I have a linked MP3 file already in a PPT presentation. A friend of mine is
converting the MP3 file to WAV and I anticipate receiving it soon.

What is the method to embed?

Can't find embed anywhere.

Can't find embed anywhere.

Music in each format can be embedded in PowerPoint if you use right
trick.
To wav sound larger than 100KB$B!'(B
PowerPoint-> Tools->Options-> Advanced -> link sounds with file size
greater than ...KB. Please input 50000.
To MP3 or other formats$B!'(B
Convert your PowerPoint presentation to Flash use some third party
presentation tools, Wondershare PPT2Flash Standard(http://
www.sameshow.com/powerpoint-to-flash.html), for instance. It can help
you create Flash-based presentation with all the original effects
retained. Of course, all the sound files will be embedded in the
presentation. You can send the Flash-based presentation to your
friends and different computers.

Thanks Bill, I downl;oaded the converter, and converted it to WAV. But how do
I embed. I went to Tools-Options-General and increased the size to 100MB, (my
song is only about 11MB).

I inserted it - but it still appears to be linked.

By default WAV files are embedded into PowerPoint setting the max allowable
5000kb size does not increase your filesize in any way. See here on how to
embed your file. http://www.pptalchemy.co.uk/embed_wavs.html

The biggest file that can be embedded by "normal" insertion is 50 Mb also
make sure you change the setting BEFORE inserting the sound.

How long is your sound file to get to 100 MB? Our link that Michael mentions
explains how to embed the smaller mp3 but beware this is not without some
gotchas so read carefully. You might also want to try adding as a transition
sound (see the same link)

Mis-read His WAV is 11 MB.

The key is to set the limit before inserting it, as Michael mentioned.
