Inserting or linking a large video within a Powerpoint 2010 file

Recommended Posts

I am using PowerPoint 2010 and wanted to insert a video to within the PowerPoint file, but it makes the whole file 333 MB or (349,755,736 bytes). I need to burn the whole PowerPoint with the video onto a CD for distribution to my clients.

So I am looking for an option whereby I could instead insert a link to the video, so that I could burn both to the same CD. This would require that whatever I inserted as a link to the video was directed to the location on the CD being burned.

Right now, under the “Insert” “Video” menu’s I have only two choices: “Video from File” or “Video from Web”. Any suggestions, anyone?

You're close. Use the Insert Video from File button as normal. But, when selecting a file in the browse Window there is a small down arrow next to the Insert button. Click the small arrow and you'll see an option to "Link to File"

Note: To prevent complications with broken links, keep the videos in the same folder as your presentation, and link then them there.

      We are using Outlook 2010 here at the office. And several people are getting the message that there inbox is out of space. And those people have over 3500 emails in there inbox. When I started here I made folders for everyone of my subjects so I can archive easely. But now I want to know how many emails I have.
      Q: How do I find out how many emails I have, including all the folders, using Outlook 2010?

      Employer changed e-mail account names after company name change. Approx 1 month later Outlook flags stopped working appropriately. all but one selection flag "today" stopped working. How do I fix this?
      Searched for Outlook settings affecting flags, customized ribbon by setting-up new group to appear in the ribbon (the options I want, display as greyed out and not available still), searched on-line for fixes for the problem (only found fixes for Outlook 2007 OR upgraded systems - 2007 to 2010). Have asked IT to re-install Outlook (not happened yet)..., THEN looked at the 'old' e-mail account with the company's old name and all the flag functions I used are functional there..., but NOT in the new e-mail account! Got any suggestions?

      I have a user with a previous version of Excel that was password protected AND encrypted. Now another user who has the password is using Excel 2010 and can not open it. The error message says "Excel cannot open this file. Encryption type is not available." However, several others in her dept. can open it.
