Our next option within the Insert Online Video series is inserting video from OneDrive.

Remember that you will have to first sign in with your Microsoft account.

Recent versions of PowerPoint accept more video file formats than previous versions and can do a lot more with videos, including trimming of video clips. However, they also embed all inserted video clips by default, and this can result in huge presentations that contain huge video files! This ultimately occupies oodles of disk space and may also make PowerPoint work a wee bit slower. To tackle this problem, you can explore the media compression abilities built right inside PowerPoint. You no longer need any third-party media compression tool since PowerPoint’s native Media Compression options make this task very easy indeed.

Have you ever created a new presentation in PowerPoint and then closed it without saving it for even once? This scenario seems to be little strange and impossible since even if you accidentally close your presentation, PowerPoint prompts you whether you want to save your presentation. Yet, you can be in a similar scenario if you lose all your file changes to a system or PowerPoint crash. Fortunately, there are chances that your unsaved presentation is safe in some state! Most of the time, PowerPoint will salvage your file and offer to open it for you the next time you launch the program. Alternatively, even if you don’t see any files being offered for recovery, you can set the process in action manually.

When you insert video clips in your presentations, you may find that the video clip inserted may be too long. Or maybe you just need to show part of the video clip, rather than wasting your audience’s time showing them the entire clip. Yes, you can use the Player Controls bar to scrub and play the clip from exactly where you want it to begin. However, scrubbing a clip in front of an audience can appear unprofessional. Another way is to trim the video clip outside PowerPoint in a dedicated video program. You have one more option, and that is to use the Trim Video option within PowerPoint to get the results.

Making a chart look different translates to so much involvement. That’s because each chart has almost 10 or more elements that contribute to its appearance. Of course, you can format all these 10 elements individually, and end up spending some quality time exploring nuances that end up with some amazing and distinctive results. But what if you want the same format applied to another chart? The same format will be difficult to apply to any other chart because you will have to remember all the attributes you applied in the first one—not to speak about the time it will take to create a coordinated chart.
