Embed videos in PowerPoint

You can quickly embed Discovery Education videos that you have downloaded into your Microsoft Office PowerPoint presentations.

In PowerPoint, on the "Insert" dropdown menu, select "Movies and Sounds" and then click the "Movie from File" option. In the "Insert Movie" window, navigate to the appropriate folder; select the video segment and then click "OK". A dialogue box will prompt you to decide whether you wish to have the video play automatically or not.  

PowerPoint accepts the .ASF file format. If your video ends in a .ASX file extension, you can right click on it, choose "Rename", and change the extension from ASX to ASF (ex: "The_Visitor.asf"). PowerPoint does not accept .MOV files.
