Question: How do I convert a WMA file so it works in PowerPoint?
The IT Guy says:
You should be able to insert a Windows Media Audio (WMA) file right into PowerPoint, without doing any conversion. You will insert the file as a movie, however. In PowerPoint 97 or 2000 (for Windows), from the Insert menu choose Movies and Sounds. Then choose Movie from File. Browse on your hard drive to the saved WMA file you want to insert. If you donâ€™t see the file in the directory where it is saved, you may need to change the visible file types at the bottom of the dialog window.
Microsoft has more information about this process and different options available on â€œInsert and Play Movies in PowerPoint 97/2000 Presentationsâ€.
