error message when importing videoscribe saved file to powerpoint

  • Hi

    I get this message when I try to insert VS file into powerpoint slide, i have created image and saved to file on computer then selected insert, am I doing something wrong?

  • Hi,
    What type of file are you exporting from videoscribe?
    It will probably need to be a .WMV or .MOV video file.
    You cannot import a ".scribe" file into powerpoint.
    What version of powerpoint are you using.

  • Hi

    We need to inport the file into a website, to use on our company website is this possible?

    I am importing into powerpoint to give to the website builders.

    I am on an apple mac the files end pptx, how do I find out which version I am using?

    Do I need to convert the videoscribe into WMV or MOV files and if so how do I do that?  

    Many thanks


  • I would recommend exporting the scribe as a WMV for importing into PowerPoint. To render your scribe:

    1. Click on the publish/render icon 

    2. Click on the create a video icon 

    3. Select WMV as the video type

    4. Click the tick icon.

    Once you have done this then you can import your WMV into Powerpoint.
