How to convert Power-Point 2010 presentation to a video?

Have you ever wondered how cool it would be if power-point presentation could be converted into a video. You may share it at You-tube and view it from PC and mobile who even don't have Power-Point installed in it. Interesting, isn't it. Now i'll tell how how to convert .ppt files to video file without installing any third party software. All you need to do is follow these steps:

  1. Create your presentation.
  2. Save the presentation.
  3. On the File menu, click Save & Send.
  4. Under Save & Send, click Create a video.
  5. To display all video quality and size options, under Create a video, click theComputer & HD Displays down arrow.
  6. Do one of the following:
    • To create a video with very high quality, yet a large file size, clickComputer & HD Displays.
    • To create a video with a moderate file size and medium quality, clickInternet & DVD.
    • To create a video with the smallest file size, yet low quality, click Portable Devices.
  1. Click the Don't Use Recorded Timings and Narrations down arrow and then, do one of the following:
    • If you did not record and time voice narration and laser pointer movements , click Don't Use Recorded Timings and NarrationThe default time spent on each slide is set to 5 seconds. To change that, to the right of Seconds to spend on each slide, click the up arrow to increase, or the down arrow to decrease the seconds.
    • If you recorded and timed narration and pointer movements , click Use Recorded Timings and Narrations.
  1. Click Create Video.

  2. In the File name box, enter a file name for the video, browse for folder that will contain this file, and then click Save. You can track the progress of the video creation by looking at the status bar at the bottom of your screen. The video creation process is very slow can take up to several hours depending on the length of the video and the complexity of the presentation.
  1. Now enjoy your newly-created video, you may upload it on You-tube or Facebook to share with your friends or even use it on the computer where MS Office is not installed.

    Unfortunately this trick is just for Power-Point version 10 and it does not work with any other earlier version so if you need to enjoy this trick, get yourself Office 2010.
