Embedding a MediaSpace video in PowerPoint 2007

Embedding a MediaSpace video in PowerPoint 2007

This hands-on guide will help you play a video that has been uploaded to MediaSpace inside a PowerPoint presentation. MediaSpace is a web storage area that can be accessed through D2L. Once you have uploaded your video, MediaSpace generates a small piece of text, also known as embed code. You can copy this embed code and use it to display a video in PowerPoint.

Before you begin:

· You must have an account setup in MediaSpace.

If you do not have an account, please contact Amy Mangrich (amangric@uwm.edu)

· You must have a video already uploaded to MediaSpace.

Please see the helpsheet on “Uploading your video to MediaSpace”
