Description rotwang2011 2011-11-13 05:57:17 UTC
Embedded video on slide appears in correct position on display screen, but high and left on presenter console view.
 This is just a guess but it looks as though the video on the presenter console is positioned relative to the top-left corner of the screen, rather than the top-left corner of the "current slide" sub-window.
