    Many people would like to put DVD movies or DVD business content to PPT for presentation. No matter which kind of requirement, you need to know some knowledge about DVD to PPT. Today I want to talk more about on Mac. As we know, more and more people use Mac instead of Windows. I hope that this passage will cater to this need.
    The video formats compatible with PPT:
    AVI:
    AVI is supported on Windows and Mac. This video format can keep the video quality at max but probably with the heavier weight on file size.
    MOV (QuickTime):
    This type of video format is supported by all versions of Mac OS. While for Windows, MOV is supported up to version 3 and not supported by subsequent versions.
    MPG:
    MPEG1 is supported by both windows and Mac. But for MPEG2, it is supported on Vista only and may require a 3rd party plugin on XP or OS X.
    WMV (Windows Media Video):
    This video format is supported on Windows. On OS X, it needs the additional Flip4Mac codec to help work with.
    AVI and MOV may be the better choices as you do not need any extra codec or plug-in on Mac in order to work well with. Then for the next step, how to rip DVD to AVI or MOV on Mac? The ripping DVD tool on Mac is required now. Take Pavtube DVD Ripper for Mac as the example to show the simple steps about ripping DVD to AVI.
    Convert DVD to AVI on Mac:
    1.Install Pavtube DVD Ripper for Mac and launch it to see the intuitive interface.

    Tips:
    2.After importing DVD, select output video format AVI or MOV from the drop-down menu via hitting the black triangle button in “Format” box.
    3.Specify the output path in “Export to” box.
    4.Click “Convert” to begin encoding the required video format.
    5.Hit “Open” button to find the converted files easily.
    Tips:
    Generally the ripping software can only own the ripping or converting function, but Pavtube DVD Ripper for Mac offers the simple editing functions. See the detailed information below:
    1. You can trim the video length to get the suitable video clips and cut off the black edges around the video in “Edit” tab.
    2. Snapshot the still pictures under the preview window. Click “Camera” icon and the still picture will be saved on your PC automatically. Click the “Folder” icon beside the “Camera” icon. The picture format can be JPG, BMP and THM. Moreover, it is easy to adjust the size of the pictures. Type in the size value or choose from the optional values. All these can be configured in “Thumbnail” tab of “Preferences” window via clicking “Option” button.
    3. Set the advance parameters. In “Settings” window, it provide several changeable parameters like bit rate, frame rate, video codec and so on to get better video quality or gain small video size.
    Add videos to PPT on Mac:
    Now we have gotten the videos that are compatible with PPT. It is time for adding these video clips to PPT.
    Microsoft PowerPoint has the ability to play some video files embedded within a presentation and others only by linking to a file. If the file is not supported, it may be possible to link to the video.
    Video files can be used in PowerPoint in the following two ways:
    1. Embedding a video clip
    a. Choose Insert | Movies and Sounds | Movies from File.
    b. Choose the video file. PowerPoint places a blank black box on the screen, which can be moved and sized as appropriate. The object then becomes part of the slide show, however without the controls to stop, start, or fast forward. If When Clicked is selected, the video can be paused and restarted by clicking on the image.
    2. Hyperlinking to a video clip
    A link or action setting can also be inserted to play a video. Note that linked video clips are not part of the slide show, so make sure the file is included (i.e., on your local hard drive) when the slide show is played.
    a. Choose Insert | Hyperlink.
    b. Click the Existing File or Web Page option at the left of the dialog box, then click the Browse for File button at the right.
    c. Locate the file and click OK.
    Some aspects you should consider:
    The test after doing all is necessary. Make sure all the multimedia elements behave appropriately like size, volume control, brightness and some other elements. As we know, each video clip requires the certain players as well as sound hardware (sound card, speakers, etc.). Before you play this PPT, you must be sure that required components must be working and configured properly in case some unexpected things. Do keep in mind to backup the video clips as the media content may not display correctly and you need do it again.
    OK, after doing all the necessary things, it is time to show your PPT to others. Enjoy this experience of adding video to PPT on Mac. Hope this tutorial can help you a lot. Any more additional information will be welcome.
