But first...a very short admission: Some of you may know that this isn't the very first version of Producer. The previous version had a few bugs (a.k.a. issues, problems, nuisances) and we needed to fix a couple of incompatibilities with current browsers. And now it's ready for prime time.
Here's what you can do with Producer:
Oh, and one more thing: it's free! Download it today and try it out.
Note: If your computer has never had Office 2007 or earlier installed, you’ll need to manually install the Office Animation Runtime component, as it is not installed with Office 2010. You can download that from here.
I am using PowerPoint Beta 2010, downloaded the Office Animation Runtime and the Producer. Installed both.
Producer will not run; doesn't see PowerPoint on the system. Any way to fix?
Well shoot! How about you give me some more info and I'll contact the Producer folks straight away:
- OS? 64 or 32 bit?
- Have you used PPT Beta 2010 onits own with no issues?
- Any other things you think would be helpful for troubleshooting?
Sorry you're having this trouble. Look forward to hearing from you - feel free to write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bruce -- Spoke to one of the PMs of Producer and he told me that they're "not supporting the beta anymore, sorry." Well, I thought that was a lousy answer so I'm looking into finding you other support options.
For the moment, I suggest unistalling Office and Producer and then reinstalling. I know it's a pain but that often solves many problems. Give that a try and report back!
Bruce: Write to me at email@example.com. I have something for you...
Finally! I waited for it for 2 years. Microsoft Producer is a very simple but very useful add-in. We use it to record courses at the university and put them online on our server.
The biggest problem we have with the 2003 version is that publications are readable on Internet Explorer only. People who use a MAC can not read the publications. Is this new version of Microsoft Producer allows reading files on Firefox?
You should advertise more of this software. Is there an official web site on Microsoft Producer ?
"and we needed to fix a couple of incompatibilities with current browsers. And now it's ready for prime time."
I just try it...
it doesn't work with Firefox !!!
anything is fix !
Is there a way to use producer to stream an event live with both video and Powerpoint slides, or does Microsoft have a product in the pipeline to do this. It is becoming more and more popular a request from our clients.
@ Colin - Checking with my PowerPoint guru; I"ll get back to you later today.
I'm loving Producer 2007! I've used the product for years to archive our all staff meetings.
One recent problem I am having though is Producer can't import the MPG files from our new Sony Handycam. When I put them in the timeline, only the audio channel fills in. The video track is blank. When I try to preview the video, it's just blank and no sound.
I'd post this to the Producer Support site . . . but I can't find one.
Any suggestions on where to look for a solution?
BTW - Win 7 32 Bit, Office 2007 Pro Plus, IE 8, no custom codecs, just what came with WMP.
Greg V: I think I may have an answer for you. It sounds like you need to install a 3rd party DSHow encoder. Your mpeg might be an mpeg2 - I can't really say; I'm told that Windos 7 can be fickle...
Now, I can't really endorse a non-Microsoft product (I do love my job...and my house...and my health care) but gosh I'veHEARD about these two decoders: FFDShow (ffdshow-tryout.sourceforge.net) and KLite (www.free-codecs.com/.../K_Lite_Codec_Pack.htm). Not saying YOU should try these; just saying I've heard of them...
Will you let me know if this works?
Sure hope you check back here for an answer. Folks, I Do try to answer everyone's questions...
Colin: Why not use LiveMeeting? (office.microsoft.com/.../live-meeting-support-FX010242533.aspx) It has a lot of features and capabilities you described in your comment.
I tried both ffshow and K-Lite Codec Pack (which states it includes ffshow), but the same thing happened.
I have had success with Fast Video Convert Pro to convert the files into an AVI format. I was hoping to avoid the conversion process though.
Thanks for the info.
Greg - I did a BIng search and came up with a few things to try (that you probably already have but I'm stumped):
(this says to the Sony software PMB to convert although the writer of the post said it's "substandard.")
Also found a newsgroup where you can pose a question: www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00302.htm
I'm using Producer for the first time. When I tried it yesterday, it didn't seem to have a record of the slide timings. This was even after I opened Powerpoint using the 'show slides and record timings' option. I am still not sure how this is meant to work. Is a special timing file created that gives the duration between clicks? If so, where does Poserpoint store this file and what is it called?
