Hi,

perhaps someone can help me out on this one. I have a client who delivered a .mpg file (to be opened with Windows Media Player) to be subtitled via Power Point. I really don´t think that this is possible. How can I open such a file in PP and how can I insert subtitles? Is there a special program for this? Or is it easier than it seems?

Thanks in advance for your (always) so precious help.

Greetings from (now sunny) Lisbon.

Manuela

I never heard about it Jun 11, 2002

I just consulted the help of Powerpoint and found no answer to your question.

The only thing you can do with a *.mpg (mpeg) file is to link it with a presentation within Powerpoint to be played in a slide or so.

But opening a mpg file with Powerpoint is not possible as far as I know.

Ask your customer what he means with subtitling in Powerpoint.

I´m afraid I can´t help you better.

It can be done, but not with PowerPoint Jun 11, 2002

There are video editing programs that allow you to add subtitles. Here is a link to some resources on the Internet.

I also have never heard of PowerPoint being used in that way.
