Discover how to integrate and enhance video and audio to create a more engaging PowerPoint presentation. In this course, author Alicia Katz Pollock emphasizes the technical details necessary to make a multimedia presentation work: from working with appropriate file formats, to applying video styles, to reducing the file size of multimedia presentations for sharing.
Every video has its own built-in volume setting. However, it may be louder or quieter than the rest of your slideshow. If you need to adjust the volume of just one media clip, here's how to do it. I'm on slide 6 of my presentation and I'll click on my video. Let's hear how it sounds. (Male speaker: Hansel and Petal is awesome.) That was way too loud. Go up to the Video Tools Playback tab. In the center are a series of Video Options. Find the button that says Volume. When you click on the icon, a dropdown menu will appear with a range of volume settings, including Low, Medium, High, and Mute.
If you need to turn the Volume down, click Low. If you need to increase it, click High. If you need a smaller increment, choose Medium. If you want your media clip to play with no sound at all, set it to Mute. I'll move this to Low. Now, when I play my slideshow, the volume of the clip will be much more reasonable. (Male speaker: Hansel and Petal is awesome.) Also note that you can change the volume during the slideshow with this setting right over here on the right. The ability to set the volume for each of your videos may come in handy if they were created in a variety of sound levels, so that your slideshow is consistent.
