How to Embed SWF in PowerPoint

You may have tried many methods to insert a Flash movie in PowerPoint, and you may have already known that in the “Insert” options of PowerPoint, you are allowed to insert a Flash movie. I used the video inserting function on PowerPoint 2010 to embed a Flash movie. When I input a Flash video with small size (330 KB), the PowerPoint could play it fluently; but when I inserted a larger SWF file (1.3 MB), the PowerPoint couldn’t play the file and collapsed in the end. So it is not a smart choice to insert a Flash movie directly into PowerPoint.

Generally speaking, Flash movies are all SWF files. The PowerPoint can accept this kind of files but may be not stable in playing with the SWF files. If you are in need of embedding SWF in PowerPoint urgently, you can try to convert the SWF file to a standard video, and then you won’t worry about playing the file in PowerPoint. Converting SWF file to a standard video seems to be the safest way to insert Flash in PowerPoint. In order to convert SWF files to videos, you will need a professional SWF converter.
