Same comment as Sonia - it cannot be done - primarily because Powerpoint
doesn't actually "play" the video - it generates the slide, then hands it off
to Windows to overlay the video - wiping out whatever is in the video space.
If text (and graphics) on video is critical to your needs, you may want to
check out alternative presentation programs like MediaShout
(http://www.mediashout.com) - it's expensive and designed for use in churches
- but fills some of these "gaps" in Powerpoint that may be critical to some
