Hello guys...

I have some trouble over here... My friend pass me a .ppt file n ask me to burn to a DVD so it can be play back in a dvd player. I told him to straight away use Window Movie Maker so it can put in some picture n wording on it and beside that can save as wmv or mpg file. He say that the file is already done by his company so he don't have those picture with him. The only way is convert the .ppt file to wmv or mpg file so I only can use nero to burn it.

I really hope you guys can help me with this. Which software is better to convert the ppt file to mpg? If can i prefer freeware because i will just only use once only.

Thanks for your help.

The software can convert .ppt to DVD directly. It also supports converting to MPEG.

It can be done but is far from simple and may give disappointing results.

There are a lot of programs that can accomplish this but the transition effects are never converted. However, what you can do is that you use a freeware screen capturing tool such as CamStudio ( http://files.brothersoft.com/CamStudio.exe ) and AviScreen Classic ( http://www.bobyte.com ) but dont expect the "flow" of the transition to be perfect (or even good for that matter).

Can you try just burning the ppt as 'data' on the dvd and pop it into a dvd player and play it there?  Its worth a quick shot if you don't mind burning one dvd to test it out to see if you can save yourself from installing a bunch of programs.

Microsoft PowerPoint does not allow you to write a PowerPoint presentation file to a DVD.
There are many third-party products available on the market, which can be used to capture your slide shows and convert them to video files.

Some of the more interesting ones include Office FX, CamTasia, HyperCam, ScreenCam, and PPT2DVD. Mac users can use products such as Screenography and Snapz Pro.

After creating a video file, you can write a DVD using your favorite DVD burning software such as Nero Vision Express, and create a DVD.
