Play Embedded Videos on Slide when Exported to Video
If you have a presentation that is exported to a video that contains embedded video on a slide that's set to play automatically after exporting the presentation to an MOV or MP4, the embedded video does not play. Any animations you've made do play but the video does not. Videos do play automatically when your watching your presentation in slideshow mode but not after exporting it to an MOV.
Videos set to play automatically do do so when exporting to video on Windows but this feature doesn't exist on the Macintosh. Thank you!
Thank you for pointing out this issue. We were able to fix this for everyone that has an Office subscription or has Office Mac 2019 installed.
I have been requesting this capability via various forums for a long time. As I understand it, audio created within PPT will be included in a video export, but external audio imported into PPT (in my case, a professional narrator and music) will not be included in a followup export. This is not an issue with Windows PPT, but remains one with the Mac version. To be clear, I DO NOT see this as a feature request, but a problem/issue that needs to be resolved! I am quite upset that after all these years, the Mac community continues to not be supported in this regard.

I have a presentation with an audio file I inserted that DOES actually play when I export to MOV but for the life of me I don't know why? I've tried inserting other M4A's and used new presentations but they DON'T play after export to MOV? Why does that one work and the others don't?
So it does export sound but it seems like there's a bug maybe?
This function has been requested for years. They indicate the project was completed in version 16.19 to no avail as indicated by the number of comments. My work around has been to make PPT presentation as usual. Open in Keynote, which we have as Mac users. Record there and then export as MOV. If you export at PPT the recording will be stripped off. Eventually, I'll get used to using Keynote to create the slides and give up on PPT completely.
I would like to be able to export the audio file when I am converting my Power Point to MOV. I would like to be able to export my Power Point Presentation and include the audio file.
To have the same option as windows version to save videos out of presentations.
