Office 365 - PowerPoint - Insert and Play a Video File
Information about how to insert and play a video file while using PowerPoint on your computer.
Depending on the version of PowerPoint that you're using, you can insert an embedded video (the default behavior) or link to a video file stored on your computer.
- Inserting an embedded video is convenient, but it increases the size of your presentation.
- A linked video keeps your presentation file smaller, but links can break. We recommend storing presentations and linked videos in the same folder.
