In PowerPoint 2010, when you insert media files from your hard-drive, they get embedded directly into your presentation unless you specifically choose to link them. And to make sure that it works on all computers, you can use Optimize Media Compatibility feature in the Backstage will help you ensure that your files playback on other computers as well. Now your media is embedded, just send it recipients. But what if, you receive an email saying that your attachment’s too large to send!!! Just return to Backstage and click on the new Compress Media to reduce the size of your media files. PowerPoint’ll discard your trimmed regions so that you don't waste space showing a short clip from a long movie.  The media’re then processed with some very intelligent algorithms which selectively remove data while minimizing the impact to the overall quality of the video and audio.
