Many a time you find yourself watching a video lecture to study for exams or meeting video of a presentation someone gave at work. You really want to go through the slides carefully again, and perhaps make notes or prepare your own presentation material.
But here’s the problem: all you have is the video! ONLY the video! You can go ahead and take snapshots with desktop snapshot tools or a browser plugin. But that is really laborious. You really wish there was an easier way to do that.
Let’s look a bit deeper into this problem. Reflecting on this, we observe that learning from videos is really tough. Why?
- Videos are often too long and tiring to get through.
- Making notes, revising is all very hard. You can’t make notes on top of a video.
- Jumping to a moment takes a lot of to and fro search.
- and finally, videos consume a lot of space on disk.
What if you could directly get back the original PDF or PPT from the video? That is exactly what you want! Converting the video presentation, say in MP4 format, back to PPT or PDF would give you a lot of power. You can learn faster, you can even print them and study without your computer. Perhaps you don’t like reading from the screen, so printed documents are a boon.
In some cases, you don’t just want the images, you want the spoken words too. There is a lot said outside the slides, and that can be helpful too.
Vizle: from video presentations to PPT or PDF
Here’s the unique solution we’ve build - Vizle. Vizle captures the key moments from your presentation video, along with the speaker’s notes and generates a PPT or PDF file. The PPT or the PDF file contains those key moments as images, together with spoken text.
Now, as we said earlier: you can read, skim and even print the video if you like.
There are a couple of things that Vizle needs to get right here.
Of course, capturing the key moments is the key! You don’t want to lose any slides, nor do you want to have repeated slides with the same content. Vizle does it pretty well and automatically.
How do you use Use Vizle ?
Now, you have a presentation and want to convert video presentations to PDF or PPT-like slides format. How do you use Vizle to do that?
Simply enter the URL of your video (from Youtube or Google drive) and click convert. Within a minute, you will get both the slides and the PDF for your video.
How does it work?
Vizle uses some smart algorithms to provide you key snapshots from your video, together with the spoken transcript, side-by-side. It makes sure you get all the required snapshots and no duplicates.
If you simply want the transcript, with a few images, that is also possible.
That’s it! So, use the Vizle web app to convert your presentation’s video clip to PPTX and let us know how did it go.
