I've been using Office 2010 with Ubuntu 12.04. I would like to embed an video (.avi format) into a .pptx file in Powerpoint. It was originally a .mov file, so I used avconv to convert the .mov file to a .avi file:
avconv -i input.mov -vcodec libx264 -crf 22 ouput.avi
This works fine. But, when I try and embed output.avi into Powerpoint 2010, I get the following error:
PowerPoint cannot insert a video from the selected file. Verify the necessary codec for this media is installed, and try again.
Do you have any suggestions on how to install the necessary codecs (in Wine?) or embed the video in my PowerPoint? Thanks
