Encoding: How to insert a movie into PowerPoint?
I dont even know if I'm in the right place but i'll try! I'm working with Power pint for Windowns, and when I try to insert a movie it says that it doesn work cause it's a non-standart movie! what is this? and how can i fix it?

Yes, I guess this would be the right place :D

What formats are permitted in PowerPoint :?:
What format is your movie :?:


EduFonseca 04-26-2004 01:07 PM

my movies are MPG, and it accepts AVI and WMA... dunno

kwag 04-26-2004 01:10 PM

I'm stuck on this one, because I don't use PowerPoint :!:
Anybody else here uses PowerPoint :?:

but i guess the thing isn't about power point! 2 questions:
- Is there any program to convert MPG files to another kind of video files?
- What is a non-standart movie?

PowerPoint from office 97 allows mpg files, so newer versions should also do this.
Non standar movie might be SVCD mpg file (or muxed as SVCD). MPEG1 file muxed as VCD works fine. Search through forum for information about re-muxing this file to VCD format.

I do use PowerPoint in our agency (and btw. it sucks!! - shure Microsoft, ... just do author a PP. preentation for MAC incl. .mov's and you cant give it to your clients who are using pc! - this sucks!) ;-)

I made many mpeg clips for importing into PP. and never had trouble.

From where are these clips?


mpeg1 or mpeg2?
length! ?
