Embedding in Power Point - video & mp3
« on: June 24, 2010, 09:38:33 AM »
I'm working on a PowerPoint now that invovles asking questions to the students after they watch videos, unfortunately, some of the answers appear on the screen when I open the youtube link.  I think that having the video right there in the PowerPoint would fix this problem.

Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks!

youtubedownload.altervista.org

Download the video with youtubedownloader. Convert it to .wmv or .avi with youtubedownloader 

Save it to the same folder as the powerpoint. Then insert it. In Korean powerpoint, menu I then submenu V then select F. I don't have English powerpoint but I would guess insert menu, media submenu, select video/movie . 

It is good to know so you can take powerpoints to classrooms with no internet as well.

If you have the English version it is quite simple. I would download the video using one of the many firefox add-ons and then click on the "insert" tab and then go to the far right and click on movie. Then click "add movie from file" and choose the vid that you want to play. You can choose some options if you want it to play automatically or when click. I always find clicking works better for kids because you may want to control them a bit and get their attention.

If you have realplayer you can also easily download and convert videos from anywhere on the web.

I liked this one for 2007 when I learned.  But I had to do a lot of counting to figure out what it was in Korean.  But It works really well.  Good luck~!

SOS: How do I save a You Tube video to my powerpoint?
« Reply #8 on: January 14, 2011, 11:33:31 AM »
Hi guys

I have a lesson in one hour and the internet in my classroom is not working today. So I'm trying to save my You Tube video for the class onto my powerpoint presentation so that I don't need to rely on the net. But have no clue how to do this. Any suggestions. Thank you

You can also download videos with Real Player and then convert to multiple formats.

I usually convert to a wmv and then insert it into my ppt.

It's actually remarkably simple, but it does depend on what version of PowerPoint you have.  One of the coolest websites on the planet for explaining anything from that to how you can make a smoke bomb or whatever...is www.wonderhowto.com
(At least I think that's the address)!

Go there, and in the search box put in powerpoint and it will likely come up with a few minute video tutorial on how to do it.  Then you can literally imbed the video in the ppt.

Powerpoint 2003:

1. Load your developer toolbox.  View (V) > Toolbars (T) > Control Box (컨트롤 도구 상자)
2. In the control box, you will see a little tool looking icon, click that
3. In the list it displays select shockwave flash object
4. Make a bounding box on your sheet
5. Right click the new shockwave box, and select properties (I)
6. Paste the link of the movie into "Movie" you will need to edit the link as it won't be recognized:

the link will look something like this xxxxxxx.youtube.com/watch?v=5XEN4vtH4Ic

you need to remove the "watch?" part, and replace all ='s signs with /'s like so:

xxxxxxxxx.youtube.com/v/5XEN4vtH4Ic

Then in the embed movie option, select true

End.

2007 is similar, but you need to load developer tools in order to get your control open.

You can link a PPT slide to a video but the video can't actually be encoded into the presentation, AFAIK.  So just play the video separately using VLC or whatever else you have handy that'll play an FLV.

You can download a video from YouTube and have it play in a PowerPoint file, but it is an extremely convoluted process (at least it is with Office 2003, which is what I'm using).  The reason is that PPT doesn't directly support .flv files.  As a result, you have to wrap the .flv in a .swf file (or some other format that PPT recognizes).

If you must do this, then do the following:

- Download the YouTube video with DownloadHelper.
- Download Moyea FLV Editor Lite.
- Open your .flv file in Moyea, and then export it to a .swf file
- In your PowerPoint, insert a Shockwave Flash object (you can find it using the icon that looks like a hammer and wrench). 
- In the Properties of the SWF object, look at the "Movie" property and add the path to your file.  Example: Videos\TEST.swf **
- View the PPT in full-screen mode to see if it works.

**I recommend using relative filenames (ex: "videos\file.swf") and not "C:\blah blah blah blah\Videos\filename.swf"  With relative filenames, the PPT and videos will work anywhere as long as they are in the same place relative to each other.  The problem with full filenames like "C:\yadda yadda yadda\myfile.swf" is that they will break if you bring the files to a new computer and have a different directory structure. 

If anyone has an easier way, let me know.  But basically, you will have to use *something* to convert the file so PPT can understand it.

Unnecessary.

indeed.  just do what daejeon said.

but, for the future, if you ever want to download a video, you can use a program like freestudio manager to extract the video which can automatically convert the video into mp4 or avi format. then you could insert the video file just like you normally would.

remember what spacerock said about relative filenames.

Sigh.  If you're not going to answer the question that was asked, don't waste people's time answering what you wish they asked.  The first sentence of the original question: "I have a lesson in one hour and the internet in my classroom is not working today."

hahaha, ok, ok. you're welcome.

however, you do realize that internet is required for your method, too?  you have to "download"  "videodownloadhelp" and "moyea FLV editor lite. "

anyway, OP, hope at least one of these methods proves to be useful for you in the future.

haha, ok, let's just stop the bickering and agree we each found a solution for the OP, but they all require the Internet.

good job, guys! ^^
