  1. Converting Powerpoint Presentation to Movie

    To answer "why".....the original presentation was done on a Mac and runs just fine on that computer. I would have left it alone were it mine, but........This is going to be displayed on an Intel Stick (connected to a TV) which does not have Power Point. The Power Point viewer did not operate very well with this particular presentation (loads of uncompressed videos and images). To reduce the cost, I suggested that they just run this as a video instead of needing to purchase Power Point (I believe that the no-license version of Office 365 will still allow you to play slideshows, but I didn't want to have to deal with the troubleshooting). We just converted to video and ran it from VLC instead which is working fine so far.

  2. I have a slideshow that I am creating for somebody. The machine that we will be using is a Windows 10 machine and has Office 365. Office 365 doesn't operate for more than about 1 month without an internet connection. This slideshow is going to be in a kiosk and will be running from an Intel Stick. It doesn't have an internet connection and we just want to have the looping slideshow. Without having to purchase another several hundred dollar copy of an older version of Office, is there a way to make this work just from Powerpoint?

    I have already tried the Microsoft Powerpoint Viewer utility and it does not work very well (not to mention they no longer support it).

    The second question.....I am attempting to convert this slideshow from a slideshow presentation to an .mp4. The slideshow has 3 embedded videos and a total size of 170mb. Powerpoint simply refuses to convert this to a video. I save-as and select .mp4 and the CPU usage immediately goes to 100%. It will not progress beyond about 5%. I am sure this has something to do with the size of the presentation, but I have already edited the videos so they are as small as possible. Any ideas or external software?

    Can you create a PowerPoint presentation with hyperlinks, animations, and transitions that can be viewed on smartphones and offline? I've converted a ppt to an interactive PDF but it won't show most animations and transitions. A PowerPoint Show requires
    the user download a view app and we have thousands of users and can't guarantee they will do that. Seems so simple, but I'm stuck. Suggestions?

    Converting Powerpoint Presentation to Movie

    How can I burn pictures on a DVD with a music

    Hi Mike,

    It sounds like you will have to create a slideshow first. To do this, you will have to use a video editor software similar to Windows Movie Maker before. Since that software is no longer available for download, you can search the Windows Store to install
    an alternative app.

    If you want, you can also use a Powerpoint presentation to create this slideshow. Check this

    on how you can burn your Powerpoint presentation to a DVD.

    Best regards.

    You could just run the presentation and use the gamebar to record it. It should also recorded the embedded videos if you play them.

  7. I got it to work. Powerpoint does not manipulate large files very well. I shrunk the embedded videos to a much smaller size and it was then able to convert the presentation to .mp4 (took about 30 minutes however).

    Some more information about the Office Viewers which were useful when not having Office itself:
    I've seen the PowerPoint Viewer running in a loop, haven't needed to try it myself.
    About half way down is new information about products that may be of use.

    If you'd care to elaborate on how you did the conversion, that would be helpful for other readers, too. Thanks! Glad you got it sorted.

  10. The problem with the Powerpoint viewer is that it would not run this slideshow without a very choppy playback rate. I didn't go any further than that. If you do try to use Powerpoint's built in conversion method, just make sure the video files are small enough. I don't know what the limit is, but the first version I tried to convert was a total size of about 700mbs......too big apparently. I shrunk it down to 170mb.

    Could be the problem with the CD version of a slideshow, original limit was 650MB and newest is 700MB, not a byte over, probably some less due to the formatting of the disc. Don't know if PP was ever set up to use DVD discs.

    Hi there
    Not an answer to your question - but as someone who often studies things why on earth would you want to turn a decent power point session into a movie

    I often dispair when I want to find out something and everybody seems to be going bonkers with You tube demos etc.

    Apart from the fact that these are often accompanied by excuciatingly hideous music most people's recording equipment makes a bunch of road drills or a posse of jcb excavator vehicles sound positively benign.

    With written instructions and a decent power point presentation you can stop at difficult points, make notes etc etc.

    Unless it's a 1-off demo I'd leave it as power point.
    The other problem with movies is that unless accent of speaker is clear for loads of people these things are unintelligeable.

    Just my point though -- I'm sure there other who will violently disagree but learning to assemble complex machinery in my business using a You tube amateur presentation is a total recipe for disaster !!!!!!.

    About the only time I've used one of these things successfully was on trying to open the case on a server - and even then I turned the sound off !!!
