TO WONDERSHARE (and to a lesser extent GOTD too)
Some of us have much less than 24hrs to download, install and check GOTD programs. If they fail, then there is often no time to try different remedies. Tech support needs to see what's happening and get in there quickly with a solution. It's no good stating "Email Tech Support".
1. There isn't time, and
2. GOTD states "No tech support entitlement"

So... boo again to your tech support (I'm assuming #42 doesn't work for Wondershare)and again sadly, PPT2FLASH is still coming off this pc.

Both this product and iSpring (Asschaff's recommendation) are good inexpensive alternatives to Articulate Presenter, Captivate, and others. Articulate Presenter is king of the hill in PPT to Flash conversion - but it's also hellish pricey - $700 or so for a two-user license last time we purchased one.

Wondershare, for an offshore publisher - really is trying to do a decent job. YOu'll notice they're pro-active here, always willing to jump in and help etc. For free, you can't beat this. I just wish they'd go way out on the limb and do a GiveAaway with the PRO version of their whole learning suite. How 'bout it guys?

@23

iSpring Pro does the job in a far superior fashion. iSpring Pro gives you several choices of players, lets you customize the buttons displayed on the players, allows you to set the flash video to play automatically, and even allows direct uploads to Slideboom from within the iSpring interface. I'm typically a Wondershare fan, but PPT2Flash doesn't measure up.

Hopefully this signifies the imminent appearance of some other Wondershare titles that I DO need-- DemoCreator, please? Thanks GAOTD!

Downloaded, converted 2 PP shows, both almost an hour long. Vista Home Premium. HP quad core machine that has never given me a problem in almost 2 years.

Some transition errors, animation errors, text errors, like some letters missing, some graphics skewed too wide, audio sounded tinny.

Converted the same with ispring free version. Converted correctly, no errors, great sound qality.

A thumbs down for me today. Too bad.....

ispring converter is free and not bad. but I always fail to convert any ppt that contains any wma or mp3 file, wav file is OK though. It doesn't support narration recording either.

That's why I want to keep this wondershare piece, too. I got that "Conversion Failed! Programmatic access to Visual Basic Project is not trusted." with this software when using powerpoint 2007 yesterday too. However, I figured it out. Here is what I did:

PowerPoint 2007
Select the Office Button or press Alt+F key combination.
Click PowerPoint Options button.
Select Trust Center in the left pane.
Click Trust Center Settings button in the right pane.
Select Macro Settings in the left pane.
Make sure that Trust access to the VBA project object model is checked.
Click OK buttons.

I tried installing earlier today under Vista Ultimate, under my own account (supposedly Administrator level). I got a series of crashes when trying to convert using this givaway. I tried uninstalling and it wouldn't let me do this until I had logged off and on again.

I then installed this evening using "Run as Administrator" and I didn't even get the toolbar in PowerPoint. So it's coming off and ISpring is declared the winner by a long margin.

I believe Wondershare have done themselves no good with this trial today. I can only hope the problems arose because they tried to strip features out for this version - I would not pay anything for this software and if I had paid, I would be asking for my money back.

Very nice that Wondershare gave us something, I appreciate that! :) AND I much appreciate that Wondershare is monitoring this & is commenting! That's what we'd love for all GOTD offerings! Shows they have faith in their product & want people to get started off right with it, & that they care about their product! Kudos Wondershare! :)

Too bad they felt they had to disable some parts of the program just for GOTD! Why? That says something in CAPITOL letters too! I won't spell it out, as it's the FEELING we get from that. It's nice they shared at all, I guess. :)Really. Personally, I didn't try it, as i don't have Powerpoint. Sounds great if u do.

About free alternatives being posted- I have complained lately about SO MANY being posted that it's just insulting, silly, & space consuming here. I did NOT mean I object to SOME being posted, but when 30 peeps post all the same alternatives & they mostly never post any comparisons, it just looks like a bunch of 11 yr olds competing, to sound knowledgeable when they aren't. I like to read all comments here, & that takes up space, & time to read it. If you see an alt posted 3 times, ya don't need to post it again. If you have no idea how they compare, or what the freebie does or not, then ya, I can Google it myself. If it's useful, GREAT! Post it & I will appreciate it too. I often check out the free alts here too. But SOOOOOOOO MANY as I complained about that 1 day?? Come on, have mercy. I sure do hope the software makers don't feel they'd rather not subject their software to our kind of criticism, is the big reason I objected to so many alts posted that day. Don't wanna chase em all away. :)
Did ya ever notice how sometimes 1 comment of someone's opinion, such as the above, will get almost as many comments as the software being offered? lol Seriously, all opinions matter, yes. :) I care what every 1 of u thinks, that's why I read all comments. I regret if my opinion made anyone feel hurt.

Open Office is the same as MS Office, only better, plus you can open any Office files with it and also save so that things will open in Office.

In Open Office you can export presentations direct to flash without this program. That works even with MS PPT's.

I,also, read the comments (especially Ashraf's) even when I'm not all that interested in the software. Often, even if I decide that the GOTD software in not for me, I make note of the free alternatives in case I need the same kind of software in the future. I really appreciate the fact that Woundershare has taken the time to monitor this discussion and add to it. I think we all have had trouble with good software because we missed some vital point when trying to use it for the first time. I hope in the future more vendors will address people's concerns in this forum.

Methinks to myself, "Wow! A free tool to convert my PPT's to Flash!" I eagerly download/setup and look at the nice interface - very slick! I think of all the wonderful SWF's that I will soon be bestowing on the world. I figure, "Self, why not convert ALL of your amazing PPT's to SWF?!?!?! Why be too picky?" So I do a search my computer for PPT files, ya know, to make sure I get ALL of them... "Search results not found" ??? Surely that can't be! This certainly prompts some additional pondering. "Hmmm....where did I place all of my PPT's?!?!" I frantically search the backup drive, then all of my randomly burned/unmarked CDR's. NOTHING! So I furiously go through the blanks on the spindle (Cuz ya never know where I might find those PPT's....) and still nothing! Certainly I will find them someday....right? So I open PowerPoint to create a new PPT full of juicy bits of information that the public is certainly craving! AHA! The export to SWF works! Now to post this gem to my frequently visited website!!! Wait a minute.... I don't have a real website? Myspace & Facebook don't support SWF??? Come to think of it... did I really even have all of those PPT files that I originally conceived of when I first saw the download offer? Maybe this tool ISN'T for me... maybe this tool isn't useful for most people... *SIGH* Tomorrow is another day.

#7: "But the idea of uploading the converted file (with a .swf extension) to YouTube is not a good idea as it is not recognizable by YouTube even though you’re uploading a .swf file."

If you want Power Point or other presentations on YouTube, just make a video out of it & upload -- note that converting your presentation to Flash/Shockwave in PPT2Flash can do more than just turn your presentation into a video file [see features at the developers' web site].

Much simplified, the Flash/Shockwave plugins/players play special files -- think of it like Real audio & video files needing the Real Player to view &/or listen to them. Flash & Shockwave are more versatile however -- you can have anything from stills to slideshows to programming (like games) to video. YouTube & loads of other sites use Flash formatted video, which rather than using something like Windows Media Player, uses a Shockwave player included with the web page -- it's just more or less normal web video encoded to the Flash (flv) format. Video can also be combined with a Shockwave Player into an swf file, which allows much more viewer/user interaction, but since any video content is contained (buried) in the swf package, it's not nearly the same thing as supplying flv video to a player on a web page. And, that player on the web page isn't going to be able to handle anything but playing that video -- no interactivity.

The simplest way to get video up on Youtube is to put it into one of the recommended formats & upload it. YouTube itself has pretty strict internal rules on the flv video it uses -- YouTube servers convert your uploaded video into flv with their preferred settings. You're usually better off to use higher quality video rather than try to upload something that'll pass thru with no conversion, but you can Google for info on gaming their system.

And before anyone cries foul about people who mention alternative freeware products, can I just say that there are a lot of us out there who find these critiques and suggestions very, very helpful.

I agree! I love knowing what else is out there (for free) and being able to make comparisons. There are definitely times when a free version from someplace else will suit my needs better. I never miss reading Ashraf's comment even if I'm not interested in the download!

Upon further review on thier website, the standard edition is especially made for GOTD. I don't know where the $59.95 value comes from because the pro version is $99.95 but GOTD users can get it for $50.00 for a limited time.

According to thier website:

Features Hidden in GOTD version {in other words, you cannot access these features}
• Player templates: No-Skin/Control bar/More… • Animation Play Control: Automatically /Originally playing

Since keeping original animations is very important, you can give an accurate review of it without testing that feature. iSpring gave us a full version Pro edition to test when they offered it on GOTD. iSpring also offeres a freeware version that is fully functional, you just have a player at the bottom and you have less bells & whistles.

WHY I AM DOWNLOADING AND TRYING WONDERSHARE TODAY ...

I am concerned at the statements that we should not be talking about free alternatives. Certainly we can provide a valuable service for GAOTD's vendors by focusing on the differences between their products and any freeware.

If a product were to be .exactly. the same as a freeware offering, that would be worth pointing out.

However, what happens nearly all the time is that there is real "Value Added" by the professional software. Sometimes that difference is not worth the price, depending on the buyer. Sometimes it certainly is worth the price, depending on the buyer.

I have Wondershare on my disk, and I will be giving it and the other possibilities test runs.

I can tell you this ... I have "payware" on my systems that I use in preference to freeware. (The Windows OS is one example.) Once I tried all the alternatives, in the face of real problems and tasks I have before me, the simple act of writing a check or giving a card number can become very easy.

This is why a good programmer, hopefully, would write a program that improves on freeware: because it brings value that the system owner may gladly pay money for.

That is why I state again: Pointing out freeware alternatives for use to compare against is a service for the vendors. It can help them sell their products.

* * * * *

That said, I think the tone here hurts the GAOTD site, which I want to see flourish. If one sneers "why would anyone want this software when XYZ does the same thing?", they will probably eventually reveal their ignorance, because there may be a very good reason. I use Magical File Shield, and I use Glary Utilities, both to produce encrypted self-extracting archives, because they have a crucial subtle feature that AxCrypt and 7Zip lack (although each is a fine freeware utility).

Instead, I'd like the users here to point out the existence of alternatives, and even make comparisons of features, if possible.

If Wondershare has some golden little improvement over iSpring that makes my life much easier, that will make me happy and willing to whip out my credit card.

Please point out freeware alternatives, while being respectful to the payware vendor's work.

Peace and God's Blessings.

This is the first Wondershare program thats failed miserably. It's not that big of a deal to me because even tho I have Power Point, it's not something I use often enough to care.

I use PP to create educational games. I have been using the iSpring Pro offered previously here and it works great because you can create a exe file for your game. Flash runs smoother and does not lag like PP. I was going to try this version to see if it was better because I have been impressed with Wondershare products in the past but there are too many options not available on the standard version that make it worthly for my purpose. The standard version will not allow you to keep the original animation timings, you are forced to use "trigger all animations on mouse click".

I feel the limitations on this version should be for a freeware version, not one that they offer for $60. Never converted a file because it will not work for my purpose. May be good if all you want to do is a slide show with no animations and don't want the player at the bottom like the free version of iSpring.

Why not make your presentation using photo story 3 and if you want text make it in PP and then import it to photo story 3.

This can be converted to anyformat you would like.

Two cons: you must click on the presentation to activate animations in the standard version, so don't try to publish anything except a straight slide show, which may be ok for some people, but animations add excitement to presentations. And the audio was choppy playing file directly on my computer (AMD dual-core, 3 gigs RAM, nvidia 9600GT), making it not very useful for my purposes.

Be careful with this one. It does say in the requirements "Powerpoint", but I assumed that it was required (obviously) to make the powerpoint presentation, and then this would do the conversion.

However it appears that it runs inside powerpoint as an add-on of some sorts.

Not much use to me as I use powerpoint at work in my free time and was hoping to bring some on my presentations home with me and convert them here.

Not for me this time, but thanks GOTD anyway.

Why Would You Ever Want to Convert a Powerpoint Presentation into a Flash File?

Here is a detailed list of the key advantages for converting a PowerPoint presentation into a Flash file. No matter what your final goal is, a Flash-based presentation goes a long way in making your content easily accessible and distributable.

1) Greater Accessibility
Once converted to Flash, anyone can easily view a PowerPoint presentation in any Internet browser. Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Netscape, Safari, Opera, and others. As more than 98% of all browsers have the Flash plug-in installed. You aren't required to install any special software or tell your audience to do the same.

2) Compatibility
Everyone who has a computer including those on Macs, Linux, Solaris, HP, SGI workstations, PDAs (PocketPCs/Windows Mobile and PalmOS), and handheld devices (with an integrated Flash player) can watch your PowerPoint in Flash. There's no limit in terms of devices or computer operating systems.

3) Reduced Files Size
A PowerPoint presentation converted to Flash can drastically reduce the size up to 1/10th of the original file size.

4) Sound Integration
Flash files can also integrate audio tracks, including music and voice-overs.

5) Display Resolution
Flash files can be played at virtually any resolution and/or screen size, making this file format an ideal way to distribute presentations across many display devices.

6) Internet Distribution
Distributing PowerPoint files on the Internet for other people to see is easier said than done. Not everyone has PowerPoint installed on his PC. But once you upload a Flash file to any server, forum and discussion group, anyone can watch it.

7) Streaming
Flash files use streaming technology that allows online viewers to start watching the presentation without waiting for the entire presentation to download before playback begins.

8) Basic Interaction Controls
Flash files contain optional embedded controls that let the end user control playback, stop and rewind the presentation.

9) More Distribution Options
Flash, for the reasons previously listed, is also an ideal format for distributing PowerPoint presentations on CD-ROMs. It allows multi-platform compatibility while providing a lean and fast performing file. It can also integrate audio and video while displayed on different displays and resolutions.

10) Email-Ready
Even if you want to send a PowerPoint file to someone by email, converting it to Flash may be a better option. The file size is smaller, and it doesn't clog your recipient's inbox. You also retain all of your transitions, animations and effects, while ensuring that the recipient can see the file without loading other software (for example, PowerPoint Viewer, which is 2.7 MB).

11) Secure
Others can edit PowerPoint files if they have PowerPoint installed on their machine. This is not the case for Flash files. However, they allow you to maintain more control over your content, if needed.

12) Firewall Friendliness
Flash-based content has no problem going through firewalls because it's like standard Web content.

This is a useful GAOTD; I’ve never had any major issues with Wondershare products so overall, I’d say this makes for a good addition to anyone’s software library.

This software works in tangent with Microsoft PowerPoint. If you don't have MS PowerPoint, this wouldn't work.

Interface is good. A tab is created with a drop down menu with various options to work on depending on the users needs.

However, as this may sound good and rather fancy, but it doesn't deliver that much as it was expected because the html file alone--let's say can be a link on a web page that might as well work. But the idea of uploading the converted file (with a .swf extension) to YouTube is not a good idea as it is not recognizable by YouTube even though you're uploading a .swf file.

Using XP SP3 I get Error: Conversion Failed! Programmic access to Visual Basic Project is not trusted.

Embeds in your PowerPoint, rather than runs independently. I hope it doesn't conflick with the excellent iSpring, that I also have installed.

That is a cool tool for me. I can even make the Flash Banner without Flash programing skill.

The Good
* Gives you the ability to export PowerPoints as either SWF or EXE flash videos.
* You can upload directly to an FTP server or email your PowerPoints as flash videos.
* You can insert flash videos into your PowerPoint w/ PPT2Flash.
* Has a simple screen capture tool.
* You can control over how your flash video will will behave (you can retain effects, change FPS, resolution, etc.)
* Straight forward and easy to use.
* Disabled features work up until you try to change them.
* You can compress your output videos.

The Bad
* You can only use the 'thumbnail' template for your videos (Standard version limitation).
* You cannot make the PowerPoint animations play automatically when exported to flash (Standard version limitation).
* Only for people who have a copy of Microsoft PowerPoint.
* Being able to export to FLV would have been nice.
* Compression is not that great when compared to file size of videos created by free alternatives.

Free Alternatives
iSpring CONVERTER

For people that don't have Microsoft PowerPoint, OpenOffice (a free alternative to Microsoft Office) contains Impress, the alternative to PowerPoint. Impress has a built in feature that allows you to export into SWF videos.

Verdict
I give Wondershare PPT2Flash Standard a thumbs down. I give it a thubms down because some key features, such as the ability to play PowerPoints automatically after you export them to Flash, are disabled in the Standard version. Personally, I would not even bother downloading PPT2Flash Standard. My recommendation for today is to get iSqring CONVERTER. While iSpring does not have as many 'bells and whistles' as PPT2Flash, basic features such as the ability to play PowerPoints automatically after you export them to Flash, are not disabled. Thumbs down for PPT2Flash Standard and two thumbs up for iSpring CONVERTER.
