This is from Jim Gordon, a Microsoft Office for Mac MVP.

Movies in PowerPoint for Mac are supported by Apple QuickTime. Unfortunately Adobe, the creators of Flash do not make a Flash codec for QuickTime, and no third party app exists that I know of to support Adobe Flash in QuickTime.

This wasn’t always the case. At one time QuickTime had support for early versions of Flash. It’s my impression from Adobe’s site that Adobe didn’t want to provide that support anymore, and stopped providing support to Apple’s QuickTime a few years ago.

Microsoft’s MacBU always looks at important customer concerns, and they act upon them. Those who would like to see support for Flash in PowerPoint should send feedback to Microsoft here.
