I need a download of the EDS cat herding video. I'm having a difficult time finding it available for download. Does anyone have a copy or know where I can download it for embedding in a powerpoint presentation?

Google Video downloaders + Flash video converters should do what you need.

You can start by downloading the MP4 using this site. Then use a converter to go from MP4 to WMV. I have a convoluted process that works for me (ffdshow, AviSynth, WmNicEnc, VLC, etc.,) but you will probably want to use a dedicated converter if you're not into that sort of thing.

I'd convert it to a WMV with the above tools and embed it in my PowerPoint using Insert File -> Movie.

Here's an mpeg version I had laying around if that helps.

Try Keepvid.

You can use this video tutorial which discusses how to embed youtube videos in a powerpoint. This is the easiest way to do it, since it embeds straight from the online video (although you'll need internet access during your presentation). The same guy has a tutorial on how to embed the video and not be online during the presentation. The video discusses how to do it in Windows (it won't work for Mac) and be sure to read the comments if you're having difficulty. Here's the cat herding video on youtube.

I have a QuickTime version sitting around if you want it. Not the best quality, but better than YouTube. Send me a message if you're interested.
