What is a PowerPoint animated background?
A PowerPoint animated background is a background which can be used in PowerPoint that is moving and animated as opposed to static such as a picture or image.
What are the advantages of using PowerPoint animated backgrounds in my presentation?
The advantage of using PowerPoint animated backgrounds in presentations is the ability to bring movement and animation into otherwise static backgrounds in PowerPoint.

However, sites that offer PowerPoint animated backgrounds offer these backgrounds as Animated .GIF files.

These files are really unusable by any professional standard as an Animated .GIF is merely a series of static images layered into a single file that rotate to create "animation".

As Animated .GIF files are indexed Bitmap images with only 256 color depth and cannot scale without distortion and pixelation, Animated. GIFS are not recommended for use in PowerPoint presentations.
What is a PowerPoint Video Background?
A PowerPoint Video Background is a video that has been created for use as a background in PowerPoint.
What are the advantages of using PowerPoint Video Backgrounds in my presentation?
The advantage of using PowerPoint Video Backgrounds in presentations is that unlike PowerPoint animated backgrounds, PowerPoint Video Backgrounds are video files which can scale dynamically to match the size of the presentation slide background.

If the creator of the PowerPoint Video Background understand how PowerPoint scales, the PowerPoint Video Background can be produced so that it can scale without distortion and without pixelation so that the video appears crisp and sharp even at high resolutions such as High-Definition (HD).

Because PowerPoint Video Backgrounds are video files they do not have the limitation of Animated .GIFs and can be created in millions of colors and at much higher frame rates to produce smooth background animation on PowerPoint slides.
What is the difference between a PowerPoint Video Background and a PowerPoint Template?
Every PowerPoint Video Background from 123PPT is created as a Windows Media Video file (.WMV).

Every PowerPoint Video Background is a professionally animated and rendered video file designed to loop seamlessly at 25 frames per second to provide a smooth and infinitely looping background on your slides behind your text and key bullet points.

A PowerPoint Template (.POT) is a PowerPoint shell containing information regarding Slide and Title Master layouts, fonts, colors, sizes, slide transitions, and general presentation information.
What is the difference between a PowerPoint Video Background and a regular PowerPoint Background?
Every PowerPoint Video Background from 123PPT is created as a Windows Media Video file (.WMV).

Every PowerPoint Video Background is a professionally animated and rendered video file designed to loop seamlessly at 25 frames per second to provide a smooth and infinitely looping background on your slides behind your text and key bullet points.

A regular PowerPoint Background is typically a graphic or other photographic image (JPG) or (GIF) that can be inserted to serve as a static background on your slide behind your text and key bullet points.
What is unique about PowerPoint Video Backgrounds from 123PPT?
123PPT invented the PowerPoint Video Background format.

Before Microsoft PowerPoint 2010, it was not possible to use Video Backgrounds in PowerPoint without The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio.

Because presenters demanded more from their presentations 123PPT created the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio and invented PowerPoint Video Backgrounds already back in 2005 allowing presenters and users of PowerPoint 2000, 2002, 2003 and 2007 to use PowerPoint Video Backgrounds in their presentations.

As we invented the standard, no one knows more about using video and Video Backgrounds in PowerPoint than 123PPT.

Our Video Backgrounds are uniquely designed for PowerPoint and work with every version of PowerPoint from PowerPoint 2000 to the latest PowerPoint 2013 release.

Each and every Video Background is unqiuely designed and optimized for use in PowerPoint to guarantee seamless play back and the highest quality balanced for system performance.
Why do the low resolution video previews have "Click here to add title" and "Click here to add subtitle" written across them?
The low resolution Video Background previews thumbnails are low resolution screen captures of the front (opening) slide of a blank presentation.

The representing Video Background has been inserted into the blank presentation in order to illustrate how the slide will look when run the PowerPoint Video Background in your actual presentation. Therefore no title or subtitle heading has been added to the blank presentation and so "Click here to add title" and "Click here to add subtitle" is displayed by PowerPoint as a reminder to add a title and subtitle for the presentation.
How quickly can I start using the PowerPoint Video Backgrounds from 123PPT?
You can download any PowerPoint Video Background from 123PPT immediately upon purchase.

After confirming your Shopping Cart, you will be transferred to PayPal, our preferred secure payment transactions host, where you can complete your payment allowing you to download your order right away.
Can you tell me more about using PowerPoint Video Backgrounds from 123PPT?
PowerPoint Video Backgrounds are files which can be inserted into PowerPoint to be used as full screen, full motion slide backgrounds.

Unlike traditional backgrounds which are typically background JPG images or simple background colors or gradients, PowerPoint Video Backgrounds provide full screen dynamic and moving backgrounds behind your text and slide content to add depth, attention and impact to your presentations.

PowerPoint Video Backgrounds from 123PPT are the only professionally designed full screen, television quality video loops available for PowerPoint.

As professional seamless video loops, each Video Background is designed and created so that it will loop seamlessly and can be set to loop infinitely across single slides or your entire presentation without interruption, pauses, or annoying breaks.
Why have I not seen many presentations with video backgrounds before?
By default PowerPoint does not let you insert a Video Background into a presentation to use as a slide background.

Prior to Microsoft PowerPoint 2010, it was not possible at all without the use of the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio. Infact even with PowerPoint 2010 and the latest PowerPoint 2013 release, the easiest and most professional way to use Video Backgrounds in PowerPoint is still with The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio.

The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio allows you to play Video Backgrounds seamlessly across slides without restarting or jumping as you move through your presentation. This unique feature is still only possible using The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio.

As many presenters are unaware of The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio and reply on the default import background options of PowerPoint, the vast majority of presentations created today are without Video Backgrounds.
Are PowerPoint Video Backgrounds available individually from 123PPT?
Absolutely. Every PowerPoint Video Background is available individually to purchase for use in your PowerPoint presentations.
Is there anything else that is unique about PowerPoint Video Backgrounds from 123PPT?
As the inventor and driving force behind innovation in PowerPoint, we don't merely provide PowerPoint Video Backgrounds to you individually. Every PowerPoint Video Background can be purchased in a unqiue color scheme to match the palette and preferred color for your presentation. In addition, every PowerPoint Video Background can be purchased in Standard (4:3) and Widescreen (16:9) aspect ratios.

For presenters needing the highest quality Video Backgrounds on high performance machines, every PowerPoint Video Background is also available in Full High-Defnition (HD), 1920 x 1080.

These unique options provide you with the maximum choice and versatility for your presentations allowing you to select any Video Background subject, color, aspect ratio and defnition.
What is Standard (4:3) aspect ratio?
Standard (4:3) aspect ratio refers to the dimensions of your screen, monitor, projector or television.

When you create a PowerPoint presentation the Slide Format of your presentation is usally created to match your screen settings. Older screens and projectors typically use what is referred to as Standard (4:3) aspect ratio. Standard (4:3) aspect ratio can refer to many monitor and display settings such as:
  • 800×600
  • 1024x768
  • 1280×960
  • 1400×1050
  • 1600×1200

While you can use both Standard (4:3) and Widescreen (16:9) aspect ratio Video Backgrounds in any presentation, it is recommended to select the aspect ratio most suited to your display settings as this will scale more optimally and proportionally with your presentation.
What is Widescreen (16:9) aspect ratio?
Widescreen (16:9) aspect ratio refers to the dimensions of your screen, monitor, projector or television.

When you create a PowerPoint presentation the Slide Format of your presentation is usally created to match your screen settings. Newer screens and projectors typically use what is referred to as Widescreen (16:9) aspect ratio. Widescreen (16:9) aspect ratio can refer to many monitor and display settings such as:
  • 1280×720
  • 1360×768
  • 1440×900
  • 1680×1050
  • 1920×1080

While you can use both Standard (4:3) and Widescreen (16:9) aspect ratio Video Backgrounds in any presentation, it is recommended to select the aspect ratio most suited to your display settings as this will scale more optimally and proportionally with your presentation.
What is High Definition (HD) screen resolution?
High Definition (HD) Video Backgrounds are Video Backgrounds which are created in high definition format and for use on higher end system platforms.

When you create a PowerPoint presentation the Slide Format of your presentation is usally created to match your screen settings. High Definition (HD) can refer to many monitor and display settings such as:
  • 1280x720 (720p)
  • 1920x1080 (Full HD)

Should I use High Definition (HD) Video Backgrounds for my PowerPoint presentation?
In the overwhelming majority of cases the answer is NO.

The reason for this is that unlike viewing or watching a movie at a low resolution on a HD monitor, PowerPoint scales your Video Background proportionally with your presentation.

As PowerPoint loads Video Backgrounds into memory, the higher the resolution the Video Background, the more memory and system resources the presentation will use.

This is very different from watching a movie from a Blu-ray disc for example, which merely streams and buffers content rather than loading the entire movie into system memory.

PowerPoint Video Backgrounds from 123PPT are created at the highest quality so that when PowerPoint scales your Video Backgrounds even to resolutions over 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), your Video Backgrounds still remain crisp and sharp.

Of course on occasion, presenters with higher performance systems require the highest definitions and Full HD PowerPoint Video Backgrounds. For these reasons, every PowerPoint Video Background is also available in Full HD and can be upgraded from standard 4:# and 16:9 aspect ratios in your Shopping Cart.
What is a PowerPoint Video Background Collection?
A PowerPoint Video Background Collection contains 12 unique Video Backgrounds upon a common theme or subject yet differ in overall texture, style and animation. For example, The Electric Effect Video Background Collection sees a collection of Video Backgrounds for PowerPoint which evoke a feeling of electricity, power, and energy.

Each PowerPoint Video Backgrounds Collection provides you with a wide range of choice and selection to bring your slides and presentations to life and engage your audiences.
Why do 123PPT provide PowerPoint Video Background Collections?
The motion artists and designers of 123PPT have created PowerPoint Video Background Collections to provide you with value saving choice, flexibility and convenience.

Rather than forcing annual subscription models with limited downloading options as other sites do, our value saving PowerPoint Video Background Collections provide great choice and variety at a minimal cost. As the only professionally designed Video Background loops for PowerPoint, each 123PPT PowerPoint Video Background Collection provides you with exceptional value for money.
What is the difference between the Free PowerPoint Video Backgrounds and Video Backgrounds which I can purchase from your site?
In the Free PowerPoint Video Backgrounds section we present a number of Free Video Backgrounds for PowerPoint and for use in licensed copies of The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio.

Because the Video Backgrounds in the free section are provided to you free of charge and without need to license or pay for use, each Video Background in the Free PowerPoint Video Backgrounds section is watermarked.

All of our commerically available Video Backgrounds in all other PowerPoint Video Background sections are not watermarked and may be purchased and downloaded for use in your PowerPoint presentations.
Are PowerPoint Video Backgrounds from 123PPT royalty free?
Yes absolutely. By purchasing a PowerPoint Video Background or PowerPoint Video Background Collection from 123PPT you purchase a royalty free license for your Video Background or for each Video Background in your PowerPoint Video Background Collection.

Your royalty free license allows you to use any individual Video Background in any PowerPoint presentation as often as you wish without the need to pay any further license or additional fee.

However, you are not permitted to re-sell or use any Video Background to produce another Video Background for any or other commercial purposes.

You may not distribute a Video Background or Video Background Collection, incorporate its content in any product or use outside of PowerPoint, or otherwise repackage or attempt to repackage, extract visual or graphic elements, sell or attempt to sell single or multiple copies of or attempt to replicate its design through use of its graphic or other visual elements to produce a product of similar likeness.

In the event of doing so 123PPT recognizes its legal right as author of the Video Background and Video Background Collection and all graphical sources images that comprise the video.

Further information can be found within the Copyright & License frequently asked questions listing regarding Animated Backgrounds Copyright.
Can I use PowerPoint Video Backgrounds with presentations that I have already created?
Yes absolutely. PowerPoint Video Backgrounds from 123PPT can be inserted and used on previously created PowerPoint presentations as well as presentations you are currently working on or will create in the future.
Do PowerPoint Video Backgrounds work with PowerPoint for Macintosh and PC?
Every PowerPoint Video Background from 123PPT is created as a Windows Media file (.WMV).

Every PowerPoint Video Background from 123PPT can be used in Windows operating systems:
  • Windows 2000
  • Windows ME
  • Windows Media Center
  • Windows XP
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 10

Windows Media files (.WMV) are not native to the Apple Mac platform and so require conversion to Apple Quicktime (.MOV) format before use in PowerPoint.
What is the difference between PowerPoint Video Backgrounds from 123PPT and Crystal Graphics PowerPlugs: Video backgrounds?
PowerPoint Video Backgrounds from 123PPT are professionally designed, full screen television quality Video Backgrounds that loop seamlessly and play at a minimum of 25 frames per second (25fps).

Every PowerPoint Video Background from 123PPT is created in two versions.
  • Standard (4:3) aspect ratio (720x576 pixels) that is dynamically scaled proportionally to fill your slide background.
  • Widescreen (16:9) aspect ratio at (720x450 pixels) that is then dynamically scaled proportionally to fill your slide background.

In addition every PowerPoint Video Background from 123PPT is also available in (HD) Full High-Definition at (1920x1080 pixels) and available in 6 different color schemes to optimally match the color palette and design of your presentation.

Crystal Graphics PowerPlugs: Video backgrounds are not designed or created by Crystal Graphics. Crystal Graphics is merely a third-party reseller of other designers work which plays at a poor 12 - 15 frames per second (12-15fps), approximately half the frame rate of PowerPoint Video Backgrounds from 123PPT.

In addition, Crystal Graphics provide their thirtd-party video backgrounds at 800x600 pixel screen resolution only restricting the ability of the Video Background to scale proportionally to your slides.

More than this, Crystal Graphics attempt to lock users into purchasing an annual subscription to access and purchase video backgrounds for their product.

At 123PPT.com we do not believe that this is fair to you as a presenter or to your budget and presentation requirements. We provide PowerPoint Video Backgrounds which can be purchased as and when you need them without any subscription obligations, that scale dynamically and proportionally to your presentation in the color you need and with the quality you require.
Can I use PowerPoint Video Backgrounds from 123PPT in the Crystal Graphics PowerPlugs: Video backgrounds Player?
Yes of course. Only remember that the Video Backgrounds themselves will run slower and more "choppy" through the Crystal Graphics PowerPlugs: Video backgrounds Player than through the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio.
Does 123PPT provide a product for playing Video Backgrounds optimally in my presentation slides?
If you are using Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 or the latest Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 then you can insert Video Backgrounds in your presentations within the need for additional software.

However, the functionality to insert and control Video Backgrounds in PowerPoint 2010 and 2013 is limited which is why presenters even of the latest PowerPoint 2012 still prefer The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio to insert and control Video Backgrounds in their PowerPoint presentations.

IF you are using PowerPoint 2000, PowerPoint 2002, PowerPoint 2003 or PowerPoint 2007, then Microsoft does not provide the ability to import or use Video Backgrounds in your presentations and the only way to use Video Backgrounds in PowerPoint is through The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio.

The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio not only allows you to embed and play full screen, full motion Video Backgrounds on your slides, but also provides you with complete control of every aspect of each video clip that you use, including play back speed, color, aspect ratio and transparency.
Can you tell me a little more about The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio™?
At 123PPT we listened carefully to presenters who voiced their concerns over Microsoft's inabilty to implement the ability to insert Video Backgrounds into presentations. In response, we created the only professional solution for presenters who wish to use Video Backgrounds in their presentations and demand professional results. In fact we're so proud of our product that we invite all of our users to compare The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio against the Crystal Graphics solution.

The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio runs at more than twice the speed, displaying your Video Backgrounds at a full 25 frames per second and unlike the market alternative, The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio actually runs inside PowerPoint so that Video Backgrounds run seamlessly, smoothly and most importantly reduce the demand and system requirements of your PC.

As Microsoft have subsequently introduced the ability to insert Video Backgrounds in the latest version of PowerPoint, we have continued to improve and extend our product so that The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio not only supasses the performance and results of the in-built functionality of PowerPoint, but continues to play Video Backgrounds seamlessly across slides rather than restarting and jumping to provide a better and more enjoyable audience experience.

Are there different versions of The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio available?
Yes. Because the needs of presenters are different so are the versions that we provide.

The Lite Edition of The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio is our entry-level solution for users who want to be able to import their own video clips, movies or files for use as Video Backgrounds or want to pruchase, download and import a limited number of professional video backgrounds from 123PPT. The Lite Edition of The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio provides users with all the functionality of the Deluxe Edition but with the limitation of being able to import up to five (5) video files for unlimited use in presentations before upgrading to the Deluxe Edition is required.

The Deluxe Edition of The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio is the ideal solution for presenters who require full flexibility. The Deluxe Edition provides you with all the functionality of the Lite Edition but with the added benefits of being able to import an unlimited number of own videos for use as Video Backgrounds in your PowerPoint presentations without any restrictions.

In addition, Lite Edition license holders can upgrade to the Deluxe Edition at any time.

Download your free 14 day Trial Edition of The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio.
In which versions of PowerPoint can I use The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio?
The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio can be used in all versions of PowerPoint 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007 as well as Office PowerPoint 2010 (32-bit) release.

The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio is fully compatible with Windows 2000, ME, XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 10.
Is there any hardware or system requirements for running The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio in my presentation?
There are many variables which can affect the running of full screen video on your PC, as example your PC's graphics card, processor speed etc.

However, each and every Video Background from 123PPT has been optimized and designed specifically for use in PowerPoint to reduce the resources required by your PC to play full screen seamless video on your slide backgrounds and as such play optimally on every PC at any resolution.

As a guide to minimum system requirements for running The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio we recommend:
  • Windows operating systems: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 10
  • PowerPoint 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007 or Office PowerPoint 2010 (32-bit)
  • Pentium III or faster processor
  • System Memory RAM: 128 MB or more
  • Graphics card Video RAM: 32 MB or more
For more information about technical requirements please view our 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio Support section.
What is the difference between The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio and Crystal Graphics PowerPlugs: Video backgrounds Player?
Primarily the main difference is performance. However, in addition to performance alone, we are aware of at least 30 differences in quality, functionality, and capability including:

  1. The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio allows you to run full screen, full motion, television quality Video Backgrounds at a minimum of 25 frames per second (25fps).

    The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio can use lower resolution Video Backgrounds and also perform equally well at resolutions over and beyond Full HD (1920 x 1080 screen pixels).

    The Crystal Graphics PowerPlugs: Video backgrounds Player allows you to play back video at 12 - 15 frames or less per second at resolutions no higher than 800 x 600 screen pixels.


  2. The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio allows you to assign indiviudal video backgrounds to each individual slide. The Crystal Graphics solution does not and only allows you to apply one video background to a single slide or your entire presentation.

For more details on the differences between The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio and the Crystal Graphics solution, please compare our product.
Will others be able to view my PowerPoint presentations with Video Backgrounds when I send my presentation to them?
Yes absolutely.

If you are using PowerPoint 2010 or the latest PowerPoint 2013 and using the limited but in-built Video Background insertion functionality then you simply need to package your presentation file (.PPT or .PPTX) with your Video Backgrounds when you distribute it to friends, family or colleagues.

If you are using PowerPoint 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007 or 2010 with The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio for PowerPoint, then you can simply use the "Pack Presentation" feature which enables you to save your enhanced presentation and transfer it onto your laptop, or to forward it to a conference organizer, send it to someone else for viewing, or burn it onto CD or DVD disc.

And what's more your presentation can run on any PC that doens't even have PowerPoint installed thanks to the free to download and free to use standalone 123PPT Presentations Player.

Please click here for more details about the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio and the 123PPT Presentations Player.
