Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Inserting a video from file, part of Up and Running with Office Mix.
- We know how to insert video as a screen recording. If we wanted to insert a video that was in a file, we'd use this command to do it. Go to the slide where you want to insert the video, click the mix tab, and under insert, choose insert video. Select the file you wish to insert. There's a message that says PowerPoint is upgrading the media file. If you click cancel here, you're cancelling inserting the media, so we're just going to wait for it a bit, and I'm going to resize this, so it fills this slide, and let's see how it looks.
Superb. And again, as with the video that we captured, you can adjust using the playback and formatting video tools.
Author Gini Courter provides an overview of the add-in, and then shows how to plan a mix and insert screenshots, videos, and screen recordings. She then shows how to preview and upload the mix, and save it as a video that can be hosted online.
Along the way, she explains how to add narration and annotations, add interactive content like true/false or multiple-choice questions, and share and distribute the mix.
