  15. 4.17 What is an FLV File

Inserting FLV to a PowerPoint helps make a better, more appealing, and more interesting presentation. Unfortunately, FLV is a native document file created by Adobe Flash program, in the form of .f4v and FLV format, which is incompatible with the PowerPoint and cannot be attached to a PowerPoint directly. However, the PowerPoint supports many other file formats such as AVI, WMV, and many others. Therefore, the practical way to attach an FLV video to a PPT is converting them to other formats that can be inserted into the PowerPoint directly. This article has outlined four effective ways of attaching FLV to PowerPoint slides, including converting files to compatible formats using Wondershare UniConverter (originally Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate).

Part 1. Add a Direct Link to Online FLV Video

Step 1 Insert any object that can be edited to the PowerPoint. You can insert a dialog box, an image, or a shape.

Step 2 Then right-click on the object you embed and then from the listed options, choose “Hyperlink.”

Step 3 After clicking “Hyperlink,” you can add or paste the URL of the FLV video that you want to link.

Step 4 Click on the object with the video links, and once you do that, a new browser will pop up and take you to the page where the video is to be played.

Step 5 You can get the URL of the FLV video by copying the video address from the YouTube address bar.

Part 2. Convert FLV to Other Video Formats (WMV, AVI, and MPEG)

Wondershare UniConverter (originally Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate) is the best solution to FLV conversions. It helps convert FLV to PowerPoint compatible formats such as AVI, MPEG, WMV, etc. The converter effectively retains the original quality of the video file, and it converts at a speed that is 90 times faster than other converters.

The tool has a preview and editing option, and you can preview and edit your video file before conversion.
