Fortunately, the conversion on Windows7 was much simpler than the one on XP.
Only MS PowerPoint 2010 is necessary. (Windows Live Movie Maker was not needed at all!)
OS: Windows 7 (If XP, it's done in a different way)
1) Create PPT slides and add narration.
2) Save as "Windows Media Video."
3) Take a few minutes to create .wmv file. Just wait until it's done.
4) Upload .wmv file to YouTube (takes a few minutes)
Optionally, you can edit video or add background music using Windows Live Movie Maker. My point is, narration [deleted extra space] cannot be added through Live Movie Maker, so that [delete] you need to add it on PPT to create WMV file first.
- Narration volume can be adjusted by editing video menu through Live Movie Maker.
- Background music volume can be adjusted by editing music menu through Live Movie Maker.
- Note that YouTube supports the following format of video data to upload:
- The file must be less then 15 minutes for free YouTube account
It is up to you to create which format of the video file while here I would introduce you how to create .AVI file using a free screen capture tool for Windows.
1) Try downloading CamStudio: http://camstudio.org/
2) Launch CamStudio to capture a screen video
