PowerPoint To MP4/M4V
authorSTREAM converts presentations in video(MP4 or M4V) if your PowerPoint presentation has timings. A Presentation is converted to MP4 format only if it has transition sound or audio added through the “Record Narration” feature in PowerPoint. If a PowerPoint file uploaded to authorSTREAM does not have audio, then it will be converted to the M4V format.
Users can download such videos from presentation pages or http://www.authorstream.com/MyUploaded-Presentations/All. Users can burn videos on DVD using any DVD burning software like Nero. Just make sure that the DVD player, on which you play such DVDs, supports M4V/MP4 format.
CD/DVDs of PPT photo albums with music
authorSTREAM comes in handy when you want to play hundreds of your photographs with animations and/or background music on CD/DVD. Use the “Photo Album” feature of PowerPoint to insert all your photographs/images in PowerPoint. Add some animations and transition sound for background music and upload it to authorSTREAM.
You can check the ‘Private’ option on the upload page if you don’t want to display your presentation on authorSTREAM. After a few minutes your PPT presentation will be available on authorSTREAM along with the “Video for IPod” or “Send to YouTube” options.
You can simply download the videos of your photo albums and burn to a CD or DVD to share offline.
