MS PowerPoint- Play Video with Timer

This requirement came from my one of my MBA college friend.
show the people that they have never seen\ heard before during presentation
You can play video in Excel and PowerPoint as well.
Many option's are available to get it done. If you use youtube video URL then you require internet connectivity during the presentation. If you use windows media player option you have to save the video on particular drive & carry the video during the presentation.

Best way i found is to convert your video in swf format & insert it in PowerPoint or Excel.
