Solution-Why I can’t Insert MTS videos to PowerPoint (2016)

Fail to embed MTS videos into PowerPoint 2016/2013/2010/2007/2003/2000 for playback? If so, simply follow this tutorial to learn how to insert MTS videos into PowerPoint.

“I’m planning on putting a MTS video on my Powerpoint. I don’t know which format to convert it to though, in order to make MTS effectively working on the Powerpoint.. help? Thank you <3″

Powerpoint will play any of the video formats supported by Windows Media Player. While, MTS is not in the supported formats list of all PowerPoint versions (including PowerPoint PPT 2016, 2010, 2003, 2007 or lower version). If you want to insert MTS video into PowerPoint for presentation, you’ll need to convert MTS to AVI or WMV and then add the converted video to PPT for playing.

A lot of programs online can help you achieve the goal. What I used is Brorsoft MTS Converter which can help me freely encode MTS format to any format I need including AVI. WMV, MOV, MTS, H.265 MP4 .etc. It also features basic editing features such as trimming, merging, cropping, watermarking, and audio replacing facility. If you are a Mac user, pls turn to Brorsoft MTS Converter for Mac. Now, download the software on computer and follow the guide below to start conversion.

How to Add MTS videos into PowerPoint

Step 1. Run MTS Converter for PPT, drag and drop source .mts/.m2ts file(s) to the software. Or you can click “Add” button to import the files.

Step 2. Click Format bar and choose your desired format. To embed MTS to PowerPoint, you can choose WMV or AVI format from Common Video profile list.

Step 3. If you want to edit your MTS movies before transcoding, you can click the “Edit” or button to open the Video Edit window. Here you can trim, crop, adjust video effect, add watermark and clip, etc. are provided. All the editing can be real-time previewed so as to ensure the video quality and effect.

Step 4. Tap “Convert” to start MTS to PowerPoint conversion. After the conversion, you will get the desired videos under “Open” panel.

Additional Tips

Create a folder and put both your converted video and your PowerPoint presentation in this folder. Then open the PowerPoint in this folder to insert the converted video file.

For PowerPoint 2007 and higher, select Insert tab from ribbon, and click Movie and select the converted file to insert into PowerPoint for playback.

For PowerPoint 2003 and lower, from menu, select Insert -> Movies and Sounds -> Movie from File…, and select the converted file to insert into PowerPoint.
