How to View PPS with QuickTime Player on Mac

PPS is just another default format in PowerPoint which is opened directly as slide show mode after double clicking. While in PPT format, you need to click F5 to view the PowerPoint presentation.

The benefits of saving PowerPoint as PPS format are:

1. Saving time

2. Good for formal presentation conference

3. Prevent from modification

This guide contains two parts:

1. Converting PPS to MOV video form viewing on Mac

2. Save PPS as PPT format for editing

Part I: Convert PPS to MOV

Load PowerPoint files.

Free download and install Leawo PPT to Video Converter on your computer. Click the Add button to import the PowerPoint files you want to convert to video. Batch conversion is available with no number limit.

Select output video format.

Be default the PowerPoint is created in 4:3 aspect ratio, if it doesn’t match the output video size there will be black margin. So click Customize and uncheck Keep the aspect ratio of slides to stretch the slide and remove the black margin. Click As Default so you don’t need to set again in the future.

Part II: Save PPS as PPT
