One question I’ve been asked numerous times by other PowerPoint designers is this, “I’ve got a Quicktime movie that runs great in PPT on my Mac. However, my client is on a PC and it doesn’t work for them at all. How can I run QT in PPT on a PC?”
Well, the simple answer is this: you can’t. Quicktime is not supported in PowerPoint in the Windows version, only the Mac version. But, there is a solution.
There’s a utility program that easily converts QT video to WMV video, which is a format that does run in PPT on the PC. The program is called Wondershare Video Convertor and you can find it here:
It’s only $50 and well worth it.
Once you run a QT video through this convertor, you will have the WMV format video that runs easily on PC’s in PowerPoint.
