The Screencast-O-Matic recorder supports uploading files of various formats, but it does not support Powerpoint presentations as they are different formats. However, there is a method to screen record the power point presentation. See below.
Set up powerpoint for recording your screen while running the PowerPoint presentation.
- It is recommended that you run the PowerPoint presentation in non-fullscreen mode which makes it easier to capture.
- Within the Powerpoint applications: from the ribbon (or menu bar in earlier versions) click "SLIDE SHOW".
- Then select "Set Up Slide Show".
- In the "Set Up Show" window select “Browsed by an individual (window)” and select OK to close the dialog.
Now whenever you run a presentation, it will show in a window that you can easily resize and capture. At this point, use the Screencast-O-Matic recorder to record the powerpoint slideshow in the resizable window.
