How to embed an MP3 file into your Microsoft PowerPoint presentation? If you are the kind of person who depends heavily on MS PowerPoint presentation then this tip will really helpful. If you want to embed a sound file in presentation you need to depend of WAV file. The problem with WAV file is that it is bigger in size and will make your presentation file much bigger.
If you can embed an mp3 file in your presentation then that will help you in keeping the file size smaller. You can easily achieve this with the help of Microsoft Power point MP3 AddIn developed by TopByteLabs.

MP3 AddIn will not convert the MP3 file into WAVformat. MP3 AddIn internally adds a header and changes the file name of the MP3 file and makes PowerPoint “think” it is dealing with a WAV file. So the advantage is that you are still using the mp3 file and the file size will be minimal. Since the MP3 file is embedded you don’t have to keep the separate MP3 files with your presentation.
After installation you can select insert sound file from “Insert” menu options. Select and MP3 file and the application will prompt you to configure the play event. The audio file can either start automatically or on click.
