Share to Video grayed out in Powerpoint 2010

I'm in windows server 2008, so I'm wondering if I'm missing a codex or something? I have installed the media streamer component, but I don't think I have media player installed as there's no sound card on the server. Work arounds anyone?

Hello,

what exactly are you trying to do?

Trying to export a Powerpoint presentation as a video to use on my website. I was not able to load office 2010,  the only version of PP to have that video export feature, on my local desktop.
I did finally get the office beta 2010 to load on my desktop yesterday.
Once on my local machine the option was available and I "shared" to video.
So I guess this is resolved.
But now media won't play on webpages from my server. I guess I need some type of media player or server loaded there.

You would have to embed a player on your web page, depending on the format, that would decide the appropriate player.

Why not upload the video to YouTube and embed the video from there.  This approach will not work if the content is of a sensitive nature.

Thank you, Firebar,
YouTube is a good idea.
I'm studying Silverlight and want to embed the video with a song in a SL media player, actually 14 songs. But it's a learning curve.

Right now I'm settling for the media player in Expression Web 3,
which I embedded in the web page, but when I try load the page on a browser on my server, I'm prompted to download Media Player, but then Windows Server 2008 rejects it.
The page won't play in my desktop browser either, where media player is installed.

My server doesn't have a sound card. Does that mean it won't stream or "service" pages with embedded sound and video media?

Oh you asked about format. They are Asp.net Web applications in Net.frame 4.02.
I'm using Visual Studio 2010 sp2 Beta and Expression 3 on Win Server 2008 Enterprise.

The lack of a sound card should not have any impact on streaming.  It could be you need to install the desktop feature, which can include Windows Media Player

ok, I'll install the desktop feature on the server. I think that's what craped out on me. I'll try again. Do I need the media server installed?

Thanks Firebar, I did get the windows desktop experience thing working. I still can't get the media on my web pages to play. I've been a bunk with this site, man, what a learning experience !
But thanks again. I think I'll post a new question about the page media.

I would install the media server component if you are planning on streaming the media from that server.  What format does PPT 2010 export presentations?  I haven't really played around with Office 2010 yet.

wmv format. I did get the site to play from my embedded media center. I just had to get the links all figured out correctly. That wmv export though is a little shaky, literally. I might play around with the streaming though. Thanks again for your help.
