View Full Version : link to powerpoint viewer outside browser

Is there a php code that can be inserted into the target so the powerpoint viewer comes up and plays automatically outside the browser window?

what do you mean outside the browser? google docs can play powepoint i believe so visitors would get a choice of viewing or downloading (afaik)

If I create a straight link the options are to save the file then open it in powerpoint viewer or the dialog box asks you to select a program to open it in the browser, which powerpoint viewer isnt one of them even though I have it on my computer. Id like the user to be able to click the link and have the PP viewer auto play. Instead of target="blank", is there something I can put into the href to make PPviewer the target?

I dont like powerpoint and only have the viewer but the customer already has the PP files and I dont have the budget to recreate them in flash

You can also use slideshare for your powerpoint presentations.

Thanks you guys. I used googleDocs to make a PDF. Tried a couple of the free PP to swf converters but they didnt want to open the files. Not sure what was wrong, but Im happy
