How to Save PowerPoint as Video? A Step-by-Step Guide

(Note: This tutorial on how to save PowerPoint as Video is suitable for PowerPoint 2013 and later versions including  Office 365 )

PowerPoint presentations are a powerful technique to showcase your ideas effectively. But, do you know what’s even more effective than a PowerPoint presentation? A video presentation.

Yes, videos help engage the audience and connect with them on a deeper level. 

Furthermore, if your presentation has too many slides, it’d be hard to move the slides one after the other, especially when the slides are maximized. You can also make your presentation into a video if the presentation does not need a lot of explaining. 

In this article, I will tell you how to effectively save your PowerPoint presentation as video.

You’ll Learn:

Why Convert PowerPoint to a Video?

How to save powerpoint as video, resolution of the video, recorded timings and narrations.

Watch this short video on How to Save PowerPoint as Video

There are a lot of times when converting your PowerPoint presentation to video proves to be useful. 

For example, you might have successfully created an effective presentation and want to share it with your colleagues and teammates. But unfortunately, they don’t have PowerPoint to view the file. In such cases, converting your presentation to a video will be easy for the user to view. Viewing the video doesn’t need PowerPoint or any additional software and can be played on built-in media players or any third-party software. 

When creating a video, you can emphasize certain areas and slides, include effects and transitions. What’s more is that, you can make voice narrations, use laser points to highlight important areas, and note important points on the slide itself. This will especially help you make an impact when you have to present online to several audiences.

You can easily attach the video to an e-mail and upload them to be streamed online. Also, converting Powerpoint presentations to videos is easy. You don’t need any additional software to convert and save Powerpoint as video.

Before you create a video from a presentation, make sure you have created and curated all the slides, transitions, and effects in your presentation. 

  • Navigate to File . Under Export , click on Create a Video .
  • This opens the Create a Video pane on the right side of the window. 
  • Click on Create Video .

Click on Create Video

  • This opens up a Save As dialog box. Rename the file, choose the destination and file format, and click on Save .

Save the Video

Note: There are two video formats when you save Powerpoint as video, namely .mp4 and .wmv formats. The difference between the two formats is that in MPEG-4 (.mp4) Video file format can be easily compressed when you want to reduce the file size, but the quality takes a hit. On the other hand, the Windows Media Video (.wmv) file format retains the same quality even when the file is compressed. 

  • After you click on Save, you can see the video being exported at the bottom of the Powerpoint window. If you want to make some additional changes or you don’t want to export the file, click on Cancel .

The video is exporting

  • Now, navigate to the storage location and play the video.

Customize the Video

You can save PowerPoint as video with the default settings. But, this will make the video look plain. Also, there is no emphasis on slides and each slide will be displayed for a set number of seconds.

There is so much more you can do before you export your presentation as a video. Let us see how.

When exporting the presentation to a video, you can choose the resolution of the video depending on your purpose.

Microsoft Powerpoint offers 4 types of resolution namely: 

  • Ultra HD (3840×2160)
  • Full HD (1920×1080)
  • HD (1280×720)
  • Standard (852×480)

Select the resolution

Choose the resolution depending on your preferences. The greater the resolution, the greater will be the size and the time taken to export. For optimal results, choose the Full HD(1080p) resolution as the quality is better and it works on all devices.  

Did you know, you can narrate and explain each slide when you save Powerpoint as video?

By default, Don’t Use Recorded Timings and Narrations will be selected. This means that, when you save the video,  the slides will just roll over one after the other for a set number of seconds. And, all the slides will have the same time spent on each slide. 

You can change the time spent on each slide by using the text box below. 

Recorded Timings and Narrations

But, this has some drawbacks as there are no emphasis on certain slides. Also, there might be some information that you can deliver to make the audience understand the slides even better. In such cases, you can create narrations or just let the slides do the talking.

By default, the Use Recorded Timings and Narrations option will be grayed out. This means that you haven’t recorded any video or narrations in the presentation.

To enable this option, click on the Record a Video option from the same dropdown to create a narration. 

If you don’t want to record the video at the last moment when you export, you can create your narrations beforehand. 

  • Navigate to Slideshow and click on Record .

Record the slideshow

  • This opens up the Record window. 
  • Click on Record and start your narration as you speak.

The Record window

  • After you have made the recording, click on Close . This saves the recording.
  • To preview the recording, click on Preview Timings and Narrations from the dropdown. 
  • Once you have checked and made corrections, click on Create Video .

Note: When you save a presentation as a video, all the inserted files and macros will not work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why am i not able to save my presentation as video.

You might not be able to save your presentation as a video when some background apps are preventing PowerPoint from exporting the video. Applications such as antivirus or defenders might prevent you from recording and saving your presentation.

How to save recording and narration without audio or video?

When you click on Record, disable the microphone and video camera in the bottom right of the window. This way, you can use the laser pointer to point to the slide, and use pens to make any cues on the slides. You can also add notes to the recording without having to speak or show your face.

Can we increase the time spent on slides for a particular slide?

No. You cannot increase the time spent on one particular slide. However, you can record a video, mute the audio and video, and then show emphasis on particular slides.

Closing Thoughts

If you are looking to engage the audience with presentations, videos are an excellent way to achieve that.

In this article, we saw how to save PowerPoint as video in an easy way. There are two ways you can do that: You can either export the slides into a video with a set time on each slide. Or, create narration and add necessary cues to add additional leverage to your videos. You can choose the method depending on your preference and purpose.

How to Convert PowerPoint to Video (Step-by-Step)

  • October 22, 2019

In this article you’ll learn how to convert PowerPoint to video, and the different options you have.

PowerPoint to video

While most people know how to use PowerPoint to present their products and services live, few people know how to turn a PowerPoint into a video that runs on its own.

And while that might sound complicated, it’s in fact pretty easy, as you will see below.

There are two different ways to turn your PowerPoint presentations into video, the first of which gives you the most options, as discussed below.

But before you start the conversion process, here are some thoughts about why you should consider doing it in the first place.

Why Convert PowerPoint to Video?

It keeps your presentation the way it was intended.

Exporting your presentation as a video keeps all elements safely locked in place. That way you can email it to your colleagues or clients without worrying that something will shift, or that timings be messed up.

Video is more accessible and shareable

While most people have PowerPoint on their computer, we shouldn’t assume that they do. Convert your PowerPoint to video and the receiver can open it even if they don’t have a Microsoft subscription. They will have to have a media player though!

It’s also easier to view videos on a mobile device, so busy clients can check out your presentation while on the move.

Furthermore, it’s also easier to share videos on multiple platforms. They can be posted to YouTube, on your company blog, and on social media and video sharing networks.

People love videos!

With more than 75 million people watching online videos every day across the United States alone, you know you’re onto a good thing. According to marketing gurus, just mentioning the word ‘video’ in the subject line of an email increases the click-through rate by 19%. 

We human beings naturally love a good story because it conveys a message on an emotional level; and videos are very effective for storytelling, especially in contrast to written text or even images.

Since people’s decision-making process is often based on emotions, turning your presentation into a video can be very convincing.

What is an MP4?

MP4 is short for MPEG-4 Video, and is a universal video format that plays on any device.

When converting PowerPoint to video, you can choose between the  MPEG-4   Video  ​ ​​ file format (MP4) or the  Windows Media Video  file format (WMV), as discussed below.

The two main advantages of MP4 for your videos are:

  • It’s a pre-compressed and compact file type format (so it’s small)
  • It plays on just about any device

When converting PowerPoint to video, I highly recommend using the MP4 format unless you have a specific reason not to.

To learn more of the advantages of the MP4 format, see this Quora thread  here .

Option #1. Convert PowerPoint to video

To convert PowerPoint to video, click the File tab, Export, Create a Video, choose your options and click Create Video

To convert your PowerPoint presentation into a video, simply:

  • Click the  File  tab
  • Select  Export
  • ​​ Select  Create Video ​​
  • Choose your  Video Quality  ​ and  Recorded Timings and Narrations  (see details below)
  • Click  Create Video

Choose where to save the video on your computer and click  Save .

Navigate to where you want to save your video on your computer and click Save

As a result, your PowerPoint presentation is converted into video, based on the  Recorded Timings and Narrations  you selected, or the preset seconds per slide you set (all discussed below).

You can even add music and loop it throughout your video if you want to. To learn how to add music to PowerPoint,  read our guide here .

Video quality

Video quality determines not only the quality of your video output, but also how large the video file will be, as you can see in the image below.

how to save powerpoint presentation video

For most situations, the  Full HD (1080p)  is a great choice.

That said, if you are showing your video on a large overhead projector and size isn’t an issue, you can improve the quality of your video by using the  Ultra HD (4K)  format.

Below you can see the different video quality options you have in the  Create a Video  dialog box.

Video quality options include Ultra HD, Full HD (1080p), HD (720p) and Standard (480p)

If file size is an issue or you are just showing your video on a smaller laptop screen, you can save a lot of space with the  HD (720p)  or  HD (480p)  formats.

HD (720p)  is supported on most websites and video platforms such as YouTube and Facebook. The  HD (480p )  option is the best option for mobile devices.

Setting recorded timings and narrations

Recorded Timings and Narrations options for converting PowerPoint to video

Recorded Timings and Narrations are important when converting PowerPoint to video as they not only dictate how long your video will be, but determine when things happen in your presentation.

There are a variety of ways you can set yourRecorded Timings or Narrations (all detailed below), but in short, your options are:

  • Automatically set how many seconds you want per slide
  • Set your own  Rehearsal Timings  (no audio or video) by clicking through your presentation
  • Narrate your PowerPoint with voice and/or video, which automatically sets the slide timings for you

If you use the  Record Slide Show  dialog box to narrate your entire presentation, you can simply use the  Save As  dialog box (discussed next) to save your PowerPoint as a video, as your narrations will take care of everything in your video.

To learn everything you need to know about narrating a PowerPoint presentation,  read our guide here .

Properly using PowerPoint animations

If you have animated sequences in your presentation and are going to use a pre-set number of seconds per slide, I recommend setting all your animations to  After Previous.

To change when a PowerPoint animation plays, select the animation, then open the Start options in the Animations tab

To set an animation to trigger automatically as your slide changes, simply:

  • Select  your animated object
  • Open the  Animations  tab
  • Open the  Start  drop down
  • Select  After Previous

This ensures that your animations will trigger after the previous action, whether that is an animation or advancing to the next slide.

If you leave your animations set to  On Click , they can add a delay of as much as 10 seconds to your video. This is especially if you are using the second conversion method (see the section below here on saving PowerPoint as a video).

Option #2. Save PowerPoint as Video

The fastest way to convert your PowerPoint presentations into a video format, is to use the  Save As dialog box.

This works best when you have narrated your PowerPoint presentation using the  Record Slide Show  dialog box, and just want the  Full HD (1080p)  quality for your video.

The Record Slide Show command in the Slide Show tab

​That’s because all of your slide timings, actions and animated sequences are saved within your narration, so all PowerPoint then has to do is save itself as a video using the default settings.

If you are not narrating your presentation, then I recommend using the first method discussed above.

To save powerpoint as a video, hit Control plus shift plus S, navigate to where you want to save the video and change the save as type to MPEG-4 and click save

To save your presentation as a video from inside PowerPoint, simply:

  • Hit  F12  or  Ctrl + Shift + S  to open the Save As dialog box
  • Choose a location to save your video
  • Change the file type to either  MPEG-4 Video  (recommended) or  Windows Media Video
  • Click  Save

Depending on the size of your presentation, it might take a minute or two to save your presentation as a video, so just hang tight.

When it is finished, your PowerPoint will be saved as a video in the  Full HD (1080p)  format. If you want a different video quality, you will need to use the  Create a Video  dialog box (see the first method discussed above).

After you save your presentation as a video, you can then embed it in other presentation if you want to. To learn how to embed a video in PowerPoint,  read our guide here .

Note:  I highly recommend saving your presentation in the  MPEG-4 (MP4)  file format as it is more universally accepted than the  Windows Media Video (WMV)  file format.

How to Record and Set Timings for Your Video

When converting PowerPoint to video, the timings not only determine the length of your video, they also determine the timing in which your animated sequences are triggered.

If you have a lot of animated sequences in your presentation, I don’t recommend using a set number of seconds per slide.

That’s because you can’t control the lag between the animated sequences and your content. Instead, I recommend using the  Rehearse Timings  command.

Here are the 4 different ways you can set and adjust slide timings for your presentation, from easiest to slowest.

1. Set a default number of seconds per slide

In the export PowerPoint as a video dialog box, set how many seconds you want on each slide in your video

To use a standard number of seconds per slide for your slide timings, simply:

  • Navigate to the  File  tab
  • Click  Export
  • Select  Create Video
  • Set the number of seconds

The more seconds you set per slide, the longer your video will be in total.

2. Set transition timings to advance your slides

PowerPoint transitions are another great way to not only make flipping between your slides less abrupt, but also to automatically advance your slides.

Using the  Transitions  tab, you can both set a default number of seconds for all of your slides, as well as adjust the time spent on individual slides.

From the transitions tab, select fade, set a number of seconds per slide and select Apply to All

For example, to set a Fade transition and slide timings of 3 seconds per slide, simply:

  • Navigate to the  Transitions  tab
  • Click the  Fade  transition
  • Under the  Effect Options , choose  Through Black
  • Deselect  On Mouse Click
  • For  After , input  3 seconds  (and make sure there is a check mark ​next to  After )
  • Click  Apply to All

As a result, all the slides in your presentation will now have a Fade transition and will automatically advance after 3 seconds.

You can also adjust the duration of the transitions between your slides if you want to get specific, but I think the default is usually fine.

3. Use the Rehearse Timings command

If you want to control the flow of your timings by manually clicking through your presentation, you can use the  Rehearse Timings  command.

how to save powerpoint presentation video

To set your slide timings with the  Rehearse Timings  command, simply:

  • Navigate to the  Slide Show  tab
  • Click the  Rehearse Timings  command
  • Use the  Rehearse Timings  dialog box to click through your presentation
  • When you are finished, click  Yes  to save the slide timings

Here is a quick run through of the commands on the  Rehearse Timings  dialog box.

Rehearse timings dialog box options for recording slide timings for your video

Clicking  Repeat  starts the rehearsal timing over for the current slide you are on. That means you can restart the timing without having to start the presentation over from scratch.

4. Use the Record Slide Show command

The  Record Slide Show  command is the NEWEST and best way to add audio and video narrations to your presentations.

The advantage of using this tool to narrate your PowerPoint presentation, is that all of your slide timings, animations and actions are recorded for each slide.

That means you can simply use the  Save As  dialog box to quickly convert your narrated PowerPoint into a video.

Open the Slide Show tab, open the Record Slide Show drop down, select Record from beginning

To use the  Record Slide Show  command to narrate your presentation from the beginning, simply:

  • Navigate to  Slide Show  tab
  • Open the  Record Slide Show  drop down
  • Select  Record from Beginning

To learn how to use the  Record Slide Show  command to narrate your PowerPoint (and all the options you have), read our guide here.

Note:  If you just click the  Record Slide Show  button (instead of opening the drop down), you will begin recording your narration from your current slide.

So that’s how to turn PowerPoint into a video, either by exporting your video using the  Create a Video  command, or by saving your PowerPoint presentation as a video using the  Save As  dialog box.

If you narrate you presentation using the  Record Slide Show  command, the  Save As  dialog box is the fastest way to turn your presentation into a video.

And while PowerPoint gives you two different video file types to choose from, I recommend using the universal MP4 video file format. That’s because it ensures that your video will play on any device (computer, tablet, or phone) that people may have.

How to Convert PowerPoint to Video

Let your presentation speak for itself

how to save powerpoint presentation video

What to Know

  • Windows: Select File > Export > Create a Video . Choose video quality, timings/narrations, seconds per slide > Create Video . Select file type.
  • Mac: Select File > Export . Choose file format, video quality, timings/narrations, and seconds per slide, then choose Export .

PowerPoint decks are great tools for showcasing and presenting a message, product, or data visualization, as viewers are more likely to digest content when it's in video format. Here's how to turn a PowerPoint into a video using PowerPoint for Microsoft 365, PowerPoint 2019, PowerPoint 2016, PowerPoint 2013, PowerPoint 2010, and PowerPoint for Mac.

How to Save PowerPoint as Video on Windows

After you create a presentation, convert your slides into attention-grabbing videos. The steps below show how to turn a PowerPoint file into a video. The result is a file that incorporates animation, narration, and other custom content included in the original PPT or PPTX file.

Follow these instructions to make a video from a PPT or PPTX file in PowerPoint on Windows operating systems:

Launch PowerPoint and open the presentation file you want to turn into a video. If that file is open, ensure that the latest version is saved by selecting File > Save or by selecting Save on the Quick Access Toolbar.

Select File > Export .

If you use PowerPoint 2010, select Save & Send .

Select Create a Video .

Choose the video quality you want to use for your video slideshow. A high-quality screen resolution results in a larger file size. A low-quality output results in a smaller file.

Specify whether or not to include recorded timings and narrations in the video. If the presentation contains timings or narrations, select Record Timings and Narrations . These narrations can include a thumbnail image of yourself, recorded on your webcam.

To specify the amount of time that each slide displays, enter the time in the Seconds spent on each slide text box.

After you make your choices, select Create Video .

In the Save As dialog box, choose a location to save your new video file and enter a filename.

Select the Save as type drop-down arrow and choose either MPEG-4 Video ( MP4 ) or Windows Media Video ( WMV ). Select Save to start the video creation process.

The progress of your video creation displays in the status bar. This may take a few minutes or up to several hours to complete, depending on the size and complexity of the video being created.

How to Save PowerPoint as Video on macOS

Follow these instructions to make a video from a PPT or PPTX file in PowerPoint for macOS.

This feature is available to Microsoft 365 subscribers who have the latest desktop version of PowerPoint.

Launch PowerPoint and open the presentation file that you want to turn into a video. If that file is open, ensure that the latest version is saved by selecting File > Save or by selecting Save from the Quick Access Toolbar.

A pop-out window appears that contains multiple options. In the File Format drop-down menu, select either MP4 or MOV .

Choose a video quality option. Those with the highest quality and screen resolutions (for example, Presentation Quality ) result in larger file sizes. A low-quality output creates a smaller file. This quality selection also dictates the video's width and height, shown below the Quality menu.

Choose whether or not to include recorded timings and narrations in the video. If available, select the Use Recorded Timings and Narrations check box to enable this content in your video.

To increase or decrease the timing for the slides, select the up or down arrow next to Seconds spent on each slide without a set timing . By default, a PowerPoint video spends five seconds on a slide before transitioning to the next slide.

Select Export .

How To Convert a PowerPoint Presentation to a HD Video in 3 Steps

There are many reasons why you may consider converting a PowerPoint presentation to a High-Definition video ; for example if you want to share a presentation online through YouTube or Vimeo, create a self-running presentation or save the slide show video to a DVD.

How to Convert a PowerPoint Presentation to a HD Video

In this article we will guide you on how to convert a PowerPoint presentations to a High Definition video (as an MP4 video file,Windows Media Video .wmv file or QuickTime Video File .mov) using Microsoft PowerPoint.

PowerPoint lets you save presentations as videos directly from the File -> Save As dialog box; however if you need to choose the output video quality while saving the presentation then it is recommended to use the File -> Export -> Create a Video option.

High Definition (HD) or high-quality presentation uses a higher resolution (1280×720 or 1920×1080) to save the video information. It can improve the overall experience while watching a presentation online or playing a PowerPoint slideshow in a kiosk. The main drawback is that the presentation video file size will be bigger and more bandwidth may be required.

You can use the converted video file to create a video slideshow for display at an event or edit the content of the video to generate a video presentation.

Create Presentations and Tutorials

PowerPoint enables users to export their videos with voice-over narration and animations. This can help create extensive presentations for an audience

Use Professional Editing Software to Create Engaging Videos

Adding a voice-over, additional graphics, and some footage can help create a professional-looking presentation by using a video editing application. Similar to how you use Instagram tools to convert images into a stunning video, some famous video editing apps that can help you make the most out of your converted PowerPoint file to a video format include Adobe Premiere Pro, Camtasia Studio, iMovie, Final Cut Pro, etc. If you are a Windows user, you can look into alternatives to Final Cut Pro like Lightworks, Movavi Video Editor, and Shotcut.

Create a Video Instead of Using PowerPoint

You can convert PowerPoint to video by simply letting your slides play out, making the presentation easy to play for end users without the need to have PowerPoint installed. This approach can also be helpful if you intend to present your slides using a video player instead of PowerPoint, as the latter might not be available everywhere, whereas video players often come with all types of desktop and mobile operating systems.

Upload a Video Online

Many presenters also like to upload their presentations online for an audience. A teacher might be interested in making his/her presentation available for students, or an industry expert might wish to share a concept with others in the industry by uploading a video to a YouTube channel. Either way, converting your PowerPoint to a video can help make the content easily shareable via video streaming platforms like YouTube and Vimeo. Such a video can also be shared privately via file-sharing apps like Box, OneDrive, Google Drive, etc.

How To Convert PowerPoint to Video (Windows)

Step 1 – go to file -> export.

The first step to save a PowerPoint presentation as a HD video go to File -> Export and then click Create a Video button.

Step 2 – Choose Video Resolution

Now, select a resolution to export your video. Other than the Standard (825×480) resolution, the high-definition resolution options include HD (Medium 1280×720), Full HD (Large 1920×1080), or Ultra HD 4K (Largest file size 1920×1080). If you are using an older version of PowerPoint, you might have limited options to select between HD resolutions, since versions older than PowerPoint 2013 only supported HD videos (1280×720).

Choose Video Resolution in your PowerPoint Video Presentation

Save Narrations, Laser Pointer Gestures & Recorded Timings (Optional)

Aside from saving the presentation as an HD video, you can also save a video file that incorporates all the recorded timings during a rehearsal, narrations, and even laser pointer gestures.

In case you have recorded narrations for your slides, you can use them or select Record a Video option to instantly start narrating your slides. The Preview Timings and Narrations option in the same drop-down menu does what it says, it enables you to check and ensure that your narrations are correctly timed with your slides, so you can make necessary edits before finalizing your video.

Use Recorded Timings and Narrations in your Video Presentation

Select Slide Duration (Optional)

Choose the default time spent on each slide (in seconds) and whether to save the narrations, timings, and gestures. By default, 5.00 seconds are spent on each slide unless you have a different timing recorded for the presentation slideshow.

Presentations with a lot of slides may require a longer wait time.

How to Convert PowerPoint to Video (Mac)

If you’re wondering how to make a PowerPoint into a video on Mac, the steps are quite similar to how you would export PowerPoint to video on a PC, with a few minor differences.

Step 1 – Go to File > Export

To convert PowerPoint to video on Mac, go to File -> Export.

Step 2 – Choose Video Format

If you have been wondering how to save PowerPoint as MP4 on Mac, this is the step where you can pick a video file format to save your presentation as a video, including MP4 and MOV.

The difference between the PC and Mac during this step is the difference in the availability of video conversion options. The PC version, along with MP4, allows saving a video in the Windows Media Video (WMV) format, unlike Mac, which offers QuickTime video format (MOV) instead.

Step 3 – Select Video Resolution and Create Video

The new version of PowerPoint for Mac allows saving a presentation in HD (Medium 1280×720), Full HD (1920×1080), or Ultra HD 4K (1920×1080) format. The higher the resolution, the higher the file format, so make sure you have enough disk space to save a very heavy file, especially if you opt for Ultra HD 4K resolution.

To save narrations, recorded timings, and laser point gestures, select the Use Recorded Timings and Narrations option.

To precisely time how long each slide is presented in the video, select the time duration. The default duration is 5.00 seconds, unless you have specified time for each slide separately in the presentation.

Select Export to create your video. Depending on the resolution you have selected, it might take several minutes before the video is converted. Higher resolutions take more time to conversion.

Saving videos from PowerPoint can help you at the time you need to share a presentation slideshow online (for example, uploading it via YouTube or Vimeo, or any other online video platform ), but you can also use this technique to prepare a PowerPoint presentation for a kiosk, make interactive PowerPoint presentations or create a self-running presentation. PowerPoint presentations saved as videos can also be easily run from mobile devices without the need for PowerPoint to be installed on the device. If you wish to save your PowerPoint to video in a format easily accessible, you can opt for PowerPoint save as MP4 instead of using WMV or MOV file formats that are not supported by all types of video players.

Can’t believe no one has commended you for this helpful tutorial! We want to mount several TVs in the lobby and exam rooms of our veterinary hospital to run informational presentations for our clients about pet care, our services, and helpful products. Recording a PowerPoint as a video and then putting it on a USB thumb drive to connect to the TV seems like it will be an effective, inexpensive way to get that accomplished. Thank you so much!

I second the above comment. Thank You

how to present a power point presentation on a smart tv..and having it loop over to continuous display..keep running.

This was very helpful. I had no clue that this could be done. I dedicated a PC to running the Power Point presentation for our lobby. Having it run on the TV via USB will free up that resource for us.

I haven’t dug into it yet, but is there a way to make it loop?

I keep getting this audio data not supported. Is there anyway to remove this?

How To Save A PowerPoint As A Video: 8 Easy Steps

  • February 15, 2023
  • No Comments

PowerPoint presentations have become a staple of modern business, and with good reason: they’re fast, easy to use, and virtually anyone can put together one.

That said, the world has never been more plugged-in than it is today; that means your presenters need to be plugged-in too. To save a PowerPoint as a video instead of just reading from notes will not only help your presentation feel more dynamic but also make it easier for your audience to understand what you’re trying to say.

In this blog post we’ll cover everything you need to know about saving a PowerPoint as a video, from how to choose the right software and format for your slide deck to the best tips for making your video slides stick in viewers’ minds long after they leave your desk.

How to Save a PowerPoint Presentation As A Video

When it comes to saving presentations as videos , you have a few different options. Depending on what kind of content you’re creating, you may have a preference for one over the others. Before we dive into the specifics of each, let’s take a quick look at the pros and cons of each format so you can make an informed decision. – Slides as a video: these are either a slideshow or a series of short clips connected together with an introduction, a transitional shot, and an exit shot like any standard PowerPoint.

– Slides combined with narration as a video: in this format, you either read your slides and narrate them as you would for a normal PowerPoint presentation, or you record a separate voice-over track. – Slides combined with music and animation as a video: in this format, you either read your slides and narrate them as you would for a normal PowerPoint presentation, or you record a separate voice-over track. This is a bit different than the next two formats, as it combines PowerPoint with the addition of music and graphics.

Software for saving a PowerPoint as a video

Ok, let’s talk about the software. You may be able to create videos in Microsoft Office, or you may need a dedicated video editing software like Adobe Premiere or Apple Final Cut Pro X. In either case, there are a few things you should look for when choosing a software.

– How stable is the software and how reliable is it? No matter how good your video editing skills are, if a piece of software crashes mid-creation, you’ll end up with a useless video. – What format support does the software allow you to use? Let’s say you’re looking to create a PowerPoint-to-Video presentation. Then, the video editing software you choose should have support for exporting to the MP4 format, so you can avoid using someone else’s proprietary format.

– How easy is it to learn and use? If you’re looking to save a PowerPoint presentation as a video, you should know that different software work differently. Some may be easier to understand or may even come with tutorials to help you get started.

Final Cut Pro X for pros and Cons of Using It

Easily one of the best video editing software options out there, Final Cut Pro X comes with phenomenal pros and a few cons. The pros of using it are that it’s incredibly easy to use, supports virtually every video format you could want, and is incredibly reliable.

The cons of using FCX are that it is only available on Mac computers, and it’s only $299. That being said, it’s a great option for businesses that need a powerful video editing tool, but don’t want to break the bank getting it.

How to Create Your Video Slides

Now that you have the software you need, you’ll need to learn how to use it. If you’re using a dedicated video editing software like Final Cut Pro X, it will likely come with a tutorial to help you get started. If not, don’t worry; it’s incredibly easy to learn. Here are a few tips to get you started. – Make sure your microphone(s) work properly before you start recording.

This should be obvious, but we’ve seen countless times where users forget to test their microphones before starting a project. – Choose a good location for your recording. Even though you can record in almost any location, room tone is always better than the hallway or bathroom. – Speak clearly and slowly.

These two things will keep you from making mistakes that could ruin your video. – Add some flare to your video. This could mean adding a few filters to your footage, sprinkling your video with some text, or adding some music. – When you’re finished recording, make sure to export your video as an MP4 file. This is the file type your video editing software will expect.

How to Save a PowerPoint as A Video From Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office is one of the most popular office suites in the world, and one of its most popular features is the ability to create and save PowerPoint presentations. If your presentation is already saved in the ppt or pps file format, you can easily convert it to a video, and the best part is that it takes just a few seconds.

You can also save your presentation as a video directly from the PowerPoint application, but this is only possible on Mac computers. If you are using a different operating system, you will need to use Microsoft Office to convert the ppt file to a video.

What is saving a PowerPoint as a video?

This is the question that you should be asking yourself before you start creating your video presentation. Before you can save a PowerPoint as a video, you need to know what format you’re exporting it in. There are multiple formats you can export your PowerPoint as a video in, and the best one for you depends on what kind of video you want to create.

If you’re looking to create an MP4-to-video presentation, there are two formats you should keep in mind. The first and most common is the MP4 format. This is a relatively new format that’s quickly gaining popularity and is supported by nearly all modern devices. The other format you need to keep in mind is the MOV file. This format is older but still supported and is more commonly used in mobile devices.

Tips for making your PowerPoint video stick

There are a few key things you can do to make your PowerPoint video as memorable as possible. These include making sure to keep your presentation interesting and engaging, that your transitions are smooth and don’t cause any stutters or jumps, and that your visuals are clear, sharp, and easy to understand.

When it comes to keeping your presentation interesting, you want to make sure to avoid falling into one of the most common traps that PowerPoint presenters fall into: talking too much.

While you want to make sure you cover the content you want to cover, too much information is never a good thing, and that’s why you want to make sure you keep your presentation interesting. When it comes to keeping your presentation engaging, you want to avoid talking above your audience’s head. This means you should make sure you’re speaking at a level that your audience can understand.

PowerPoint presentations have been a staple of business for decades, and there’s no reason to change that now. If you want to make your next PowerPoint presentation a video, though, you’ll want to make sure you save a PowerPoint as a video. These are the best tips to help you make that happen.

Videos can make presentations even more interesting or exciting. If you're looking to add a video to your Microsoft PowerPoint presentation, it's easy to do so. We'll show you how.

In PowerPoint, you can either embed a video or link to a video from your presentation. If you embed a video, your video becomes part of the presentation, which increases the overall size of the presentation file.

In this guide, we'll focus on embedding a video in your presentation so you don't have to worry about sending separate files. And, if you're looking to add a YouTube video to your presentation , there's a way to do that, too.

Embracing the Power of PowerPoint for Video Editing

PowerPoint isn’t just for slides and bullet points—it’s an unexpectedly powerful tool for video editing as well. While it may not replace professional video editing software, learning how to edit PowerPoint videos can offer a range of features that enable users to modify videos for presentations directly within the program. This capability simplifies the process of enhancing your narrative with visual and audio cues, ensuring that your message is both received and remembered by your audience. With PowerPoint, you have the means to resize, trim, add bookmarks, and even set fade durations without ever having to leave your presentation.

Always make sure you have the necessary Office updates installed for proper video insertion and playback. If the video does not insert correctly or fails to play, these updates might be a requirement you’re missing.

Initial Steps for Trimming and Sectioning Videos

Before diving into advanced editing, mastering the initial steps of trimming and sectioning your video is crucial. These simple edits can significantly enhance the effectiveness of your presentation by focusing your audience’s attention on the most relevant sections of your video content. Here’s how to get started:

STEP 1: Select and insert the video onto your PowerPoint slide as outlined in the previous section.

STEP 2: To begin trimming your video, select the video on the slide. This enables the “Video Tools” section on the toolbar ribbon, showing you two tabs: “Format” and “Playback.”

Edit PowerPoint Videos

STEP 6: You can then drag the green marker to trim the beginning of the clip and the red marker to trim the end of the clip. Use the “Next Frame” and “Previous Frame” buttons to fine-tune your selection to the exact frame.

Once you’re satisfied with your trimmed video length, select “OK” to commit the changes.

By following these initial steps, you ensure that only the most significant parts of the video are presented, keeping your audience focused and engaged. These editing capabilities within PowerPoint can drastically reduce the need for external video editing tools for presentation purposes.

Applying Video Effects:

STEP 1: To add a visual effect, select the video and go to the “Video Format” tab in the “Video Tools” section.

Technical Insights for Smooth Playback

Ensuring optimal video quality in your slides.

To ensure that the videos in your PowerPoint slides are of optimal quality and deliver the best possible experience to your audience, follow these guidelines:

  • Choose the Right Resolution : Use videos that match or slightly exceed the resolution of the display you will be presenting on. However, be wary of file size and performance impacts, especially when using resolutions higher than 1080p on less capable hardware.
  • Maintain Aspect Ratio : PowerPoint slides typically have a 16:9 aspect ratio for widescreen displays. Ensure that your videos adhere to this ratio to prevent them from stretching or having black bars on the sides.
  • Understand Compression : PowerPoint may compress videos upon saving the presentation, which can reduce video quality. To mitigate this, consider optimizing videos outside of PowerPoint first and adjust the compression settings within PowerPoint to ensure the highest possible quality.
  • Embed Rather Than Link : Whenever possible, embed the video directly into the slide rather than linking it. This prevents issues with lost files or broken links, especially when transferring the presentation between computers.
  • Avoid Overloading with Videos : A presentation cluttered with too many video files can become sluggish and may buffer during playback. Be judicious in your use of video materials, and consider the necessity of each clip.
  • Optimize for Performance : Before finalizing your presentation, test the videos on the intended hardware. If you encounter any lags or stuttering, you may need to reduce the video’s quality for smoother playback.
  • Utilize PowerPoint’s Video Tools : Use the built-in video editing tools to crop, trim, or compress your videos directly within PowerPoint to ensure they are well-suited for your presentation context.
  • Prefer Common Formats : Stick to widely supported video formats such as MP4 with H.264 video and AAC audio codecs to avoid compatibility problems across different devices and PowerPoint versions.
  • Ensure Audio Quality : Video isn’t just about the picture; high-quality audio is equally important. Check that the sound is clear, at the right volume, and free from background noise or distortion.
  • Check the Playback Settings : Set up your videos to play the way you want—automatically or when clicked. Verify thesesettings under the “Video Tools Playback” tab to avoid any awkward fumbling during the actual presentation.
  • Use High-Quality Source Material : Always start with the highest quality video that is practical for your purposes. It’s easier to compress a high-quality source down than to try and improve the quality of an already poor source.
  • Prepare for Different Scenarios : Be ready for various presentation environments. If presenting online or through video conferencing tools, understand that you may need to adapt your video quality to bandwidth limitations.
  • Test on Different Screens : If possible, test your presentation on screens of different sizes and resolutions to ensure that the video maintains quality across various displays.

By following these steps to ensure optimal video quality in your PowerPoint slides, you’ll be better prepared to deliver a professional and engaging presentation that resonates with your audience.

Troubleshooting Common Issues When Embedding Videos

Extending beyond basic edits.

Planning your Content:

  • Define Your Objectives : Understand the purpose behind incorporating video—be it to explain complex topics, demonstrate procedures, or stir emotional responses.
  • Storyboard Your Video : Lay out a storyboard that maps the progression of your video content alongside your slides. This ensures coherence and helps maintain viewers’ engagement.

Designing Visually Engaging Slides:

  • Use High-Quality Visuals : Incorporate high-definition images or animations that complement your video content and provide a visual break from text-heavy slides.
  • Maintain Consistency : Keep a consistent theme, font, and color palette across slides to provide a professional look and reinforce brand identity.
  • Clear Typography : Choose fonts and sizes that are easy to read even on smaller screens, ensuring accessibility for all viewers.

Engaging Viewers:

  • Tell a Story : Use videos to tell stories or present case studies. This narrative technique can enhance retention and make learning points clearer.
  • Use Annotations : PowerPoint allows you to annotate over videos during a presentation, take advantage of this by adding on-the-fly commentary or highlighting critical elements within the video.
  • Provide Context : Before playing a video, introduce the segment to your audience. Give them an idea of what to look for and why the video is important to the presentation.
  • Reflective Pauses : After the video, allow time for reflection or discussion. You can ask questions related to the video content to further engage the viewers and deepen their understanding.

Exporting and Sharing Presentations:

  • Convert to Video : You can turn your entire PowerPoint presentation, including embedded videos, into a video file. This is particularly useful for eLearning, allowing learners to view the material at their own pace.
  • Optimize for Online Platforms : If you plan to share your presentation online, remember to optimize it for the specific platform, whether it’s for a webinar, a learning management system, or social media.

By applying these strategies to your visual presentations and eLearning content, you can create an immersive and impactful learning experience that leverages the power of video within PowerPoint.

Exporting Your Presentation as a Video File

Exporting your PowerPoint presentation as a video file is a valuable technique for sharing your work across various platforms. This process allows you to create a stand-alone video version of your presentation, complete with all the incorporated media and recorded timings. Here’s how to do it:

Edit PowerPoint Videos

STEP 3: Timing and Narration Settings : In the second drop-down box under “Create a Video”, select whether you want to use recorded timings and narrations or not. If you haven’t recorded any, choose “Don’t Use Recorded Timings and Narrations”, and PowerPoint will default to a set number of seconds on each slide. You can modify this time in the “Seconds to spend on each slide” box.

Edit PowerPoint Videos

STEP 6: Select the File Format : In the “Save as type” dropdown, choose either “MPEG-4 Video” or “Windows Media Video”. These formats are broadly compatible across different video players and devices.

STEP 7: Monitor the Export Process : Depending on the complexity of your presentation and the length of your video, the creation process might take some time. You can track progress at the bottom of the PowerPoint window.

STEP 8: Test Your Video : Once the video is created, play it through to make sure everything looks and sounds as it should.

  • Exporting long videos can be time-consuming; consider setting the video to be created overnight or at a time when it won’t interrupt your workflow.
  • For presentations with a lot of animations or high-resolution media, make sure to have a powerful enough computer to handle the process.
  • If the video is intended for online platforms, check if there are specific video specifications recommended by the platform (such as dimensions, file size limits, etc.) and adjust your settings accordingly.

With those steps, you have a video file of your PowerPoint presentation that can be easily shared, uploaded, or played independently of the PowerPoint software, broadening the accessibility of your content.

FAQ: Mastering Video in PowerPoint

What are the key benefits of embedding videos in powerpoint.

Embedding videos directly into PowerPoint slides offers several distinct advantages that can enhance the overall impact and effectiveness of your presentations:

  • Seamless Integration : Embedded videos play directly within the PowerPoint interface, providing a smooth and professional experience, without leaving the presentation or relying on external media players.
  • Reliability : Since the video file becomes part of the PowerPoint file, you’re not dependent on internet connections for online video streaming, thus avoiding potential buffering or loading issues.
  • Ease of Control : You can directly control video playback during your presentation, with options to pause, rewind, or skip to specific sections using PowerPoint’s built-in video tools.
  • Consistent Format : Embedding ensures videos appear as intended across different devices and software versions because the videos are part of the PowerPoint file itself.
  • Increased Engagement : Videos can capture attention and convey information in a dynamic way, breaking up the monotony of text-heavy slides and engaging viewers on multiple sensory levels.
  • Customization Options : PowerPoint allows you to trim videos, add effects, adjust brightness and contrast, or even bookmark specific playback points for easy access.
  • Simplified Sharing : When sharing the presentation, there’s no need to worry about separately importing video files, as everything is self-contained within the PowerPoint slide deck.
  • Privacy and Security : Embedding keeps videos private, as they don’t need to be hosted on a public platform like YouTube, where they might be visible to unintended audiences.
  • Professional Quality : The ability to integrate high-quality video content directly into a presentation can add to the professionalism and perceived value of your work.

These benefits substantiate the practice of embedding videos in PowerPoint as a preferred method for incorporating multimedia content into professional presentations.

Can I Use Videos from Sources Other than YouTube in My Presentation?

Yes, you can use videos from sources other than YouTube in your PowerPoint presentations. While YouTube is a significant and widely used source for video content, other video hosting platforms like Vimeo , Dailymotion , Wistia , and Microsoft Stream provide similar functionalities for video embedding. Here are some points to consider when using videos from these alternatives:

  • Vimeo : Known for its high-quality video support, Vimeo is a popular choice for creative professionals. You can embed videos from Vimeo by using the embed code provided by the platform.
  • Dailymotion : Offers a variety of content similar to YouTube and provides embedding options that can be utilized in PowerPoint presentations.
  • Wistia : Geared more towards business users, Wistia offers robust video hosting and detailed analytics which can be particularly useful for marketing and eLearning purposes.
  • Microsoft Stream : If you have a Microsoft 365 business or education subscription, you can embed videos from Microsoft Stream, which is integrated within the Office ecosystem for secure video sharing.

When using videos from these or any other sources, always remember to:

  • Check Licensing : Ensure you have the right to use the video content from sources outside of YouTube, especially for commercial or educational use.
  • Review Terms of Use : Be aware of the terms of service for each platform, particularly how they allow their content to be used and embedded.
  • Test Before Presenting : Embed the video in your presentation well in advance and test to ensure playback compatibility and performance.
  • Internet Connection : Keep in mind that for embedded videos from online sources, an active internet connection is typically required for playback unless the platform offers an offline option.
  • Quality and Accessibility : Consider the video resolution and accessibility options, such as captions, to make your presentation inclusive for all audience members.
  • Backup Plan : Have a backup plan, such as downloading a local copy of the video (when permitted), in case of technical difficulties with streaming during the presentation.

By considering these factors and following platform-specific embedding procedures, you can include a diverse range of video sources in your PowerPoint presentations, enhancing the quality and variety of your content.

How Do I Enhance Audience Engagement Using Video Sections in PowerPoint?

Enhancing audience engagement using video sections in PowerPoint involves strategic placement, purposeful content, and interactive elements that make your presentation stand out. Below are strategies to leverage video sections effectively:

  • Strategic Video Placement : Introduce video sections at critical points to provide visual explanation or emphasize a key message. Position videos after a buildup of context to maximize their impact.
  • Relevant Content : Select videos that are directly linked to your presentation’s message. Ensure that the content is not only informative but also engaging and of interest to your audience.
  • Interactive Segments : Use video sections as a springboard for interaction. Pause for questions, initiate discussions, or follow up with an interactive quiz that reinforces the video content.
  • Short and Sweet : Keep video sections concise. Short clips are generally more engaging and are likely to hold the audience’s attention better than lengthy segments.
  • Create a Narrative : Use videos to tell a story rather than present stand-alone facts. Stories resonate with audiences, making your presentation more memorable.
  • Visually Dynamic : Opt for high-quality videos with clear images and dynamic content. A well-shot and well-edited video can command viewers’ attention in ways that text and static images cannot.
  • Bookmarking : Utilize bookmarks in your video sections to jump to specific points for elaboration or discussion. This also makes it easier to manage and navigate longer videos during a presentation.
  • Preview and Context : Before showing a video, provide a brief context or introduction to set expectations. After the video, summarize key points and relate them to your message.
  • Use Annotations : PowerPoint allows you to draw or highlight on slides during a presentation. You can use this feature to annotate key elements within your video as it plays.
  • Seamless Transition : Ensure transitions into and out of video sections are smooth. Use fade-ins and fade-outs where appropriate, and match the transition style to the mood of the video content.
  • Polling and Feedback : Encourage audience participation by integrating live polls or feedback sessions immediately following a video section, asking for their thoughts or reactions to the content.
  • Accessibility : Include subtitles or captions for your videos,ensuring that those with hearing impairments can also engage with the content fully.
  • Reflection Time : Offer a moment for the audience to reflect on the video content. This can be particularly effective after presenting complex information or emotionally charged materials.
  • Technical Reliability : Check the technical aspects beforehand to ensure videos play smoothly. Glitches or delays can quickly disengage your audience.
  • Consistent Look and Feel : Maintain a consistent design theme throughout your presentation and video sections. This consistency can help keep your audience grounded and focused.

By applying these methods, you’ll be able to create powerful and engaging video sections that enhance audience engagement and contribute to a more impactful PowerPoint presentation.

What Should I Do If a Video Won’t Play During a PowerPoint Presentation?

If you encounter a scenario where a video won’t play during a PowerPoint presentation, you’ll need to quickly troubleshoot the situation. Here are some practical steps to take:

  • Check Internet Connection : If the video is an online video, confirm that you have a stable internet connection. Try refreshing the connection or connecting to a different network.
  • Verify Video Link : For linked videos, ensure that the link is intact and that the video source is not moved or deleted. Verify that the video is still available at its source.
  • Supported Formats : Make sure the video is in a format supported by PowerPoint (such as MP4 with H.264 video codec and AAC audio codec). Convert the video file if necessary.
  • Codec Issues : The absence of the correct codec on your computer can prevent video playback. Install the necessary codec or use a media player that provides the required support.
  • Slide Show Mode : Ensure you’re in Slide Show mode as some videos may not play in the editing view.
  • Compatibility View : If you’re using an older version of PowerPoint, consider upgrading or ensuring the video format is compatible with the version you have.
  • Re-embed Video : Try re-embedding or re-inserting the video into the PowerPoint slide. This can sometimes resolve playback issues.
  • Check for Updates : Verify if your version of PowerPoint needs any updates, which may contain fixes for video playback issues.
  • Test on Different Device : If possible, try running your presentation on a different device to determine if the issue is with the original device’s hardware or software.
  • Prepare a Backup : If video playback continues to fail, have a backup plan such as a direct link to the video hosted online, a backup media player ready to play the video outside of PowerPoint, or carry a transcript or summary to deliver the content verbally.
  • Use Safe Mode : Open PowerPoint in Safe Mode to disable add-ins that might interfere with video playback.
  • Optimize Media Compatibility : Use the ‘Optimize Media Compatibility’ feature found in the Info section of File menu for newer PowerPoint versions, which can help resolve issues with multimedia file formats or codecs.

Alwaysremember to preview and test your slides and embedded videos before the actual presentation to catch and resolve potential issues. By following these troubleshooting steps, you can minimize the disruption caused by video playback problems and maintain the flow of your presentation.

How to Save a PowerPoint Presentation? [PPT & Other Formats!]

Saving a PowerPoint presentation is one of the most important things that you need to do when you are creating a presentation using PowerPoint. Unlike some of the modern web-based presentation applications, you need to make sure that you save a PowerPoint presentation when you are using an offline version!

To save a PowerPoint presentation, click on the “File” tab. Then, from the backstage view, click on the “Save” option from the left panel. Choose the location or the folder where you want to save the presentation on your computer, and click on “Save”.

In this article, we shall not only understand how to save a standard PPT or PPTx file, but we shall also take a look at how to save a PowerPoint presentation in different file formats such as a PDF, video or an image!

So, let’s get started!

1. How to Save a PowerPoint Presentation?

Once you have saved a PowerPoint presentation, you can easily save it again with just one click. Furthermore, you can also save a PowerPoint presentation in other formats. However, the process of saving a PowerPoint presentation is slightly different on Windows and on Mac.

Including a video in your PowerPoint presentation can make it more exciting and engaging. And it’s much easier than you might think. Read on for our step-by-step guide.

Before You Start, Find the Video

Finding your video first may sound like an obvious thing to do, but its location will determine how you go about embedding it in your PowerPoint presentation. You can use video from:

  • A file saved on your computer
  • An online source, such as YouTube , in which case you’ll need to copy its URL

Once you’ve found the video you want to use, follow the steps below to embed it in your PowerPoint.

How to Embed a Video From Your Computer

1. select the slide.

In your PowerPoint presentation, select the slide where you want to insert your video.

2. Click to Insert Media

For a video stored on your computer, you have two options:

  • Click on the Insert Video icon in the center of the screen (it looks like a couple of frames of film).

3. Select the Video File

Since you found the location of your video file before you started, it should be a quick job to select it in the pop-up box that appears. Then click Insert to embed the video in your slide.

How to Embed an Online Video

As before, start by choosing the slide where you want to insert your video.

With an online video, you will need to use the options in the ribbon. On the Insert tab, click on the arrow beside the Video icon and select Online Film .

Save embedded media from a presentation (audio or video)

If there's an audio or video clip in a PowerPoint file that you want to reuse elsewhere, you can do so by saving the clip as a separate media file (.mp4 or .m4a).

Right-click (or Control-click on macOS) the audio icon or video, and click Save Media as .

Slide containing an image and the Save as picture command selected in the shortcut menu

Tip:  Ensure your disk has enough space to save the media file, otherwise you'll have to free up space and try again.

In the Save Media as dialog box, choose a folder and also enter a name for the media file.

If the Save Media as option doesn't appear on the menu, then you have an older version of PowerPoint that doesn't support this feature. 

Select Save .

Note:  Starting in PowerPoint for Windows version 2211 and PowerPoint for Mac 16.67, if closed captions or subtitles in separate files have been inserted for the audio or video, then those files will also be saved alongside the audio or video file. All the files will be saved into a new folder with the name that you specify.

Install updates for PowerPoint 2013 to use this feature

If you're using PowerPoint 2013, make sure you have the necessary updates to it installed so that you can save a media file.

Check the following:

What version of Office am I using?

Install 15.0.4641.1001 or later for the Click-to-run version.

Install both of these updates ( KB2883051 and KB2883052 ) for all versions except Click-to-Run .

Once you have installed the correct updates, you can save the media file.
