64 Bit Codec for PowerPoint
If you need a 64 bit Codec for PowerPoint then here we will show some alternatives that may make possible to add videos into your PowerPoint presentations running on a Windows 64 bit machine.
First, you will need to download a codec package for Windows 64 bit. One of the codec packages that we tested with success was those from Shark007.net, you can download codecs for 32bits or 64bits.

Notice that during the installation process, you will be asked to install a bar in your web browser. If you don’t want these bars (actually are not needed if you want just the codect) then you can uncheck the options before installing the software. By installing the free codec for PowerPoint you can then insert and play MP4 and other video and multimedia format in your PowerPoint slides. For example, we have tested this inserting a cliplet from Microsoft Research project into one of our PowerPoint presentations.
Here is an example of the video player in PowerPoint 2010.
How to install codec to play MP4 in PowerPoint presentations
The codecs above supports MKV playback in x64 Media Center on all versions of Windows and PowerPoint. You can also use these codecs to play your favorite videos in Windows Media Center. To setup FLAC audio playback in Windows Media Center you must initially select the x64 WMP as the default player. For Windows 7 Media Center users, this can be set back to the 32bit afterwards.
Concerning S/PDIF, digital, optical and HDMI: The administrator and a regular user are different users and each must setup the Audio TAB. At no time should anyone have a need to click the leftside of the Audio TAB manually; it uses system detection.
The free stuff from Shark pack does that other packs cannot do:
- Full color thumbnails including FLV’s and 10bit MKV’s (also allows users to select at what point by percentage to grab the thumbnail)
- Enable the Preview Pane for ALL newly enabled filetypes such as MKV and FLV.
