Increasing the size limit of embedded media for the PowerPoint Web App

 

Cause:

The Office Web Apps Server is limited to 50MB for embedded media in the PowerPoint Web App

 

Error:

 

Please be aware that while the following information may resolve your issue, it is not a solution supported by Microsoft.

Resolution:

We can increase the size of the limit as shown below:

 

1. On the Office Web Apps Server(s) edit the following file:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Web Apps\PPTConversionService\Settings_Service.ini

 

2. Add the following lines at the bottom and save:

PowerPointEditServerMaxFileSizeBytes=(System.UInt64)153600000

PowerPointServerMediaEmbeddedMaxSize=(System.UInt64)153600000

 

3. Open a Admin PowerShell window on the Office Web Apps Server(s) and run:

Restart-service WACSM

 

This should allow up to 150MB videos to be embedded. You can adjust the byte value above to meet your needs.
