Share Your PowerPoint Presentation on YouTube

YouTube is one of the most well-known video services on the Internet which lets anyone share videos online. It uses Flash and a simple video player that starts playing videos right away.

Some people must be wondering about how to upload PowerPoint to YouTube, however, there are some common questions too. And this article will tell you how to solve these problems.

Why I failed to upload PowerPoint to YouTube?
