I need to create reports in PowerPoint (PPT) using Matlab.
I have a video in AVI format and I would like to add it in the report (PPT) created.
I can see that it is possible to add pictures with limited formats, such as .bmp .emf .eps .gif .jpeg .jpg .png .tif.
However, I cant find anything about to add video format, such as mp4, avi, wmv etc.
Is it possible to do this using Matlab? Could you help me with any solution?

Hi Fabio,
Currently, the PPT API doesn't support programmatically adding a video file to a slide.
This is something the development team is aware of and is considering to support in an upcoming release.

Hi Rahul,
Is there another way to do this using Matlab?
I see some ideas using activeX, but I can not find more details about it.
