Why do I need the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio?
The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio is the only application that allows you to insert, control and play video backgrounds in full screen and full motion behind your PowerPoint presentation slide content in Microsoft Office PowerPoint.

PowerPoint only allows you to insert static photos, images or use a solid color background behind your text and slide content in PowerPoint creating a very static, dull and traditional presentation.

The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio transforms the way you make presentations and helps you meet and exceed your audience expectations by allowing you to insert full screen full motion video files that play behind your slide content and transform static slides into a television "tv-style" appearance. In addition to providing you with the ability to insert video backgrounds behind your PowerPoint slide content, the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio also provides you with a wide range of powerful yet easy to use functions and features that allow you to control the aspect ratio of your video backgrounds, change their color in real-time, adjust their opacity and transparency levels as well as control their play back speed.
Will the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio run on my computer?
The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio is designed to run on PC computers, laptops and workstations running Windows XP (Service Pack 3), Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 10 operating systems.

In addition to running the Windows operating system, the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio requires PowerPoint 2000, PowerPoint 2002, PowerPoint 2003, PowerPoint 2007 or PowerPoint 2010 to be installed in order to access and operate the application.
Will the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio run on my Apple Macintosh computer?
The 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio is not available for the Apple Macintosh platform or Mac OS X operating systems. In order to run the 123PPT Video Backbrounds Studio on an Apple Macintosh, iMac, MacBook, MacBook Air, or Mac Pro machine, a PC emulator should be run on your Machintosh machine.
How do I download the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio Trial Edition?

Until you adjust and reduce your browser's Privacy Settings to allow acceptance of session cookies you will not be able to download the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio.
I have installed the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio Trial Edition but cannot find the application when I start Poweroint. Why?
If you have downloaded and installed the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio you must restart your computer at the end of the installation prompt to allow all setup files to be completed and drivers to be loaded.

On restarting your machine and opening PowerPoint you are able to gain access to the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio. Dependent upon your installed version of PowerPoint, the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio will appear to you as illustrated in our Screenshots section.

If you are unable to see the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio in the ribbon section (PowerPoint 2007, PowerPoint 2010), or see the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio Toolbar (PowerPoint 2000, PowerPoint 2002, PowerPoint 2003) then your installation may not be correctly setup and Windows Registry Settings need to be updated. To correct your Windows Registry Settings simply close PowerPoint and launch the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Troubleshooter which can be located at:

Windows Start > All Programs > 123PPT > 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio > Troubleshooter

Running the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Troubleshooter will attempt to diagnose, repair and correct any errors in your installation or Windows Registry Settings and allow you to access and run your application correctly.
When I insert a video background on a slide it only shows a still image. Why is that?
When you use either the Insert Wizard or Edit Slide Video functions to add and insert a video background onto your PowerPoint slide, the first frame of the video is displayed as a static image behind your content to allow you to continue to work on your slides and presentation content in Normal View.

If when adding your video background to your presentation in Normal View your video background was continually playing, your video backgrounds would become distracting and make writing and adding slide content unnecessarily difficult. For these reasons, your video backgrounds only play when you play your presentation and not while you are authoring your presentation and presentation content.
How can I play my presentation with video backgrounds?
As you know PowerPoint does not allow you to add or play video backgrounds to PowerPoint slides. For these reasons we created the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio.

When you install the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio another module called 123PPT Play & Share is also installed. 123PPT Play & Share provides you with play back options as well as distribution options such as burn to CD-Rom, DVD and Blu-ray discs. When playing back your presentation with video backgrounds on the same machine where you have installed the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio you may use either of the 2 play back options found in the 123PPT Play & Share module to Play From Beginning, or to Play Your Presentation From Current Slide.
Why do the video backgrounds not play when I enter Slide Show View or press the (F5) key?
PowerPoint alone does not allow you to add or play video backgrounds to PowerPoint presentations. For these reasons we created the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio. Selecting PowerPoint's built-in play back function, Slide Show View, or pressing F5 only allows PowerPoint to play your presentation as PowerPoint can and is able to display presentations. With static backgrounds.

To play your PowerPoint presentation with video backgrounds you should use either of the 2 play back options provided in the 123PPT Play & Share module to Play From Beginning, or to Play Your Presentation From Current Slide.

If you wish to play your PowerPoint presentations with video backgrounds on other computers where you do not have the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio installed you can do so by installing the free 123PPT Presentations Player which is a free standalone player that allows you to play any PowerPoint presentation with video backgrounds on any PC computer without need to license or purchase additional licenses of the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio.
Why can I not import my own video movies, clips and files in the Trial Edition?
The Free 14-day Trial Edition of the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio allows you to experience the power and abilities of using video backgrounds in your PowerPoint presentations.

Bundled with five (5) free professional video backgrounds from 123PPT in both Standard (4:3) and Widescreen (16:9) formats, the free Trial Edition of the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio allows you to create new, or update and transform existing PowerPoint presentations into fluid, non-static television "tv-style" experiences for your audiences.

As a free to use version of our software, the free Trial Edition of the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio is offered to you with limitations during its use and operating trial period.
  • The Free 14-day Trial Edition of the 123PPT Video Backgrounds Studio does not allow you to import additional video files for use as video backgrounds in your PowerPoint presentations.
  • You may only select from and use any or all of the five (5) free professional video backgrounds provided by 123PPT that were and bundled with your download in your presentations.
