Sometimes when playing an embedded movie file in a PowerPoint presentation, the movie will look fine on the primary monitor but you will only see a black Don Box on a secondary monitor or projector.  I've only seen this myself when there are two movies on the same slide that you are trying to play at the same time.  One of them plays, the other is a black hole.

There are several things that may cause this and a few different ways to address the issue.  Thanks to Scott Cate and the kbAlertz service I noticed this just published Microsoft knowledge base article on the matter that consolidates all of the different fixes in a single place.
