I recorded a go-to-meeting in wmv format.  I would like to take several of the still slides of the video and convert it to PPT files.  Does anyone know of a software program that will do that?  Thank you -

Here's a product:

Depending on how many stills you want to add, you might want to consider taking screenshots of the video stills and inserting them as images into a powerpoint.

Oops, you're right.  I'm not seeing anything that lets you do that.

Despite the wrong link the suggestion to take screenshots and insert them as images into the ppt is probably the simplest solution.

Btw, both of those articles I referenced above were written before W7 was released, so neither mentioned the Snipping Tool, which is now part of W7 (in Accessories). When you run the Snipping Tool, it gives you this:
Snipping ToolYou then drag the mouse around any area you want to capture and when you release the mouse it puts the captured area in a window and then you can save it to a GIF, JPG, MHT, or PNG file. For posting at EE, I like JPG and PNG. Regards, Joe

After answering your question about how to take screenshots, I went back and read your original question and have an alternative suggestion for you (other than screenshots).

VLC is an excellent (FREE!) product that I've been using for many years:
http://www.videolan.org/

It plays WMV files and has a "Take a Snapshot" feature. Here's a screenshot showing the "Take a Snapshot" menu pick while VLC is playing a WMV file:
VLC take snapshotSo all you have to do is pause the video where you want to take the snapshot and then do [Video>Take a Snapshot], or simply Shift-s, which is the hotkey for it. It will automatically take a snapshot of the paused frame and put it in a PNG file with a file name like [vlcsnap-2013-07-01-18h33m07s210.png]. Then simply do an Insert>Picture in PowerPoint. Regards, Joe
