Add Dubsmash Videos in PowerPoint

Learn how you can insert Dubsmash videos in your PowerPoint slides.

In our Sharing Dubsmash videos tutorial, we showed how you can export your Dubsmash videos on iOS devices to your Photos folder. In this tutorial, you will learn how you can insert these videos within your PowerPoint slides.

Do note that this tutorial will look at using Dubsmash videos in PowerPoint for iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads. If you want to use Dubsmash videos in other PowerPoint versions, you will have to forward such videos to yourself as an email attachment, and then insert within PowerPoint as a regular video clip.

In this tutorial, we will use PowerPoint for iPad. Follow the steps to learn more:

  1. Launch PowerPoint on iPad. Navigate to the slide where you want to add your Dubsmash video (see Figure 1)

  2. Figure 1: Slide for video
  3. Access the Insert tab of the Ribbon, and tap the Videos button, as highlighted in red within Figure 1, above. This will open the Videos gallery that you see in Figure 2, below.

  5. Within the Videos gallery, you will find an album named Dubsmash as shown highlighted in red within Figure 2. All videos that Dubsmash exports are saved to this album. Select this album by tapping.

  6. In the Dubsmash folder, select any of the videos available by tapping (see Figure 3).

  8. You will see a larger preview of the video clip. You can play the video now by using the Play button (highlighted in red within Figure 4, below) to make sure that you have selected the correct video clip. Once you are happy with the chosen video clip, tap the Use button (highlighted in blue within Figure 4, below).

Most of the time, PowerPoint on the iPad saves and syncs your file to cloud locations such as OneDrive. PowerPoint files saved in these locations can salso be accessed from desktop computers – thus your presentation that contains a Dubsmash video clip will thus also work for you on the desktop!
