How to Save Voice Over Powerpoint (VOPPT) to MP4

These instructions display how to take voice over Powerpoint files and convert them to MP4 video files.


Creating a File

Make sure you save your Powerpoint file twice, once with no narration (that way you can use it in class and narrate it live), and once again (with a different file name) with the narration. It is this 2nd one that we are going to convert to MP4. Once converted to MP4 you can upload it to Kaltura and place it into your class. Start by clicking the File menu button.

Rendering a Video

You will see a progress bar at the bottom of the Powerpoint window. This process can take up to 2 or 3 hours to render depending on the size of your Powerpoint, how much audio is in it and the speed of your computer. You might consider starting it at night before you go to bed. Remember to leave your computer on (don’t close a laptop).
