How to Share your Video

  • Embed the video into a Web page
  • Send the video file by email

  • Save the video to a file share site like Windows Live.

Tips recording your presentation as a video:

  • record and time voice narration and laser pointer movements in your video.
  • include animations and transitions in your movie.
  • viewers do not need to have PowerPoint installed on their computers to watch it.
  • if your presentation contains an embedded video, the video will play correctly without your needing to control it.

Depending on the content of your presentation, creating a video may take some time. You can continue to use PowerPoint while the video is being created

View a Presentation on the Web

The Broadcast Slide Show feature in PowerPoint 2010 enables presenters to share a slide show with anyone, anywhere, over the Web. You send a link (URL) to your audience, and then everyone watches a synchronized view of your slide show in their browser.

Choosing a broadcast service The Broadcast Slide Show feature requires a network service to host the slide show. You can choose from among several services, including a SharePoint server within your organization but for this course we will use the PowerPoint Broadcast Service. This service is available to anyone with a Windows Live ID. Anyone on the Internet will be able to access the URL for a slide show hosted on this service.

Before you broadcast your presentation:

  • The presenter and audience need to be connected to the Internet. The broadcast slide show feature can be viewed in the Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari for Mac browsers.
  • There may be a limit on the file size for broadcasted slide shows depending on the broadcast service
  • Some PowerPoint features are changed when the slide show is broadcasted online:
    • all transitions in your presentation appear as Fade transitions in the browser
    • audio (sounds, narration) is not transmitted to the audience through the browser
    • you can�t follow a hyperlink in your presentation to a Web site, the attendees will only see the last slide you showed in the original presentation
    • you can�t run a video in your presentation, the browser does not show it to the audience.
