Add AVI Video to PowerPoint Presentation for Playback


To make a PPT, you may always try to embed some videos like AVI to PowerPoint presentation, which can make it much more entertaining and informative. Whereas, PowerPoint only inserts few video formats including ASF, FLV, MPEG, and WMV. When you add AVI files to PowerPoint, you may get errors:

"I am trying to embed an AVI video in my PowerPoint presentation. I've inserted it as a "movie" but when I actually run the slideshow, the video flashes black consistently and is unwatchable."

As far as we know, the best format that all PowerPoint versions can support is WMV, which are created by Microsoft itself. So if you want to insert an AVI video into PowerPoint for presentation, you'll need to convert AVI(DivX/XviD) to WMV and then add the converted video to PPT for playing. To accomplish the task, you need to seek help from Brorsoft Video Converter, which supports that AVI input and WMV output.
