Music in a PowerPoint presentation

I have created a PowerPoint presentation with a music file linked to it. The music starts automatically when the presentation begins. The presentation is set to loop until stopped. The music plays until the final slide and begins again when the presentation starts it's next loop. How do I keep the music running the entire time the presentation is looping. I have tried the command "loop until stopped." Then the music plays but the presentation will not continue past the first slide.

    If, after music started on slide 1, you could do a loop from slide 2 to the end, this would be a case of problem solved. You used to be able to do that by a hyper-link to a custom show of slide 2 to end. But, this does not work in Office 2010 - the music does not carry over into the custom show. The best solution is NOT to embed the music in the presentation but have it looped separately via Media Player. A "professional" approach would be to time the slides so that the stop and restart of the music seems seamless to the ear. A programmatic way would be to set up a VBA event handler that looked for the "NextSlide" event and if the current slide was the last slide then selected slide 2. However, that is non-trivial and involves setting up a class module and having some way of activating your handler.

    You can also get some information online, if you have the make of your keyboard,

    that's how I sometimes find solutions, I have a keyboard too so I will be checking this

    link as I only listen to the demonstration of the sounds, but not yet connected it to

    the internet. good luck in finding an answer. hope this tip helps.
