. Select a file, and


then drag it to a sheet or to a media placeholder.
Choose Insert > Choose, and then navigate to the movie file you want. Select it, and


then click Insert. Drag the movie where you want it on a sheet.

To learn about further adjustments you can make to control movie playback, see
“Adjusting Media Playback Settings” on page 211.

Also note that some media files are protected under copyright law. Some downloaded
music may be played only on the computer where the download occurred. Make
sure the computer you are using has permission to play all the media files included in
your spreadsheet.

When you add media files to your spreadsheet, make sure that they will be available if
you transfer your document to another computer. When saving your document, select
“Copy audio and movies into document” in the Save window after you choose Save or
Save As. (If you don’t see the option, click the disclosure triangle next to the field, and
then click Advanced Options.)
