RE: What is the procedure for embedding videos into PowerPoint presentation?
Absolutely, embedding a video into a PowerPoint presentation can certainly enhance your presentation and ensure it's visually engaging. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to do it. **For Online Videos:** 1. **Open Your PowerPoint Presentation**: Go to the slide where you want to embed the video. 2. **Insert Video**: Click on the 'Insert' tab at the top of your PowerPoint window. In the Media section on the right, click on 'Video' and then select 'Online Video'. 3. **Paste Video URL**: If the video is on YouTube, or another platform supported by PowerPoint's 'Online Video' feature, you can paste the URL of the video you want to embed directly into the dialog box that appears. 4. **Insert**: After pasting the URL, click 'Insert' to embed the video into your slide. 5. **Resizing and Positioning**: You can then resize and reposition the video as needed on your slide. **For Offline Videos:** 1. **Open Your PowerPoint Presentation**: Go to the slide where you want to embed the video. 2. **Insert Video**: Click on the 'Insert' tab at the top of your PowerPoint window. In the Media section on the right, click on 'Video' and then select 'Video on My PC' or 'Movie from File' (depending on your PowerPoint version). 3. **Select Video File**: Locate the video file you want to add. Select the file and click 'Insert' to embed the video. 4. **Resizing and Positioning**: Adjust the size and position of the video window as needed. Do note that for offline videos, the video file type must be supported by your version of PowerPoint. MP4 videos encoded with H.264 video (a.k.a. MPEG-4 AVC) and AAC audio is recommended. Also note, when handling offline videos, if you plan to use the presentation on a different computer, make sure to transport the video file along with the presentation file, as the video is not embedded in the PowerPoint file itself but is rather linked. You can ensure seamless portability by using the 'Package Presentation for CD' or 'Package for CD' feature under 'File' -> 'Export', which will include the linked video files as well. Good luck with your presentation! Hope this helps.
