How can I use your explainer videos with PowerPoint or other presentation software?
PowerPoint lets you add videos by either inserting a video file, or by using a link to a web page which has the video e.g. the link YouTube provides.
As you need to be logged in, using a link to the page won’t work with our Trainer/Presenter videos, but there’s a very simple workaround.
If you login to access your videos in a browser, and also have your PowerPoint running, you can switch between PowerPoint and your browser using the shortcut Alt+Tab (PC) or Command+Tab (Mac).
Here’s an example.
Here’s my slide in PowerPoint. I’ve taken a screen grab of the thumbnail image (the static image at the beginning of the video), pasted it into PowerPoint and cropped it. When I come to this point in the presentation, it looks like the start of the video. You can also download thumbnails from our Resources page.
