How to add Blu-ray files into a PowerPoint 2016 Presentation?
PowerPoint 2016 supports the playback of video with multiple audio tracks. It also supports closed captions and subtitles that are embedded in video files. You can use the playback options in PowerPoint to control how and when a video appears in your presentation. You can play a video in full screen mode or resize it to dimensions that you specify. You can also control the volume, play the video repeatedly (in a loop), and show the media controls. So, nowadays, it is popular to embed video to PowerPoint presentation, which can make PowerPoint presentation much more entertaining and informative to its viewers.
However, I'm trying to capture a short clip from Blu-ray's video so I can embed it as one of the slides on a Power Point presentation at work. The file size needs to be reasonable and the Power Point presentation will be connected to a high definition projector. Any fairly easy solution?
Well, PowerPoint only inserts few video formats including ASF, AVI, MPEG, and WMV. Since most of commercial Blu-rays you purchase are copy protected, ripping a disc to a video that works with PowerPoint slide is not always an easy task. You'll have to decrypt the restriction on disc and extract the movie contents from it and then transcode to PowerPoint compatible format.
The following guide will show you how to convert Blu-ray to PowerPoint 2016 supported format and how to successfully insert and embed Blu-ray in PowerPoint.
First download and install Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper

Step 3. Begin Blu-ray to PowerPoint format conversion
Click "Convert" to start the conversion. The conversion process is displayed in the progress bar. The complete process could take a while depending on the number of files that you are converting and the speed of your computer and Blu-ray drive.

In PowerPoint 2010 and later, you can link or embed a video from your PC directly into your presentation.
-Embedded videos are convenient, but increase the size of your presentation.
-Linked videos keep your presentation's size smaller, but links can break. To prevent possible problems with broken links, it's a good idea to copy the videos into the same folder as your presentation, and link to them there.
