How to add music to a PowerPoint video

Yes, it’s another tutorial on making PowerPoint videos. This time I’m showing you how to add music to a PowerPoint video!

This one follows on from last week’s How to make a PowerPoint video. Also, if you’re more of a Keynote kind of person than a PowerPoint one, take a look at my review of  how to make an awesome demo video with Keynote.

Here’s the video:

Adding music can really enhance a PowerPoint video and here’s where I show you how to do that.

The music can be added with a narration or just on its own. You can also choose whether the music plays for just one slide or the entire video. I’ll also show you how to change the volume and remove the speaker icon.

I’ve added music here, but you can add any sound file you like using the same technique, from a narration to birdsong or a even sound effect.

  1. Good tips Helen, I always move the icon out of the way too. It’s easy to forget to change On Click to Auto Play! One thing I do is compress the audio file so that when you save it as a video the file size is reduced.
    Thanks as always, enjoy your tips.
