How to Capture and Insert a Screen Recording Video into your PowerPoint Presentation Slides

The latest version of PowerPoint comes with a little-known but cool tool that let’s you record a screen capture video session on your computer and embed that as a video in a presentation slide. It’s like PowerPoint contains it’s own video recorded which can capture video and audio from any activity you might make on your computer.

Confusingly, this is *not* capturing a recording of your actual presentation (something which PowerPoint is also capable of.)

It can capture across more than one application in a single session and you can even get it to capture part of a playing YouTube video, although there are better methods of embedding a full YouTube of Vimeo video.
