Four methods to embed .flv to PowerPoint

No, PPT won’t recognize FLV files as movies — you can’t embed Flash in PowerPoint, apparently, and it is kind of a pain in the butt– so you need to convert it to mpeg, avi ,wmv etc. that PowerPoint can recognize. After a lot of trial and error I have my methods down, so I thought I would share it with you all.

Four Methods:
1.If your flv video is on YouTube or mySpace, Just follow these steps:
1.1 Copy the YouTube or mySpace video URL (example: http://youtube.com/watch?v=J7JmsMMIR4Y )
1.2 Go to http://vixy.net which is FREE online conversion service. Paste the URL in the conversion box
1.3 Select the output format such as “AVI,MOV,MP4” and click the button ”start” . All conversion would be done automatically.
1.4 When the conversion is done, download the output video to the local disk on your computer.
1.5 Insert the video to your PowerPoint presentation.
PowerPoint -> Insert-> Movies and sounds->Movies from file

2. If your flv video is on your computer. Visit http://www.media-convert.com/ and follow these steps.
2.1 Browse your local disk and select the FLV video to be converted.
2.2 Select the expected output format and click the button “Convert”
2.3 When the conversion is done, download the output video to your computer
2.4 Then insert the video to your PowerPoint presentation.

3.Learn from video is the most intuitionistic way:)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zwqyg5uNClY

4. Fast and batch conversion using conversion software
if you have lots of FLV videos to convert, you may use a conversion tool to save time. There are several tools that can convert Flv video. I use a program called FLV to Video Converter Pro(http://www.flvsoft.com/).
