Many a presentation has been improved after they add a video clip on PowerPoint slides, and in this article, we’ll lay out how to add a video to PowerPoint.
To do that, just open a new slide like this and go to the insert tab in the ribbon then click on the video.
Here you are able to see (online video) and (video on my PC) option.
For now, we just need to click on the video on my PC.
and select the video I rather have on my slide.
For example, I choose this video of Brian Tracy.
As you click on the video, it’s going to be played.
by pressing the Scape bottom on your keyboard you can pause it or again play it and by clicking on next, you’d have your next slide in front of you.
There are so many different features available in this part, as you click on the video and go to playback option, you can trim your video and cut the parts of the video you don’t need at all.
Now let’s see what happened.
You can also apply some settings on volume by choosing this option.
Or you can check the rewind after playing or choose “loop” until stopped.
You can even insert captions and so many other Capabilities you’re able to use.
Now let’s mention some points about videos:
1- First point:
First of all, I should emphasize that your video chip’s time should not be more than 2 minutes otherwise that would be boring for your audience, you can shorten your video by trimming them easily.
2- Second point:
A timetable or poster frame is so important if you want to make your video more attractive at the first view.
For this purpose, go to format Tab and click on the poster frame. Here you can upload an image or choose a frame of the video you want to be displayed as a poster frame, to do that just choose your ideal frame and check the current frame option in the ribbon. this is what happened now.
Let’s apply a poster by uploading a photo, look… That’s the result!
3- Third point:
You can make videos for your presentation.
For example, in one of my seminars, I asked a question from my audiences that if they really want to change their life or they’re just acting like this?
Here I wanted to show that some people say that we’re willing to swim, but that’s something they actually do. It’s how I could transfer my message to the audience without uploading any videos from elsewhere.
Or here we prepared a speech for the ones who wanted to sell their villas complexes, so I recorded a video of myself, standing on the balcony, to show that I’ve also been there and I confirm the quality of that.
Videos have a certain amount of impression on the audience. They attract people to watch more carefully to see how it ends even if it’s a video of Brian Tracy talking about motivation and setting purpose in life. It doesn’t always have to be animation video clips, etc. When you learn how to add a video clip on PowerPoint slides, you can have the best presentation.
