Showing your OpenOffice Impress presentations online

I've been using Impress for some time to create presentations but I used to upload them as odp files when I wanted to share them with the world (in case the world came to see them).

That is, until I "discovered" that exporting them to flash was a piece of cake.

  1. Open your presentation in Impress
  2. From the main menu select "File | Export"
  3. On the Export window select "Macromedia Flash (SWF)"

After that all that's left is

Upload the presentation to a website or file sharing site and reference it from a web page using the following HTML code:

<EMBED SRC="<uri for the flash file>" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" NAME="Object1" ALIGN="LEFT" WIDTH="400" HEIGHT="378" ></EMBED>

For example:

<EMBED SRC="../MyPresentation.swf" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" NAME="Object1" ALIGN="LEFT" WIDTH="400" HEIGHT="378" ></EMBED>
