More often than not, PowerPoint users are confronted with these two problems – the failure in embedding an .flv file into a presentation, and the trouble of showing the PowerPoint content on YouTube or MySpace. Let’s go through both the problems one by one.
Part I: Embed a flash video into PowerPoint presentation
Blind to FLV (Flash Video) files, however, MS PowerPoint shakes his natural disapproval of flash video embedding. For that reason, it is impossible to embed a flash video into a presentation unless converted to .mpeg, .avi, .wmv or else video format that PowerPoint can recognize.
To adjust your flash video to an appropriate format for PowerPoint, follow the four methods for four different cases as listed below:
Case 1 Flash video from YouTube or MySpace
If the flash video to insert into you PowerPoint presentation comes from YouTube or MySpace, then do the following:
First, copy the video URL on YouTube or MySpace to a notepad.
Second, go to http://vixy.net , a FREE online video conversion service. Paste the flash video URL into the URL field. Then select AVI, MOV or MP4 as the output format in the Converts to dropdown list.
Click the Start button to start converting. When the conversion completes, download the output video to your local drive.
OK, you can insert the video to a PowerPoint presentation. Simply go to PowerPoint -> Insert-> Movies and Sounds->Movies from File
Case 2 Flash video on your computer
If the selected flash video is one of your local favorites, then go to the site http://media-convert.com/convert/ and follow these steps:
1. Click Browse to pick from your local drive the FLV file to be converted.
2. Select a proper output format like WMV and click OK on the right to start processing.
3. After the conversion, download the output video back to your local computer.
Now it is a piece of cake to embed the converted “flash video” to your PowerPoint presentation. Similar to the insertion in Case 1.
