Interesting new feature introduced in Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2010 is the ability to directly convert PowerPoint’s Files (Presentation or Slideshow) to Windows Media Video format (.WMV) without need to installing other third-party applications (document converter).

Unlike older versions of PowerPoint 2010 such as PowerPoint 2007, PowerPoint 2003, PowerPoint XP, PowerPoint 2000 and PowerPoint 97, will need another software to convert .ppt, .pptx, .pps files to .wmv (movie file).

Windows Media Video encoding is widely supported. PowerPoint 2010 includes built-in support to save presentation as Windows Media Video (wmv) video format.

How to Convert PowerPoint 2010 Files to .WMV

1- In PowerPoint 2010, click on [File] tab, then click on [Save As].

2- As we can see in the [Save As] dialog box, now select Windows Media Video in “Save as type” drop down list.

3- Type your desired file name for the video, and click on [Save] button.

4- A video creation progress bar will be displayed on PowerPoint’s status bar. Once process completed, the video can be played in Windows Media Player, Windows Media Player Classic (K-Lite), or other video/media players support .wmv playback.

    Anyone no why sounds recorded on slide transitions don’t record as part of the .wmv?

    I too have this problem. I noticed a message saying that some media files could not be included.
    It didn’t give any real help on how to fix the problem.

    How can I create a WMV file with audio?
    I have no problem saving as a movie but the audio portion drops.

    I’m working with PPT 2010 and trying to save my presentation and preserve my animation and the only way I think I can do that is by saving it as a WMV format I tried saving as a WMV but on my video creation progress bar it will move all the way almost to the end but will not finish. This is the second presentation I’m trying, it worked the first time but with problems it played back to blurey can anyone give me some feedback on this issue.

    Nice post but awful video creation feature from Microsoft. They have managed to exclude:
    - every video format other than WMV
    - every resolution above the paltry 960×720 HD? option
    - hidden in some obscure reference, that even their help files are too outdated and simplistic to help
    - a conversion process that is quick to complete – green bar is slowly progressing it might even be finished when I arrive back from lunch
    - Still need other special software to make the resulting WMV into a DVD

    I had created my ppt. and inserted by audio in Office 2007 and opened and saved it in 2010. The audio files would not include no the wmv. file. To fix the problem, I had to re-insert my audio in the 2010 version.

    I’m dealing with the same problem. I was able to create a .wmv out of draft version (which was 80% complete), but getting “Powerpoint could not finish creating video” now when trying with the completed version.

    I think its because its a loop you created. Make a presentation that ENDs and make it loop from your video player.
