AuthorStream is a completely free service to upload your Powerpoint presentations online for free. You can share those presentations with others. AuthorStream also lets you present your Powerpoint presentations live to other people as an online presentation. All for free!
AuthorStream packs some really nice features for sharing your Powerpoint Presentations online. I am really impressed with the feature set, and the fact that AuthorStream is totally free.
Here are some of the features of this Powerpoint Presentation Sharing service:
Upload and Share your Presentations Online: You get 1GB space to upload your presentations for free. You can share your uploaded presentations with the people you want. You can even password protect your uploaded presentations.
Embed Presentations in Blogs and Websites: Once you have uploaded the presentations, you can embed the presentations in your website or blog. It provides a customized play for embedding your presentations, and you can customize the size and color of the player.
Download PowerPoint Presentations as Videos: This is one of the really interesting feature of AuthorStream. Once you have uploaded your Powerpoint presentation, AuthorStream lets you download your presentation as a Video that you can then upload to YouTube and share with a wider audience. AuthorStream lets you convert your Powerpoint presentation to FLV, MP4, AVI, or WMV.
Live webcasting of your Presentation: You can use your uploaded Powerpoint presentations in conference calls. AuthorStream will give you a unique URL, that can you pass to the audience. Then, all of them will be able to see the presentation as you present it. Best of all, they do not need any software to install. This feature itself makes AuthorStream a very useful software for business users, and sales people.
Slide Statistics: This is another impressive feature of AuthorStream. You can easily see who has seen your Powerpoint presentation, which slides have been seen the most, and which slide people mostly exit from. This information would come really handy in organizing your slides better, and making informed decisions.
AuthorStream is a really useful application, and has some really nice features. On top of that, it is totally free. Love it!
