Powerpoint Question.

Wed Apr 28, 2010 8:59 pm

Done a Microsoft Powerpoint presentation and embedded a video. Is it possible to save the video as part of the presentation file as opposed to just leaving it in the same directory (i.e for email purposes).....?

Wideos are, more than 9 times out of ten, too large in file size to survive as email attachments.

Quoting Airstud (Reply 1):

that's a bold statement. My company allows us to send and receive emails of any size. my personal largest attachments have been 50 MB. As long as the person on other side of the email can send/receive that size, it should work, no?

Have you tried saving the file as a power point slide show (.pps format)? I have no clue if that works. What I know you can do is convert the video to a shock-wave flash object (.swf) and embed it in your presentation. This way it will be saved as part of the presentation just like a .gif animation or .jpg photo.
There will come a time when you believe everything is finished - that will be the beginning.
