playing video from powerpoint slides as virtual background

I have a webinar panelist using powerpoint slides as a virtual background. She cannot find the control/play button to play a video embedded in her powerpoint presentation. Is that an option or is it shut off when she's using slides as a virtual background? When she is just sharing the slides normally, the control/play button is there and she can play her video.

Good to know---I think putting this on the information page for virtual slides as background would be a good idea since I'm sure others will wonder as well....thanks so much for your answer.
