How do I insert a WMV into PowerPoint for MAC?
Once you have Flip4MAC, there are a couple of ways to do this.
The most straight forward way is to simply change the file extension from .WMV to .MOV. This makes PowerPoint think that it is playing a QuickTime file instead of a WMV.
You can see more details here on Steve Rindsberg’s PPTFAQ site. (Personally, I would make a copy of the file before renaming it.)
If you have QuickTime Pro -you can follow these instructions from Flip4MAC:
“How do I import WMV files into PowerPoint?
import WMV files into PowerPoint, open the WMV video in QuickTime Pro. Select File/Save and save as a reference movie. Because no actual conversion is necessary with reference movies, this is a very
quick process. Then insert the .mov file into your PowerPoint presentation and proceed as usual. Although it is an extra step, it can be done very quickly and will make it possible to use WMV files in
your PowerPoint presentation.”
