Save ppt windows / Mac


I have a problem with VideoFrame. So if I save my *.ppt with Microsoft Powerpoint 2003 SP3 (Windows), everthing is working fine, all piturers are found and all my videos are found. (code)

But if I save my *.ppt with Microsoft Powerpoint 2008 for Mac Version 12.01 (MAC), no VideoFrames are detected, they will be deteced as a PictuerFrame. If I get this Presentation and open it with PowerPoint (Windows) and save it again (different Name), all my Videos are working with PowerPonit (Windows) but are also not detected as a VideoFrame (same Problem).

if (curShape instanceof com.aspose.slides.PictureFrame) {
PictureFrame curPicFra = (PictureFrame) curShape;

if (curShape instanceof com.aspose.slides.VideoFrame) {
VideoFrame curVidFra = (VideoFrame) curShape;

Dear Tobias,

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Please attach both of your ppts one saved in Windows and one that was saved in Mac, so that we could look into it.


I attached three *.ppts, the first one is saved by windows only, the second one is saved by MAC and the third one is saved first by MAC, then by windows. All *.ppt are contain a reference on a video-file on slide five.


Dear msfaiz,

do you have any other ideas or suggestions to solve my problem?

kind regards

I will let you know soon, it seems the problem is because of MS-PowerPoint 2007 and later versions causing, when ppts are saved in compatibility mode.

Dear msfaiz,

thank you in advance.
