Hi Team,

I am getting error while doing ppt.Slides[0].Shapes.AppendVideoMedia(myfileBloburl, new RectangleF(505,253,240,140)); And the error is as below:
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect. : 'C:\\<solutionpath>\\<myfileBloburl>'


Thanks in advance for your support.
Here is my code.

string blobFileUrl = bloburl (Eg: http://dummyrul.com//dummyFolder//dummyVideo.mp4)

Presentation ppt = new Presentation();
ppt.LoadFromStream(streamUrl, FileFormat.Pptx2013);
ISlide slide = ppt.Slides[0];
ppt.Slides[0].Shapes.AppendVideoMedia(blobFileUrl, new RectangleF(505,253,240,140));

- Here, when calling .AppendVideoMedia method, i'm getting error as 'The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect. : 'C:\\<solutionpath>\\<destinationPath>'

Hello,

Thanks for your inquiry.
Sorry that our Spire.Presentation supports appending local video files, but does not support appending online video files.
Please download your video file first, and then use our Spire.Presentation to append it to the PPT file, like the code below.
Code: Select all
            string blobFileUrl = "http://dummyrul.com//dummyFolder//dummyVideo.mp4";
            string localPath = "video.mp4";
            WebClient webClient = new WebClient();
            webClient.DownloadFile(blobFileUrl, localPath);
            Presentation ppt = new Presentation();
            ppt.LoadFromStream(streamUrl, FileFormat.Pptx2013);
            ISlide slide = ppt.Slides[0];
            ppt.Slides[0].Shapes.AppendVideoMedia(localPath, new RectangleF(505, 253, 240, 140));
            ppt.SaveToFile("result.pptx",FileFormat.Pptx2013);


Sincerely,
Brian
