A video makes your PowerPoint Presentation more attractive and interesting. Normally, it is easy to insert a video into PPT. Just click "Insert" tab of the ribbon, on the "Media" panel, choose the arrow under "Video", and then choose the appropriate command for inserting your file. But have you ever tried to embed Blu-ray movie clips to your presentation? To embed Blu-ray in PowerPoint means inserting Blu-ray clips physically into PowerPoint so that it can play within the presentation. Sounds cool? Right?
However, inserting Blu-ray clips into PowerPoint will always end in failure, since PowerPoint is not compatible with Blu-ray and it only accepts few video formats including ASF, AVI, MPEG, and WMV. What is the best way to insert Blu-ray clips into PowerPoint Presentation? Now I’d like to show my opinions so as to solve this problem.
Part 1: How to Convert Blu-ray Movie Clips for PowerPoint?
In order to insert the Blu-ray movie to PowerPoint, you can convert Blu-ray to PowerPoint supported video formats first and then insert the converted videos to your presentation.
To finish this task, you can use Pavtube BDMagic (including Windows 10). It lets you rip Blu-ray to all popular video formats and even extract audio from Blu-ray movies. Besides, it also gives you more options and greater control over the video through advanced settings and the built-in video editor allows you to trim, crop, rotate video, add watermarks, etc. to get the very part and effect you want.
If you want to insert movie clips from Blu-ray to PowerPoint on Mac, try the equivalent Mac version – Pavtube BDMagic for Mac, which is compatible with macOS High Sierra, macOS Sierra, Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan, Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, etc.

With the converted Blu-ray video file on your computer, you can embed it into your PowerPoint Presentation by following the steps below (Embedding Video from a File):

Step 6: Find the video you want to add.
Use the file explorer to browse for the video file that you want to add. There are a few things to keep in mind when looking for your video file:
a. Different versions of PowerPoint support different sets of video formats. 2016 supports the most types of files, including MP4 and MKV, while 2010 supports the least (just MPG, WMV, ASF, and AVI).
b. Consider avoiding the AVI format, as these often require additional codecs that make playback difficult. See Convert AVI to MP4 for detailed instructions.
Step 7: Wait while the video is added to your presentation.
The time this takes will vary depending on the size of the video. The progress will be displayed at the bottom of the screen.
Step 8: Click the “Playback” tab.
This will allow you to adjust playback settings for the video that you’ve added. If you don’t see the tab, make sure the video has been selected.
Step 9: Use the “Start” drop-down menu to select how the video will start playing.
By default, the video will need be clicked in order for the video to start playing. If you select “Automatically,” the video will start as soon as the slide opens. You can have the video loop or rewind automatically by checking the appropriate boxes.
Step 10: Resize the video by dragging the corners.
You can make the video different sizes by dragging the corners. You can click and drag the video to reposition it on the slide.
Step 11: Save your presentation with your embedded video.
Your video is embedded in the presentation, which includes the video inside of the PowerPoint file. You won’t need to worry about sending the video along with the presentation, since it’s packed into the presentation itself. This means that your presentation file size will increase to include the full video file.
There is no need to do anything special to save the presentation with the embedded file. Just select “Save” from the File tab and save your presentation like you normally would.
