What parts of a presentation won't be included in a video?
Last Updated 4 years ago

The following items won't be included in a video that you create using PowerPoint:

  • Media inserted in previous versions of PowerPoint. To include these, you can convert or upgrade the media object.

    For example, if you inserted the media using PowerPoint 2007, it will be linked and it will play in the presentation. However, when you export the file as a video, the linked media will be dropped. You can convert the file to the new file format (click the File tab, and under Info, click Convert), or you can right-click the media object and then click to upgrade; it will embed the file and export it correctly.

  • QuickTime media (unless you have a third-party QuickTime codec named ffdShow installed and you have optimized for compatibility)
  • Macros
  • OLE/ActiveX controls
