Looking back on my 20+ years' devotion to marketing business, I have collected tons of PPTs for my work and my team. I feel really proud of these honors and milestones for my career. Now I am desperate of converting some of them to videos in MPEG format for better preserving and sharing on the video-sharing websites. It is very lucky that I get to know this post for teaching me how to convert PowerPoint to MPEG in a fast way. In case you will need similar assistance in converting PowerPoint to video files, I introduce this post here for your reference.

Part 1. Know about MPEG

Information collected in Wiki indicates that the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) is a working group of authorities that was formed by ISO and IEC to set standards for audio and video compression and transmission. MPEG has standardized the compression formats and ancillary standards such as MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-3, MPEG-4, and so on. Being the most popular file formats in use, files that actually have the .MPEG file extension can be opened with many different multi-format media players, like Windows Media Player, VLC, QuickTime, iTunes, and Winamp. PowerPoint, on the other hand, can only be open by PPT programs or viewers, much less common than media players. Thus many people prefer to convert their PPTs to MPEG for sharing on websites or transmit them to their mobile devices for playing. PPTs cannot be changed to videos simply by chaning the file extention name, instead PPT to video converters are required.
