Jing Videos in PowerPoint (Windows Only)

Wanna learn a cool trick? Next time you have to give a presentation, wow your audience with an embedded video. This will help you explain certain things without the usual static screen captures and bullet points.

There’s a couple of ways to do it. There’s the easy way, which requires you have a copy of TechSmith’s SnagIt software. SnagIt’s Add-in makes it easy to drop a video into a slide. I’ve made a Jing video showing this process. You can learn more about all the SnagIt add-in’s here.

You don’t have to have SnagIt in order to put Jing videos in PowerPoint presentations, but PowerPoint doesn’t make it obvious like inserting an image. I’ve found and tried a couple of resources on the Web.

The process is fairly similar on PowerPoint 2003 and 2007.
