Bring New Life to PowerPoint with Engaging Videos

PowerPoint presentation means not simply slide by slide with boring bullet points and charts, you can bring new life to PowerPoint presentation with engaging videos.

Method 1: Insert video to PowerPoint slide

We say a picture is worth of a thousand words, and actually a short video worth more than a thousand pictures. Which do you prefer if you attended two presentations: one with still pictures while another with vivid movies? PowerPoint allows you to directly link a video on web page to PowerPoint slide. Click the hyperlink on the slide and it will jump to the web page for playback.

You need to make sure that the website is not blocked in your presentation spot. It seems that many schools will block YouTube so your YouTube video will not work if you just add the hyperlink to your PowerPoint slide.

To solve this problem, you can download YouTube video to your computer and then insert to PowerPoint. This article tells you how to do that. You should check everything to make sure that the videos worked before you insert them into your presentation. Because you will show the PowerPoint on another computer, make sure they’re all in the same folder as your PowerPoint presentation and that they’re all in a file format that PowerPoint can use (WMV or AVI for movies and all your music is MP3). Besides, you even went online and made sure your computer’s codecs is up to date.

When you’re smiling as you remember how Penny’s presentation flopped last time when her video didn’t play during her big presentation due to unknown reasons. You should think twice this won’t happen to you.

Method 2: Save PowerPoint as video

Transfer PowerPoint to another computer with videos embedded could be risky because you never know why things go wrong even though it works excellently on your own computer. To make it double safe, you can make a copy of your whole PowerPoint presentation as video. How can it possibly go wrong with just one video file?
