Shapes.AddMediaObject2 (PowerPoint)

Replaces deprecated Shapes.AddMediaObject method (PowerPoint). Adds a new media object.

The default value varies depending whether the new media is an audio or video file, and on file size. If both LinkToFile and SaveWithDocument are False, this method returns an error. At least one must be True. Note that the object model allows an object to be both linked and embedded, which is not allowed through the user interface (UI).
