Vimeo Embeds with G-Tools PowerPoint Add-in: Conversation with Jamie Garroch

Jamie GarrochJamie Garroch, CEO of YOUpresent (formerly GMARK) founded the company to provide presentation professionals with presentation software, content and training. Jamie uses a range of presentation and e-learning tools on PC and Mac from PowerPoint to Keynote, Adobe CS and iSpring for presentations and Articulate Storyline for e-learning. He also uses PowerPoint as a programming environment to create authoring automation for his company's productivity needs, custom add-ins for clients and off-the-shelf products for presentation designers.

In this conversation, Jamie discusses the Vimeo embed abilities within his G-Tools add-in for PowerPoint.

Geetesh: Tell us more about your Vimeo embed feature that's part of your G-Tools add-in?

Jamie: PowerPoint 2013 and 2010 have built in support for a media player that can stream YouTube videos from the Internet during a presentation. However, it's not obvious from the feature, which can be found in the Ribbon under Insert | Video | Online Video | From a Video Embed Code, that the embed code option only supports YouTube (refer to Microsoft Requirements for using the PowerPoint YouTube feature).



Vimeo embed codes just get rejected. The Vimeo embed feature in G-Tools provides an answer for users wanting to stream Vimeo videos within their slide shows by taking your embed code and creating a flash video player on your slide. Flash players can't run in the normal view so playback, bookmarks and animation aren't possible but it does allow you to play Vimeo videos in your slide show.



Geetesh: What motivated you to create this extra feature for Vimeo embeds -- also what are your favorite features in G-Tools??

Jamie:While it's possible to manually insert a Flash object into a slide and set it up to support Vimeo videos, it's technically challenging. So we thought it would be nice to build a Vimeo video feature into our G-Tools add-in. It supports both the older and new versions of the Vimeo embed codes and sets up the Flash player for you based on your selected options.

Aside from this new feature, G-Tools has around 30 tools for presentation designers with our favorites being Add Shape to Group, Text-To-Outline and the shape Adjustment Painter as they are great time savers for presentation designers using PowerPoint on a frequent basis. G-Tools is also available at a huge discount for a limited period in exchange for a tweet!
