Video in presentations has been something I have always embraced as a design tool. Fortunately, my design background includes lots of video production. So the many of the nuances of video files – and the finicky needs of Windows and PowerPoint (especially in legacy versions) – did not leave me with too many problems that could not be resolved. Today, video use is easier (thanks Windows 10 for supporting .MP4!), but it is still good for advanced users to know video format basics.

TechSmith (makers of Camtasia and SnagIt) recently put this tutorial online about video frame rates, which is a technical topic. It explains the concepts easily with video examples and feel it is a good resource to share. Check it out here.
