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.
