How to Convert PowerPoint to Flash SWF Format

If you want to share your PowerPoint presentations on your website with other people, you will find out that PowerPoint format is not supported. First of all, you need to have Microsoft Office installed on your computer. What’s more, Microsoft Office has not plugin for web browsers so it is impossible to view PowerPoint directly within browser. That’s why the topic, convert PowerPoint to Flash SWF format, makes sense.

There are many benefits of converting PowerPoint to Flash SWF file, such as greater accessibility, compatibility, smaller file size, sound integration, streaming, secure, email-ready, etc. After saving your PowerPoint as Flash SWF video, people can easily view it with the help of Adobe Flash Player Plugin, which is already installed on most computers.
