The second time I opened PPT2Video - it didn't ask for registration details. Gave it a run - no watermark... still jerky transitions of pics though, even though it was a much smaller file (3MB). The first one I did was 24MB. It didn't like that much!

Anyway - it's doing what it said it would do.

I converted one show that I have previously converted to Flash with iSpring flawlessly. I used the default MPEG2 settings and the result was an MPEG2 with audio only and just a plain black screen - no slides at all.In the future I think I will convert to Flash with iSpring and ,if I need it in another format, use another converter to convert the Flash to the format I want. Disappointing to me.

Hi :-)
I just downloaded and installed the software (I use XP). No problem at all to register it.
The readme is very clear.
I tried to convert a small PPT (8 slides - 151KB) into WMV.
You can adjust during the process the quality of the output.
It took about 2 minutes and created a 544KB file.
The program does what it claims.
I know how I will use it in the future, in my teaching job.
I will keep it.
Thanks GOTD

Hi there Julian (67)
The pptx (Powerpoint2007) I converted had music too - but the audio converted with no problem. I'm not sure what caused your issue.

I have just installed the software and given it a run... seems to convert well, but not as smooth as powerpoint transitions. Maybe I missed something - but what's the registration code? Or do I have to put up with "Evaluation Copy" splattered across the screen? If so I'll pass.

Thank you for your service - I'm sure it gets the thumbs up from most users.

Thanks Giveawayoftheday.com, for doing yeomen services to people who don't want to waste money on small utilities.

Well, one needs to create a PPT for converting it into any form, so where is the question of "Do I need Powerpoint / MS Office" etc.?

My plea to everyone is: Please offer constructive criticism on the usefulness of the software or otherwise rather than trying to find faults with it. All of you will agree with me that one shoud not look into the horse's mouth that you got for free.

#46 it could have used powerpoint viewer instead of requiring the full comercial instalation. Or it could have incorporated Impress PPT rendering functionality bypassing MS products altogether.

Tried to get this to work under Vista home basic with MSO home and student 2007 trial both with and without UAC active and using a variety of output formats and it kept faling to produce any temp video let alone the output video it promsses. The report back error logs function also failed to work too!

It looks like #10 Scott stroke a chord in many coz the reactions are of shock and outrage. Personally I couldn't read it coz it was on "deleted" when I came. What I see in all of these "Commentators" lineup is a family like any extended family, with only one thing in common, thats GAOTD, but otherwise with indeed very different intellectual, social, financial, technical and IQ levels, hence the continuous whining and complaining and the resulting bickering and criticisms. Of course maturity means ignoring all of these, even if difficult coz of the insistent recurrence, but what I do is pick 4-5 names of "reasonable" commentators that come here regularly and just follow their take of the day's offering. A simplified way of dealing with naggers and time wasters.
Still GAOTD's job is commendable, my appreciation!

The topic isn't a new one: There have been numerous giveaways with comments like "All these converters can be linked to one or two companies (in the far East) that adopt a bunch of names in order to make more profit. Looking at the GUI you can see it's all virtually the same."

By accident today I've stumbled upon a registry entry indicating that Acoolsoft must have links to Wondershare - a company, by the way, whose votings are quite appealing.
I dont' know why there is a third registry path in addition to HKLM/Software/Acoolsoft and HKCU/Software/Acoolsoft but there has to be some reason for HKLM/Software/Wondershare/PPT2Video Converter.

Does anyone have more informations about who is behind Acoolsoft and where they are located?

During the install per the instructions (setup first, then activation), the screen popped up with NUMEROUS errors on the program itself (I kept having to click 'OK' on each one); opened the MS PowerPoint registration page to insert their registration code; and opened an additional window saying it couldn't find the version of MS PowerPoint I was using and to select it from a dropdown list.

I closed all the error popup windows, closed the program, and ran the activate program. Again, several errors popped up when the program opened... but in going to the 'About' menu, it showed the program registered with email address and Registration Code inserted (giveaway@giveawayof... etc. and the alphanumeric code).

It allowed me to insert several PPT files, and click the create DVD button. A window popped up to say to make sure PowerPoint was closed and not to open it during the conversion process. THIS was promising as I don't have PowerPoint and was hoping for a Stand-Alone program to do this with. (Thinking GAOTD found a replacement for the PPT 'add on' it gave earlier.) After waiting about 20 minutes, I received an error code that it could not make the DVD and suggested I go to the support page or take a survey. (Why a survey?)

I tried a 2nd time with only 1 PPT file. After 10 minutes, again a "Could not Convert" message. In checking the HELP menu, I noticed the System Requirements listed a LOT MORE than the mere MS Operating system on the GAOTD page -- including MS PowerPoint.

Since it wouldn't work (twice) and clearly stated (in the help files) that MS PowerPoint was a system requirement, I deleted the program.

Hopefully, GAOTD will eventually give us a true 'stand alone' program that doesn't need the MS version of PPT installed. In the meantime, thanks for offering it to those who have the program and can use it.

This is one of those examples of the software being decent and useful to a subset of users, and the rest whining and complaining that they don't like to spend money on software like MS Office. If you're not going to review the software or help others with problems, don't comment. You're just wasting everyone's time, yourselves included.

#71, if you're using Vista, you need to run "Activate .exe" as an administrator. Extract it to your desktop, right click, and "Run as administrator."

The software seems pretty straightforward -- I can see the value in putting a self-playing presentation on DVD or on Youtube if it's worth showing to others.

Note - You do not have to have the Microsoft Office/PowerPoint program installed to use this. It is fully effective with PowerPoints saved from the net. One would need to PPS viewer only to see them and that is totally downloadable.
Re: Vista - you ALWAYS need to save the file, then unzip and run those each file as administrator. All works out well if you do.
#58 It converts a .pps to movie, (the format of your choice).

I send PPS files all the time and people think they cannot open them as they are 'afraid' to download the PPS reader from Microsoft. THIS they watch. LOL

The PPT2Video converter installed fine on my XP machine, and it creates a nice video from my PPTs.

However, I had a Powerpoint which had music in it, and the converted video played fine, but it did not convert the audio.

Have any GOTD'ers had success with the PPT2Video converter when there was audio in the PPT, and the converted file played the audio.

I am impressed. I have tried other freeware programs to convert to video and they never seemed to work well (animations usually does not work). I tested a PowerPoint Slide Show that had a few animations, background music, and pictures mixed with video files. I converted it to wmv format (since it should run on any Windows computers) and the outputted video file looked great and ran smoothly.

To answer some of the questions that have been posted:

Some reasons for converting PowerPoint to VideoCreating self-running slideshows to be shown on other computersPowerPoint sometimes lags and then skips slides (it skipped an entire video file when I was showing the show I just tested)If you have video files in your slide show, you have to also copy the video files and make sure the links did not get messed upYou don’t have to worry about your fonts carrying over to the other computerYou don’t have to worry if they have PowerPoint or a viewer and if you convert to wmv, it should show on any Windows computerCreating a slide show that can be put on DVDMany DVD programs will create slide shows. That is fine for simple Picture Slide shows but it is limited. I have found that sometimes I want to use the features and animations in PowerPoint. This will allow you to create in PowerPoint, convert to video file, and then use your DVD burning program to import the video
As far as the difference in this and iSpring, iSpring converts to flash files, not video files. They both have practical uses and I will be using both.
I believe this program was thinking of people preparing PowerPoint slideshows and have it converted to video files for various reasons. Therefore, you would have PowerPoint. Maybe this is why it converts better than the others I have tried.

Thank you #18 & #23 I've been saying for the longest time for people who complain to be grateful. It frustrates me because it's a direct reflection of many Americans in a newer generation that in my opinion that are arrogant, spoiled, and narcissistic.

I have gotten so many great software gifts and you know "they" only make so many different types of programs, people expect 365 different programs a year?????!!!!! No wonder American's are not well liked around the world. Be appreciative of what you got people, It could be gone tomorrow. God Bless the World, not just America.

Hmmm Rob (29). Must not be an office worker... I help support 3400 staff, they would kill for this. (During conference's, that is what they do...show power point presentations.) This could simplify the conferences and allow them to forward the documents to outside agency's that do not have MS Office. Now I will not run around and install it for everyone (and would lose my job for that) but I'll test it myself and if it works how it sounds.. I'll recommend it be purchased.

There is a number of offerings that I don't bother with... but someone else might.. I can't imagine searching for the goodies that they GIVE AWAY on this site! Dealing with the the company's to get it setup. And dealing with THE PUBLIC THAT THINK THIS SHOULD FOLLOW THEIR STANDARDS.
I don't use screen savers, SO WHAT! A lot of people do!!

Anyways... get a life and let the rest of us enjoy the wonderful software that we get here for free... that said...I'm off to recover keys, even if it does miss a few... thanks

"Can anyone tell me what you would use this for?"
You have a presentation, a DVD, a TV and no computer. You need this so you can get by without the computer and usually a projector.

This type of program (I can't comment on this particular program - I haven't tried it yet) is really useful for people doing digital signage (those screens you see in Wal-mart, Albertson's and similar places). Like a big video loop, with maybe some Flash thrown in. Most systems don't handle Powerpoint well, if at all. Partly that's due to Microsoft's changing of their playback tools. There's a free viewer, and back in the day you could control it programmatically, but no more.

So if you want to put Powerpoint presentations (as many have said, a lot of businesses are rife with these) into a different presentation, or stream it from a web site, or allow people without any special extra software like OpenOffice or Powerpoint or a viewer - say just a media player), then this is the sort of tool you need. It's a niche thing, no doubt, but hugely helpful in certain niches...

Yes, you are missing something, although I really can understand your confusion. Here's where this little app comes in handy: Let's say you have PowerPoint installed on your PC and you create a great presentation for sales demos or other any other purpose. And, let's also say that you want to show it on various computers that don't have PowerPoint installed. This app allows you to produce a standard video you can drop onto a DVD (or video CD) that you can run on computers that don't have PowerPoint, or even display on home DVD players connected to a TV. Make sense?

Thank you so much GAOTD and Acoolsoft for this software. I have been watching every day to see if a converter for power point would be offered. I am making family albums in power point and need to convert to mpeg files and looks like this program will do that. I have converted one album already and the software worked wonderfully. You offer some marvellous programs here and I visit every day. Thanks for all your work.

Thanks again GAOTD; there's been some v. useful programs recently!
Can anyone help me, though: I thought this converter would be a good way to put .swf files onto video (making a quick PP presentation with the swf inserted), but although the swf plays within Powerpoint, when I converted the PP presentation to vid using this program (which seems really good in all other respects), the swf showed as a blank screen. Am I asking too much? Or am I doing something wrong? I should have thought that I've published it as a PPp, so anything on it should be converted with this neat program.
Keep up the good work GAOTD, I never miss a day looking at the site.

This is the first time I have commented on GOTD's website. I have downloaded numerous programs and have used most of them. I appreciate GOTD, and I don't understand those who speak negatively just because they don't like a particular offer.

Anyhow, today's offer is great. I have converted two PPT programs, and there were no problems.

#13: Today's program is not better (or worse) than ISpring, it is just different. ISpring embeds into PPT and is easily used, but it converts only to Flash. ACOOLSOFT converts to multiple formats, not including Flash.

You are correct, I didn't think anything of it until I installed it again on my laptop. I didn't think software could do that, especially when not run with Adminstrator privileges, and it doesn't re-enable UAC when finished.

If installing this on Vista, you will need to re-enable UAC manually, although if you haven't disabled security center it will notify you.


I think the point is for distributing content, after all you would have needed Powerpoint to make the file in the first place! It means you can send on to friends or colleagues, or even have a link on your website, and people can download and view the content on a media player.

#26 and everyone - You could change a PPT to a video for many reasons. For instance, If you did not have a video editing program, Power Point is the best for that then. This program would be a perfect idea for an average person who wants to say, upload a video to You Tube, or give to somebody who does not have powerpoint installed. This is a great little program and has many usses. Thumbs Up.

I'm not sure what I did differently, but I just tried it again and it doesn't have "Evaluation Copy" on the show. So you can ignore or delete the previous comment.

The only thing I can figure out is that before I opened the progam the 2nd time, I clicked on the activation button again and then opened the program.

Now it works great!!

Now just have to figure out if I can embed these on a website. In due time...

This is actually very useful. I teach at a University and I use powerpoints everyday. Whats good about this program is that I can convert those to video that the students can put on their iPods or other video device and study away from home by watching the video of the powerpoint.
Thanks GAOTD..I love this site!

I presumed from the title of the software that I would need PowerPoint on my computer to either show or create a PowerPoint presentation which I would THEN use this product to convert that presentation to a video format.

That would be an obvious, logical deduction.

PowerPoint is used in most workplaces and this program is very helpful when having to travel to various sites to make presentations--especially if not able to use your own computer with all the software you need installed. Nothing worse than not being to get a presentation started off-site!

Another good use is for people who have used PowerPoint in the past to make photo slide shows to show family & friends. They may not know how to use the photo video type software so this will assist them in making their slide shows portable.

Thanks GOTD, this is a great bit of software and will come in very handy!

As for those who are surprised that a piece of software used to convert PowerPoint presentations requires PowerPoint? Well, DUH.

I just down loaded the software and installed it - super easy! (or so it seemed)

I then decided to try it out... Again super easy!

But and this is a biggie! The show has in big bold letters across the bottom "Evaluation Copy"!

Did I miss a step or is this what to expect from the product?

Help would be appreciated, thank you.

Many who use your site probably don't post. They just download & install. Unfortunately, I have been one of these folk, who over the past 4 months have found your site to be one that I visit daily, then get on with my life. During this time, I've come to rely upon many of the postings (thumbs up and down) before making a decision to download. So this part of your site works for me. I think most visitors simply ignore those who feel they have to be negative or find fault with something, and make it into a personal thing.

Keep up the good work. This is a great service to MOST of your visitors, or else they wouldn't come back. Thank goodness our son referred us to GAOTD!!!
