Answers

  • Are you sharing the PowerPoint as part of "Program Sharing" ? if yes this is not going to play a embedded video in PowerPoint.

    You must need Office Web App (Now it is called as "Office Online Server") in order to render the embedded video in the PowerPoint sharing. Office Online Servers will help in rendering the video content in the PowerPoint and all the participants can watch the video content without any hassle. 

    How to Deploy Office Online Server and integrate with Skype for Business ?

  • Hi Callum,

    If you enable the VBSS, you could meeting the Network bandwidth requirements for media traffic

    Video codec

    Resolution and aspect ratio

    Maximum video payload bit rate (Kbps)

    Minimum video payload bit rate (Kbps)

    H.264 

    1920x1080 (16:9)  (The aspect ratio depends on the sharer's monitor resolution, and will not always be 16:9) 

    4000 

    1500 

    Please also check the ports after you enabled the VBSS, you could refer to the following link.
