Hi

I'm trying to insert/embed a remotely hosted video into a presentation.

When trying it like this:
Code: Select all
slide.Shapes.AppendVideoMedia(pathToVideo, rect);


I get an exception:
URI-Format not supported.
(translated from german... maybe its a bit off)

When trying it like this:
Code: Select all
slide.Shapes.InsertVideoMedia(index, pathToVideo, rect);


There is no exception but powerpoint crashes when navigating to the slide with the video.

What is the correct way to embed a remotely hosted video?

Thanks in advance

Hello,

Thanks for your inquiry.
Please download the Spire.Presentation Pack Version:3.8 and use below code to embed a remotely hosted video. If there is still a problem, please provide your video path for further investigation.
Code: Select all
slide.Shapes.AppendVideoMedia(pathToVideo,rect,false);
