Build a video library

Follow

Creating a video library with the d!nk PowerPoint plugin is incredibly easy and only requires 2 functions that already available in PowerPoint. This in combination with the d!nk Algorithm makes a great video library on your tablet.

Start: Inserting your videos in PowerPoint

Open a PowerPoint in the required size - Read the details

Insert > Video > Video on my pc.

Note: make sure your video isn't over our upload limit of 200mb. You can resize it with free online tools - Read the details

Build a navigation with the d!nk PowerPoint Plugin

After you've inserted the videos in each slide you can start building your navigation. We will be using the rectangle tool to design our own buttons.

Insert > shapes > rectangle

Create the button and add the desired text.

Do this for all your videos and make the buttons available on all slides. You can also use a Master slide with the navigation in it.

Add links to your buttons

Linking slides using our PowerPoint Plugin is also very easy. You just link from slide to slide as you would do with a regular presentation.

More details about linking in PPT plugin can be found here.

 

Right click the button > Hyperlink  >Place in this document > slide nr.

(or select the button and hit control+k)

Do this for all the buttons. 

Some modifications

You can add some extra details such as a darker color for each "active button". So when you go to a slide 1 of your buttons is darker than the rest of your navigation, indicating that you're active on that slide.

Great! You now created a video library using the PowerPoint plugin. You can navigate from video to video.

Tip: You can also add placeholder for each video - Discover how.
