[Video] Q&A – Why does music in my online PowerPoint movie presentation stop after just one slide?

This is in response to a viewer's question to an earlier video I posted on YouTube about "How To Make Video With PowerPoint."


The problem: When exporting a PowerPoint presentation to a movie format, a music file embedded in one of the slides stops playing as soon as the user advances to the next slide.  How do you set it up so that the music file continues playing throughout the remaining PowerPoint slides?

 Answer:  You can't do it using the built-in movie exporting function in PowerPoint.  (At least not as of PowerPoint 2010.)  In the video above, I explain why that is.  But, I'll also show how you can accomplish the same thing using video screen capture software.
