How to upload PowerPoint to YouTube?

YouTube accepts video files from most digital cameras, camcorders, and cell phones in the WMV, AVI, MOV, and MPEG file formats. But PowerPoint presentations are not video formats and Microsoft itself also doesn’t support the conversion. So we need third party software to complete the conversion of PowerPoint to YouTube.
When we do the conversion, we also don’t want to lose any voice, movies, animations and transitions in the original PowerPoint. The video converted should retain all the subtleties in the PowerPoint. 

Here we recommend Acoolsoft PPT to Video Pro! It is designed to help you convert PowerPoint Presentations to stunning videos. With only 3 clicks, you can convert PowerPoint presentations to video formats such as MPEG, AVI, MP4, WMV, MOV, 3GP with excellent quality.

When you decided to use this tool to convert your PowerPoint presentation to video, we recommend the following settings:

• MPEG4 (Divx, Xvid) format
• 640×480 resolution(* most updated recommendation)
• CD Audio(44.1kHz)
• 30 frames per second
