Regardless of what PresenterMedia customizer you use to create a video, you can select from two different download options: PPTX or MP4. If you choose not to customize the video and use our quick downloads, you will find the options to download as PPTX, MP4, and WMV.
The fastest and easiest way to start with your video is to download the PPTX file. It will already have your video loaded and ready for creating an engaging presentation.
There are a couple of ways to insert videos into PowerPoint, and it's a fairly simple process.
To copy a video from a downloaded PPTX file and use it in a different presentation, follow these steps:
How to Paste: If you copied your video using the first three steps, you can just use the paste option "picture" from the paste options.
If you choose option 4 to copy your video, you will have these paste options when pasting the video.
There are two different areas you can insert a video into PowerPoint.
The first option: This option is located in the Ribbon menu under INSERT.
The second option: This option will depend on what slide layout is displayed. If you create a new slide, a box should show different media options to insert.
If it doesn't show this slide with icons, right click on the slide thumbnail and choose the layout option.
Note* - After using either of these methods, simply navigate to the folder with your video and click Insert.
If you want to add a video from Youtube to your PowerPoint presentation, you must first copy the link from the youtube video shown in the image below.
First, click the Share button under your Youtube video, then choose the Copy option from the pop-up window.

After you click on the video option after the Insert menu, choose Online Videos from the drop-down.
1. right-click in the area that says: Enter the Address for the Online Video, and choose paste.
2. Click the insert button to add the Youtube video to the slide you selected in PowerPoint.
Navigate to the folder on your computer containing your video, select it with your cursor and, drag it into your PowerPoint presentation. It’s that simple.
