By Cecilia Hwung | Last Update:

No matter you are a student preparing a presentation for a subject, a tutor making a demo for trainees, or a marketer calling for business collaborations, PowerPoint is always the primary and easiest way to show your ideas. But never take it as a collection of plain still slides. Studies show that video is the most effective form to impress audiences, but ignored in most cases. And only 4% of presenters utilize videos in their PowerPoint files. So size the chance to stand out by adding videos to your PowerPoint.

However, many precious and authoritative videos are documented on DVDs. Is it possible to embed a DVD clip into a PowerPoint?

Step 2. Choose an Output Format Best for PowerPoint

VideoProc reads all titles of the DVD and presents the one with the full content in the first line. Alternatively, you can preview each one to figure out the desired one. Hit on the title and adjust the subtitle track and chapter list if necessary.

Next, click Video at the bottom of the screen and select an output format. PowerPoint supported video formats include MP4, AVI, WMV, AFS, and MPG.

If you are using PowerPoint 2010, WMV is the most recommended file format. As for newer versions, we suggest converting the DVD to an MP4 file encoded with H.264 video and AAC audio.

Option: Edit the DVD Video for PowerPoint

Since embedding a whole DVD video into your PowerPoint will increase the file size and makes it a challenge to upload and share this PowerPoint online. Moreover, a video of 30 - 60 seconds would be ideal for your PowePoint presentation. So before we start the conversion, cut your DVD into a smaller piece in VideoProc.

Click the scissor icon on the DVD file to access VideoProc video editor. Drag the green knobs to set the start and end time for a short clip. Then click the Cut button next to the slider to shorten the DVD video for conversion. You can repeat the step to cut out multiple clips and VideoProc will merge them into one video automatically. Then hit Done to close the editing panel.

Tips: In addition to the cut option, the DVD editing panel also features other tools like effects, subtitle, crop, rotate, and watermark. You can edit the video for PowerPoint as you like.

Step 3. Convert DVD to PowerPoint with High Quality

Select a folder on your computer to save the converted DVD video. Then toggle on the following settings:

  • Hardware Acceleration to speed up the conversion speed while keeping the CPU usage at a lower level.
  • Safe Mode to prevent the conversion from stopping accidentally.
  • Deinterlacing to detect and remove interlacing strips from the DVD video.
  • Use High Quality Engine to rip and convert the DVD in the best video quality, but it will slow down the process.

Now hit the big RUN button to start converting the DVD for PowerPoint.

The DVD embedded in PowerPoint is attached with a playback bar with which you can preview the whole video. Also, you can resize the video frame by dragging each corner of the video placeholder freely.

Pro Tips:

Inserting an embedded DVD video to your PowerPoint is convenient, but it increases the size of the final file. To keep it smaller, we suggest linking the video to your presentation file.

Open the "Insert" tab and click "Video" > "Video on My PC". Select the file you want to link to. Hit the down arrow beside the Insert option, and click "Link to File".

Note: The video clip should be stored in the same folder as the PowerPoint file, otherwise the link would get broken during the playback.
