Voki Tip of the Week: Save your Voki as a video file!

March 28, 2011

Some of our users have been wondering about turning their Voki scenes into .avi files (which stands for Audio Video Interleave). We’re here to help! It’s quite easy to create your Voki scene and add it wherever you like. It may take some time (and a little patience), but if we can do it, you can do it! :)

One of our tech savvy educators left a great tip via the Teacher’s Corner. Here’s how it works.:

  • Create a Voki.
  • Go to CamStudio (for example) and download the latest program;  it’s free.
  • Open the program and return to your Voki.
  • Drag the box over your Voki and press Record.
  • Play your Voki.
  • Stop recording when finished.

You can save your recording on your PC as a video file. You can then add it to a PowerPoint presentation, a website, or anywhere else for that matter. Give it a try!

    I was able to record my Voki using Cam Studio, but the sound is not being captured. Are there certain settings within Cam Studio that I should change?

      Hi Beth, or anyone else, did you find a solution to this? I can hear myself but not my Voki either using CamStudio. Any fixes?

        HI Maureen,

        You’ll have to record the audio directly from your computer. You might want to check this video out:

        Hi there,

        You will have to follow the instructions in the post! If you like, you can find an alternate screen capturing that you like to use!

    I embedded a voki in a PowerPoint presentation. It worked great, until I saved and left the presentation. When I reopened the presentation, the voki would not load up! Any ideas about how to correct this?

      Linda, how did you embed a voki in a PowerPoint? I’m trying to figure it out (without installing the program suggested above)…

      Same thing happened to me. Anybody know why?

      • June 6, 2012 7:25 pm

        Hi Everyone,

        We’re sorry to hear your having trouble embedding in PowerPoint. It sounds like these may be unique situations rather than a bug in the program so you will need to email Please give as much detail as possible about what you are experiencing and we will work on a solution with you.

      how did you do that?? when I go to insert then to movie its suppose to say video from website but mine dont say that?

      • November 7, 2012 5:13 pm

        Hi Nicole,

        You must be using the 2007 version of PowerPoint. The option for “Video from website” is only available on the 2010 version. Th easiest way you can embed your Voki on PowerPoint is using the direct Voki link or inserting your Voki as a video file.

    For about a week my voki played on my google site….then it quit & I can’t get it to start again. Any suggestions? I used directions from this link, and at first it worked.

    • August 6, 2012 1:32 pm

      Hi There,

      Those instructions are not from the Voki site, so I’m not sure they are correct or up to date. Please email and they will help you out. Send as much information as possible and a screen shot if relevant.

    I have used SMRecorder – it’s free, too and doesn’t us as much hard drive space as CamStudio does. You can convert the files to other video types, also.

    • October 23, 2012 11:49 pm

      oops, SMRecorder doesn’t use as much hard drive space as CamStudio does.

        Hey there!

        Thanks for sharing! I’m sure our Voki users will find this information useful!

      Hi Yenshan,

      If you followed the instruction to save your Voki as a video file, you can use a video editor and edit the different videos together.

    Does anybody know if there is any way to put a Voki in ApprenNet? It would be in video form. I saw earlier where people were using SMS Recorder and CamStudio. I am a neophyte in all of this, so I would like the simplest answer possible. I do have to use ApprenNet though; I’m just not sure how to put (embed?) the Voki in there or if it is even possible. Thanks!

    I have selected my character and completed all I needed to do but twice now I receive the message that says, ALERT, This model is only available to Voki Classroom or presenter users and I can’t publish. Also our instructions is to NOT choose one with the graduation cap in the corner which I did not. So what is happening? I hate to keep trying all these and find out I can’t use. help!

  19. June 12, 2014 11:29 pm

    Is there a way you can add it to a website creating site? Like

    I was able to create my Voki and add audio to it but, how do share a live link of my Voki say for a school assignment online for example?

    • August 11, 2014 2:21 pm

      Hi LaKeisha,

      After you create your Voki, just click publish and save! After that, you can just grab the link and share it! Take a look at these videos for instructions:

    Beware of cam/studio/yes it is free-it will work, but beware they will load your computer up with malware-ad ware, be sure you have some type of malware remover once you have used cam studio-or uninstall it after you are done.
