I have few slides sent by my professor. In those slides, each slide is embeded with an audio file. I want to view them as a video file.

In Microsoft Office PowerPoint for Windows, there is an option in export as to convert it to .mp4 format. What it does is make the slide as the image and puts the recorded voice as the audio file. And the output is a .mp4 file.

Is this type of export possible on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. I have LibreOffice Impress in which under export as options, there is only a.pdf format option.

  • Save it as PDF. Using ffmpeg, convert each page to an image. Then again using ffmpeg, combine all images to form a video. If you use this often, write a script to do this. Let me know if you need help in doing so. – Severus Tux Jun 23 '20 at 11:48

    @SeverusTux but what about the voice recordings? – Abhay Patil Jun 23 '20 at 12:39

I use a workaround with the screen recording application - SimpleScreenRecorder

  • start your presentation in the full screen mode
  • start recording
  • stop recording when it's done

It will allow you to record the presentation with animation/video in a mp4-file. But unfortunately I didn't manage to record the sound.
