This is a follow-up to a question I asked in August. I'm still
struggling with trying to create something that can be used in other
systems. Here's what I've done:
1. Created a slide show in Impress. Slides auto-advance after 5
seconds, and transitions are used to play appropriate music files.
Previous tests by myself and others on this list have shown that the
links to the audio files follow relative rather than absolute paths.
2. Saved as .pps file. Copied presentation and audio file directory --
pathing kept intact -- to thumb drive.
3. Open .pps file on another computer that doesn't have LibreOffice
installed. Slide show runs, music does not play. Confirmed music files
4. Rename original audio file directory on my hard drive for testing.
Run slide show from thumb drive on my own computer. Opens in Impress,
of course, and does not auto-run. Music plays properly.
This slide show is for distribution to others via DVD, and I'm really
getting frustrated with it. I'd hate to think that the hours I've spent
on it have been wasted and that I have to start over with another
application. But I can't assume anything about the software anyone else
has, and just about everyone has the ability to view a .pps file
regardless of their OS (I can be pretty sure, but not 100% positive,
that everyone on my distribution list is using either Windows or Mac
machines). Can anyone see anything I've overlooked?
