Introduction

Most of us are familar with PowerPoint to Flash conversion -- this happens automatically on slide sharing sites like Slideshare, Slideboom, Authorstream, etc. and there are tons of add-ins available that do the same locally on your computer. However, converting PowerPoint to a video format and sharing it on a video site like YouTube has never been as easy as the PowerPoint to Flash option. The product I am reviewing today addresses this area and also converts your PowerPoint presentations to the MP4 format so that you can upload it to YouTube or watch it on your iPod. And did I mention that the product is free!

About Acoolsoft PPT2YouTube

Acoolsoft PPT2YouTube is from Acoolsoft, a Shenzhen, China based company that created other PowerPoint conversion programs like PPT2DVD, PPT2Video Converter, PPT to Flash etc. You can learn more about PPT2YouTube from their site...

Acoolsoft PPT2YouTube is a freeware program that converts PowerPoint presentations to a format compatible with YouTube video (MP4). The application converts your PowerPoint with animations, transitions, sounds and video clips retained. You can import 12 presentations, and view the conversion process with a task list manager. The Auto PC shut-down option turns off your system off after converting PowerPoint to MP4 videos. The output file will be MP4 (Divx, Xvid) format with 640x480 pixels resolution, and will possess a frame rate of 30 frames per second.

Note: The output MP4 video can be customizes if you upgrade the application -- the free version doesn't allow the user to do any type of customization beyond the defaults.

My contact at Acoolsoft for this review was Joan Andrew -- thank you, Joan.

Conclusion

For this price, PPT2YouTube performed far better than my expectations -- you however do need to register on their site with your e-mail address to download. Of course, you can use a disposable e-mail address for that -- but even if you don't, the product does exactly what it promises!
