How to convert PPT to AVI with Xilisoft PowerPoint to Video Converter How to convert PPT to AVI with Xilisoft PowerPoint to Video Converter

As you know, PowerPoint is a great application for creating presentations (with the PPT filename extension) best suited for introducing company products, plans or ideas. PPT files are widely-used for storing both business and personal-themed presentations. But, even though this type of file is rather popular, it is not supported by as many applications as you might think. This can prove to be quite a big problem, especially if you want to present your PPT file on another computer that doesn't have the required program to open this type of file installed. A simple solution to overcome this obstacle is simply turn your PowerPoint presentations into one of the most widely-accepted types of video file, the AVI format.

There are many applications available on the Internet that can help you convert PPT files to AVI videos, but for demonstrating the process I have chosen  Xilisoft PowerPoint to Video Converter Free 1.0 (Freeware) by Xilisoft Corporation. This tool is quite highly ranked for a freeware program and comes with a simple and intuitive interface.

There is also a paid version of this application, the "Pro" version ($49.95), that will bring some extra features such as batch conversion, the possibility to add music files, create HD videos, and more.
