• Proven solutions
PowerPoint is such a nifty tool for creating presentations. The sky is the limit for your presentation. You can add narration, animation, even video background. What is the point of adding video background? Well, for starters, you can add a music video to play in the background. Or you can just add a video like beach waves to go along with your presentation. Today, we will learn how to add video background to PowerPoint. The task is rather easy, and you can make motion background for PowerPoint, or PowerPoint video transparent background.
Before we start with the guide, we have to stress some things. To begin with, you have to choose a royalty-free video for your presentation, or a video you have permission to use. You do not want to get tangled into a legal battle over copyrights. With that in mind, here is the quick guide for how to make PowerPoint video background.
If you want to insert a web video from an online source, you can follow these steps. Newer versions of Microsoft Office allow YouTube links, Vimeo links, and even online videos from Microsoft Stream, a video service for enterprises.
As you can see, adding a video as the background of the slide is rather easy. There are also some tricks you can use. PowerPoint makes the video background as the default bottom layer of the slide. Make sure to choose a slide background color that matches the video for a seamless look.
Note: To adjust any settings, go to the “Video Tools Playback” tab. It is located near the top of your screen. Then you can click on the drop-down arrow next to the “Start”, and change it to “Automatically” if you want to make the video play automatically. By default settings, the video plays “On Click”.
PowerPoint presentations can be opened as PDF documents as well. When you open a PPT/PPTX file as a PDF file, you can widen the range of edits you can make. There is no doubt that PowerPoint is a versatile tool on its own, but PDF is a multi-platform and multi-OS file format. You can open PDF files on virtually everything.
