PowerPoint Tutorial: How To Play Video Over Multiple Slides

  • Arrange the slides with your content in sequence, and leave the same space for the video placeholder in each of them.
  • Add your video in the first slide of this sequence and make the necessary adjustments.
  • Now select your video and click on the Animations ribbon, and go to Animation Pane
  • In the animations tab, arrange your video w.r.t the other elements on the slides (before or after the text, starting point etc.)
  • If your video has a ‘pause’ symbol next to it; select the video and click play. Stop the video and notice that the symbol in the animation pane will change to a ‘play icon. If this doesn’t work, set the video to start automatically.
  • Click on the drop-down arrow next to the video in the animations pane, and select effect options.
  • In the effect tab, now you can see the Stop Playing section. By default, ‘after current slide’ will be selected.
  • Change this option to ‘after’, and select the number of slides you want the video to play over.
  • Save the settings and check the slide show.
