Best Free PPT to SWF Converters

Microsoft PowerPoint is known to be one of the most powerful and flexible tools for creating presentations or slideshows. Still, ppt format has its own disadvantages for web-oriented users. Converting ppt to swf is the easiest way to make your presentation web friendly. Swf format or Flash is compatible with all platforms and browsers, optimized for distribution on the Web, secure and small-sized. Flash presentations are perfect for embedding into web pages and sharing. Also, they look exactly like original ppt presentations if they are converted with a good tool. Today I offer you small reviews of two free PowerPoint to Flash converters.

authorPOINT Lite. This neat converter runs both as a PowerPoint plug-in and as a desktop application to give you more options. From within PowerPoint, you can set converting options (choose template, set picture and audio quality) and convert a presentation to Flash. authorPOINT creates nice looking slideshows with slides thumbnails, presenter's info, etc. Desktop application also allows batch conversion, adding your photo and logo to presenter's information, edit presentation details.

authorPOINT Lite toolbar

iSpring Free. It is PowerPoint add-in which works within PP and transforms ppt presentations to swf quickly and easily. It has Quick Publish option to convert ppt to Flash within a minute and Publish options which lets set such parameters as presentation title, slide range, autoplay and loop play, slide duration, animations, background color, etc. Besides, iSpring can help you insert Flash into PowerPoint presentations.

iSpring Free toolbar

These tools have also something in common: both of them offers uploading PP presentations to the Web – authorPOINT to authorSTREAM or WiZiQ and iSpring to SlideBoom. Both generate HTML. Both tools have professional paid versions with advanced options. I like and use both of them and hope you'll like them too.

Ispring converter is really a nice converter. Alternatively, you could use some cost-efficient converters to convert your presentation to flash, such as PPT2Flash

@phtar: Thanks for your comment.
I know PPT2Flash, it's a neat tool, still for people who don't need to convert presentations everyday free converters may be the best solution.

@Kafo When AuthorPOINT converts ppt file for you, it creates a folder, which contains not only html file with the player you want to get rid of (with tabs, info, etc.). It also creates swf file which can be embedded into a web page as well as any other flash object via 'object' tag without the player.
