How to Add Audio and Video Files to PowerPoint Slides in Java

eiceblue profile image E-iceblue Product Family ・3 min read

When slides are used for advertising campaign or product demonstration, people usually add media files (such as audio and video) to make the presentation more vivid and dynamic. In this article, I am going to show you how to insert audio and video files to your PowerPoint presentation by using Free Spire.Presentation for Java.

Add Spire.Presentation.jar as dependency

Method 1: Download Free Spire.Presentation for Java pack, unzip it and you’ll get Spire.Presentation.jar file from the “lib” folder. Import the jar file in your project as a dependency.

Method 2: If you are creating a Maven project, you can easily add the jar dependency by adding the following configurations to the pom.xml.

<repositories>
    <repository>
        <id>com.e-iceblue</id>
        <name>e-iceblue</name>
        <url>http://repo.e-iceblue.com/nexus/content/groups/public/</url>
    </repository>
</repositories>
<dependencies>
    <dependency>
        <groupId> e-iceblue </groupId>
        <artifactId>spire.presentation.free</artifactId>
        <version>2.6.1</version>
    </dependency>
</dependencies>

Example 1. Add audio to slide

import com.spire.presentation.*;
import com.spire.presentation.drawing.FillFormatType;

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.geom.Rectangle2D;

public class InsertAudio {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

        //Create a Presentation object
        Presentation presentation = new Presentation();


        //Load a sample PowerPoint document
        presentation.loadFromFile("C:\\Users\\Administrator\\Desktop\\example.pptx");

        //Add a shape to the first slide
        Rectangle2D.Double labelRect= new Rectangle2D.Double(50, 120, 120, 30);
        IAutoShape labelShape = presentation.getSlides().get(0).getShapes().appendShape(ShapeType.RECTANGLE, labelRect);
        labelShape.getLine().setFillType(FillFormatType.NONE);
        labelShape.getFill().setFillType(FillFormatType.NONE);
        labelShape.getTextFrame().setText("Double Click to Play Audio:");
        labelShape.getTextFrame().getTextRange().setFontHeight(20);
        labelShape.getTextFrame().getTextRange().setLatinFont(new TextFont("Times New Roman"));
        labelShape.getTextFrame().getTextRange().getFill().setFillType(FillFormatType.SOLID);
        labelShape.getTextFrame().getTextRange().getFill().getSolidColor().setColor(Color.BLACK);

        //Add an audio file to the slide
        Rectangle2D.Double audioRect = new Rectangle2D.Double(175, 120, 30, 30);
        IAudio audio = presentation.getSlides().get(0).getShapes().appendAudioMedia((new java.io.File("C:\\Users\\Administrator\\Desktop\\music.wav")).getAbsolutePath(), audioRect);
        audio.setPlayMode(AudioPlayMode.ON_CLICK);

        //Save to file
        presentation.saveToFile("AddAudio.pptx", FileFormat.PPTX_2013);
        presentation.dispose();
    }
}

Example 2. Add video to slide

import com.spire.presentation.*;
import com.spire.presentation.drawing.FillFormatType;

import javax.imageio.ImageIO;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.geom.Rectangle2D;
import java.awt.image.BufferedImage;
import java.io.File;

public class InsertVideo {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

        //Create a Presentation object
        Presentation presentation = new Presentation();

        //Load a sample PowerPoint file
        presentation.loadFromFile("C:\\Users\\Administrator\\Desktop\\example.pptx");

        //Add a shape to the first slide
        Rectangle2D.Double labelRect = new Rectangle2D.Double(50, 120, 120, 50);
        IAutoShape labelShape = presentation.getSlides().get(0).getShapes().appendShape(ShapeType.RECTANGLE, labelRect);
        labelShape.getLine().setFillType(FillFormatType.NONE);
        labelShape.getFill().setFillType(FillFormatType.NONE);
        labelShape.getTextFrame().setText("Play Video:");
        labelShape.getTextFrame().getTextRange().setFontHeight(20);
        labelShape.getTextFrame().getTextRange().setLatinFont(new TextFont("Times New Roman"));
        labelShape.getTextFrame().getTextRange().getFill().setFillType(FillFormatType.SOLID);
        labelShape.getTextFrame().getTextRange().getFill().getSolidColor().setColor(Color.BLACK);

        //Append a video file to the slide and set the cover image
        Rectangle2D.Double videoRect = new Rectangle2D.Double(175, 120, 400, 225);
        IVideo video = presentation.getSlides().get(0).getShapes().appendVideoMedia((new java.io.File("C:\\Users\\Administrator\\Desktop\\video.mp4")).getAbsolutePath(), videoRect);
        BufferedImage coverImage = ImageIO.read( new File("C:\\Users\\Administrator\\Desktop\\coverImage.jpg"));
        video.getPictureFill().getPicture().setEmbedImage(presentation.getImages().append(coverImage));

        //Save to file
        presentation.saveToFile("AddVideo.pptx", FileFormat.PPTX_2010);
        presentation.dispose();
    }
