    Media for Frontpage Web (FP 2003)

    I have a web that is up and running, still need to do some tweaking, but my main issue is that I have some powerpoint slide shows i created for homes. How do i get these to run from the web page? I tried doing a hyperlink and it doesn't work. Is there a different "media" or "virtual tour" tool that I could be using that is better? Need help! <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Hi Lynne

    Could you just save the presentations as HTML and create a link to them <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    I don't remember seeing an option to save it as that, but I will look. If I do save it as that, will it run as it should?? Sorry just not sure on this. I want it to look good.

    There are a number of different approaches to distributing PPT content:

    (1) Allow downloads for local viewing (either with the .ppt or .pps extension); provide a link to the Microsoft viewer for those who don't have PowerPoint.

    (2) Use "Save As/Save for Web" to create an HTML slide show; often this leads to a rich experience in IE and a weak experience in other browsers unless you tweak it yourself; some animations will be lost.

    (3) Convert to streaming media (e.g., Flash or .wmv); typically requires add-on authoring software; emulation of animations may be weak in some cases.

    (4) Rebuild from scratch as a web-based experience; may be very time-consuming unless you have an easy to use "template" for all your shows.

    (5) Forget about PowerPoint and outsource to a company that generates web media that integrates with your site (example: ForthMedia VirtualTours).
