[AG-TECH] DPPT (PowerPoint) audio

Even there's soundcard installed, DPPT will not play an audio file. RPPT, on
the other hand, can playback an embedded audio, but it must be set in the
auto-start or timer-triggered mode (so that RPPT can start the playback by
emulating a mouse-click event). The reason for the restriction in either
DPPT or RPPT is because there's no way to detect or control the
play/stop/pause of an embedded media file via PowerPoint OLE/COM interface.
Please correct me if I'm wrong :)
