Earlier today, Microsoft announced Office 365 Video, a new service of Office 365 that makes it easy to share video inside organizations. Microsoft has also just announced that Office Mix will let you publish to Office 365 Video from directly within PowerPoint.
Office Mix has always let you export a mix to video, but now, according to today’s announcement, you will be able to structure your video in PowerPoint, author and enhance it with Office Mix, host it in Office 365 Video, and share it securely within your organization without having to download or purchase additional tools or services.
So how would this work in the environment itself? According to Microsoft, you’ll be able to see a Publish to O365 Video button on the Mix tab on the PowerPoint ribbon “sson” and clicking on it will bring up the Office Mix wizard and walk you through the process. You can see what this ribbon will look like below:
From there, you just sign in to Office 365, choose a title, description, and channel for your video and then click Publish. When publish processing is done, you can click View your video to see it in the Office 365 Video portal.
