Insert SWF into PowerPoint 2010?

May 24, 2010 9:55 AM

When I wanted to insert a SWF into a PowerPoint 2007 presentation, I would use the More Controls dialog in PowerPoint's Developer tab to insert a Shockwave/Flash object. But in PowerPoint 2010, that control is missing from the dialog. Where did it go? When I click the Register Custom DLL, there's no obvious file to choose, either.


Has anyone else run into this? I'm not looking for a way to convert a SWF into a video that can be embedded or using a 3rd-party plug-in or anything like that. I know how to do those things. I'm specifically looking to insert a SWF using only what's built into PowerPoint and Flash, so if anyone has info on it, please let me know!

    I have installed PowerPoint 2010 beta release on my machine. I was able to attach a SWF file to the presentation successfully. All options to insert a video are located on the Insert tab, in the Media group. Please refer to the link below on how to insert a flash movie to the presentation. r-presentation-HA010374729.aspx?CTT=5&origin=HA010338310


    Also Microsoft have provided support for Flash in PowerPoint 2010. To find the list of supported formats please visit the following link: -video-file-formats-in-powerpoint-2010-HA010336709.aspx?CTT=1

    As you mentioned in your message, Flash is not supported for 64 bit environment. And I was able to successfully import the flash movie on a 32 bit machine. At the same time I am eagerly waiting for flash to be ported on to a 64 bit platform.
