Anyone who has used the Prezi platform would know that creating a Prezi and uploading it to Prezi.com is easy enough, however when it comes to converting it to a YouTube video, there seems to be no native method of doing so. While you can convert PowerPoint to video formats using a native PowerPoint feature, the same cannot be said for the Prezi application. However, you can convert Prezi to YouTube by using a workaround.
Capture Prezi With A Screen Recording Tool
As Prezis are zooming presentations, you can neatly capture your presentation using a screen capture tool. There are many handy screencast tools for various platforms that can be used across various types of operating systems for this job. Furthermore, you can even add a voice over to narrate the Prezi presentation, as you record it. You can use many useful screencast tools for this purpose including; Camtasia Studio, Ezvid, Best Free Screen Capturer, Screenr or CamStudio. As almost every screen capture tool provides the option to capture the proceedings from a specific window, you can launch your Prezi, position the screen capturing tool to record your Prezi’s window and begin going through each section to record the presentation. As mentioned earlier, you can also use a voice over to further enhance your presentation.
Convert Prezi To Video Format
Once your Prezi presentation has been recorded, you can use the native option within your screen recording tool to convert the captured screencast to a desired video format.
Upload Recorded Prezi Presentation To YouTube
Once the Prezi has been converted to video format, you can upload it to YouTube. If your screen recording tool has a native option to directly upload recorded screencasts to YouTube, you can even skip step 2. Some screencast tools like Ezvid allow directly uploading recorded screencasts to YouTube, which can save the time to render your files for conversion to video format.
