Create a movie / video from PPT slides with embedded videos

Post by jmt356 »

I have a PPT with videos embedded into each slide. Is it possible to convert the PPT into a movie / video that plays each slide as follows:
- The video on each slide is played;
- After the video terminates, the slide transitions to the next slide, at which point the video embedded into the slide automatically plays until the last video of the last slide is played.
Regards,

JMT

When you select File > Export > Video, there are two options:
1) Use Recorded Timings and Narrations. This is only available when you have recorded a slide show.
2) Don't Use Recorded Timings and Narrations.

Embedded videos play automatically with both options when I try it.
But in my very limited experience, it is preferable to record a slide show and use its timings. There is an awkward pause before the first video starts if I select the second option.

Your mileage may vary.

By "embedded videos," are you referring to videos that are recorded in PPT under Slide Show | Record Slide Show or to videos inserted into the PPT through Insert | Video | Insert from this Device.

I have inserted videos into every slide of my PPT presentation through Insert | Video | Insert from this Device. However, when I go to File | Export | Create a Video, Use Recorded Timings and Narrations is grayed out.

I meant videos inserted through Insert | Video | Insert from this Device.'

As I mentioned in my previous reply: Use Recorded Timings and Narrations (...) is only available when you have recorded a slide show.
