Dear valued users,
For anyone installing DVD Presenter on a Vista machine: you have to run the activation and setup program as administrator (right click on “activate” and click on “run as administrator,” then choose“run.”
There is a new version 4.0.1 of DVD Presenter. This new version improved the compatibility with Windows Vista.
And many other fixes.

Try it now: http://www.sameshow.com/powerpoint-to-dvd.html

Tried the forums for my problem, but they don't seem to be in working condition (what are the odds?)

Started up DVD Presenter and loaded up my .ppt file (all 38mb of it). Selected a spot on my HD (1.8gb free) and it didn't like that- not enough room it said. Ridiculous that it wanted more than 1.8gb to process a 38 megabyte file. Inserted a DVD and pointed to it as the output (left the temporary file in the default location) and it still refuses to run. Lovely.

First time I've come across software on GotD that I couldn't use.

I could'nt install as I do not have the product key. Activate.exe produced an error. So much for this sort of problems -- see comments 10, 15, 106, etc. Three instances of failure out of 108 suggests that the program is not worthy of a place on GOTD. Or is it?

I work as a disabled scouts leader and I missed this, will it be republished as we would like it for our groups use, as the scouts make powerpoint shows and this is the ideal solution to their needs? Michael Group Leader.

Very nice programm. But it does not work. I cannot install it on my Windows XP pro PC, because it asks for e-mail and registration code..... It also does not work with OpenOffice.org, when saved as ppt-file then I get an I/O error 32.
On the site of Wonderware I can not find any info about that it will work with OpenOffice.org.
For help, please see my posting on the GOTD-forum.

When trying to install this on a computer running Vista, it installs & says it Successfully Activates, but asks for email & reg and says 15-days left in the title bar. Installing it on a computer with XP works though.

Interesting program.
Installed w/o problem on XP Home with MSOffice 2000.
Was able to preview and convert 81 slide PPT with effects - video quality was good after changing video quality level to HIGH. All simple effects in slides worked whether clickable or automatic.

Can create ISO file for burning.

Like the idea of creating DVD's for different countries. Have to try final quality with video and/or sound embedded in ppt.

Problems:
1. Program does not "see" my DVD burner whether there is DVD in or not. Able to create iso for burning with NERO.

2. When I request that the automatic slide advance takes 10 seconds, the output advances at 1 second (default). Changed advance to 8 seconds to see if it makes a difference. I am using WinDVD to view the Video_TS folder output before burning a disc.

3. I wonder if it is capable of emulating the ppt ability to change slides along with narration - each slide being of a different wait time. Have to try that out too.

Hello,

Due to my previous post (#78) I have done some experiments and it looks like the software only runs if you have Microsoft Office installed. Open Office won't do either.

Some would argue that you don't need DVD presenter if you don't have power point, well ..., I do. I won't bore you with the details but I do. If somebody knows a workaround, could you please enlighten me?
I have a thread in the Forums, so maybe you can post there?

Unlike most people that seem to frequent this site I have no dire need for .pps / .ppt tools.

Unlike most of them I don't need to make big reports that involve powerpoint files for an audience where there is no computer available How often does that case happen anyway ? How many schools, conference rooms, board rooms, staff rooms are there out there where one can't use, or temporary install, a PC (portable or desktop) hooked up to a decent screen or projector but where they do have a DVD player available as well as a big screen? Any place that can invest in setting up a big screen or projector should at least have the potential for hooking up a computer. There for I can't really see a big market in business.

What about schools I hear you say? Same deal. If a school wants it's students to present there material in slide show format then what are the chances that the school doesn't have computers especially if they do have TV's and DVD players.

For a 100 USD one can buy a quite decent video card with TV out so that one could connect it to any TV set-up. I for one would consider that a much more valid expenditure then using it on a piece of software which is a one trick pony.

If you going to use if for at home then I have to ask why in heavens name did you put the pictures in power point. There's lots of dedicated programs out there that are actual made for that and which don't cost the arm and leg that MS office cost.

Program is ok. It does what it does. Has lots of room of improvement for instance in the ability of actual timing the length of time for an particular slide.

Then again unlike all these big business people on here that were just craving for this kind of particular program and are trying to out do each other in superlatives ... I work for a living. I have worked on computers, programmed them, put them together, sold them, taught people to use them, trouble-shot them, used them and I am, on top of everything else I do, the replacement for the sys-admin in the company I work for. The company does lots of presentations. Most of them in powerpoint. It does this all over the country and in neighboring countries, in all kinds of situations from universities to companies to city councils. Never has it happened that there has been any need for this. Therefor I find the 93% approval for this program that has a very limited actual market is not exactly believable.

The price is simply stupid. I know the USD value has been heavily declining the last 6 years but to ask this amount for a program with limited appeal and possibilities means that some one is living in La-la land. That or as teh qoute that inaccurately attributed to P.T. Barnum goes : "there's a sucker born every minute".

I notice that we are taken to a new screen " hosting partner of Giveawayoftheday.com" and today's date is quoted as download date and the date of June 14th 2007 is quoted as the expiry date. Is there any particular reason that any date fills this space or else why not quote the same date as the download date? I think this confuses people or gives them the wrong information. Is it possible to make this small change?

Nr. 15 & 24 Solution for activation. For vista users go to user/name/appdata/local/temp/rar$EX09.125 then you will see the files activate, read me and setup file.Choose activate;right click and Choose run as administrator. In my case it works.(sorry for my bad english).

#48 & #52, Ahh! There it is! I got to agreed with BladedThoth because he thinks that 100 dollars is too much and stated that "I would say it’d be better around $49.99 to $69.99."

Now you see why I am computer expert and knows the zone. Thats why I have tested that software after I downloaded and seemed that it is not 100 dollars software. If it is 100 dollars software, they should have throw lots of good features and security in it that can racked up the cost. To #48 & #52, I got to disagreed with your comments because this budget does not fit for this software! But yes I did recommend to anyone to the presenters or PowerPoint users who rely on PowerPoint oftens should grab that while it's free within 24 hours period.

Re Comment 41--John,had the exact same problem as you for two days running. Missed the last Alien Shooter game because of it. In my case the fix was to disable SpyCatcher which was apparently blocking the connection with the server. If you have similar software that may be the answer.

Hello,

This is a great program, according to the comments and its price. I was convinced to give it a try. I installed it without a problem, read the docs and went to try my first .ppt file.

The interface looks phenomenal and very easy to do. Every step is very clear and one of the options I love the best is that you can create dvd's in pal, secam or NTSC, so I can burn presentations and my co-workers in Spain don't need a computer to watch the result.

It has every possible output format one can desire. There has been a lot of work behind this software.

One this I disliked very much is that when a DVD presenter fail to convert a .ppt file to mpeg-2 one gets the error message:

-----------------------------------------
Failed to Convert PowerPoint file(s)
Please contact our technical support team.

Choose the next step:
Contact Wondershare Technical Support
Work on new project.
-------------------------------------

Given the fact that we are not entitled to tech support this message is useless. I guess that high price of the software entitles paying customers to all the help they can get from Wondershare, but the folks here at GAOTD are stuck with a meaningless errors.

Other than that, this is a superb program.

-Mario

PS:I should mention that I wan't able to convert half of my working .ppt files to mpeg-2. The ones that work looked great, but I am not sure what to do about the other ones.

This does not seem to be a stand alone converter, no MS Office apps on this vista machine and the demo ppt file they supply or any I threw together with OpenOffice failed to preview render or convert using this tool. My guess is it uses part of the MS PowerPoint API/Engine to render the ppt files in order to capture and convert the output rather than designing their own stand alone engine. If they had their own engine I might consider this worth $50 to $100 but certainly NOT if one has to purchase MS Office to obtain the other part of the program for some hundreds of more dollars!

$100 for this? just from taking a look at the publishers other products available on their website, i take it everything they can think of deserves to be outrageously overpriced. Oooh lookit! i bet we could make an application that makes a bunny hop around the monitor all day, and it could even stop and eat/poop too! I'm thinking we could probably get $50 for it, right?

yes, that's about right you brilliant man you. keep on coming up with things only a few people need and price them for idiots with credit cards, and i'm sure you'll be successful businessmen eventually... sure you will. riiight.

This is for those desperate enough to pay $100 to demonstrate their PowerPoint presentations to viewers with only a DVD player instead of a computer? Usefulness seems very limited. At least it appears to be good software for its purpose. The high price seems reasonable for something so few people would actually pay for. PowerPoint files can be saved to play directly in the IE browser. Anybody can download Microsoft's PowerPoint player for free.

This site was recommended to me a week ago. Since then, I've visited daily, but this is the first program I actually downloaded. The program downloaded and installed without a hitch. (XP Home, Dell Inspiron Laptop 6400 Laptop.) I already had a Power Point Presentation to work with, so I dove right in. With just 4 or 5 clicks, the program converted the PPT Show to an MPEG presentation that I was watching in 10 minutes. There were .wavs embedded in the PPT presentation that didn't end properly, but I don't think that was the DVD Converter's fault. The PPT slide transition was set to mouseclicks. I believe if I changed the transition to a timer before conversion, then turned the .wav file off when the next slide was shown, I'd get better results. As for DVD, I can't test the program with writing to CD/DVD right now as I'm away from home.

I have very little experience with media (downloading, converting, etc.). This program is about as easy to use as Print Shop was 25 years ago. I can't vouch for more experienced and seasoned users, but if you, like me, are just delving into the media frenzy, I'd say definitely give it a try. Again, I can't vouch for success burning / running a DVD, but the MPEG was certainly a success.

This is the best PowerPoint to video program offered here on GOTD so far. It actually converted the embedded video so that not only do you see the the slides, transitions, etc., you also see the video. This is definitely a keeper for me. We do a lot of PowerPoints with video embedded, and will be nice to distribute it in video format to keep people from dismantling it easily.

Converts files but the timing option seems not to be working.
I set the slides to be 6 seconds but they fly through at about 1.5 seconds.

Will do some more testing. Anyone else tried this?
