In this video, staff instructor Jess Stratton shows users how to export a narrated presentation as an MP4 or Windows Media Player file. The video file can be uploaded to YouTube, or burned to a CD.
- [Instructor] You can save your presentation as an MP4 video file or as a Windows Media Player file right from PowerPoint. PowerPoint can even include your audio on the slideshow tab. If you recorded your slideshow or set timings your video can use those. For any slides that don't have a narration or set timing you can tell it how long you want each slide to remain before moving on to the next one. To create a video, click file on the top left-hand side of your screen, choose export, and then choose create a video. You need to make some choices. The first one is what file size and quality do you want your video to be.
It defaults to full HD, which is a large file size, and full, high-quality video. You can also choose Ultra HD, HD, and all the way down to standard. Full HD will have the largest file size and the best quality while standard will have a small file size but your pictures and slides may be blurry. I'll leave it as Full HD. After that, you can choose whether or not you want to use any recorded timings and narrations. In addition, if you don't have any on your presentation you can put them in recording right from here by choosing record timings and narrations.
If you want to review them one more time to see what your final video will look like you can choose preview timings and narrations. I'm going to tell it to use my recording timings and narrations, and I'll also leave it as the default five seconds for each slide that doesn't have an existing time set. Click create video and you'll be prompted to give it a name and save it to a location. I'll save this to the desktop, and I'll save it as type MPEG4. You can use the dropdown if you'd prefer to save it as a Windows Media video.
I'll click save. And down in the very bottom of the screen you can see it currently creating a video. Depending on the file size of your presentation it could take a while to save it. When the notification goes away at the bottom that means it's done, so let's take a look. Here's my video, so I'll double-click on it. - [Recorded Voice] Welcome to the Sales Strategy 2019 presentation. Everything you'll hear is confidential. - [Instructor] And that's that. Now you'll have a nice video that you can put anywhere.
You can put it on YouTube, though I wouldn't put this fake but apparently confidential video online. You can send it around your office. You can do anything you want to with it.
