Topic: Video conversion - now with pan and zoom - great!

Been away from Soundslide making for a while as I got frustrated at not being able show people Flash-based movies on things like newer Android phones or Google Nexus so only just discovered you've introduced the convertor that includes movement, and it's great! Stuck a bunch of soundslides on YouTube but think I'll look into Vimeo - sounds like better quality. So, just wanted to say I'll be using SS again now, and thanks Soundslides team!

Re: Video conversion - now with pan and zoom - great!

In early 2011 we introduced a couple things that may be of interest to you. One is the addition of movement to the video converter, and the other is a shell to allow Soundslides slide shows to play on devices without Flash.

Soundslides and Soundslides Plus now include an optional shell called "iOS_html5." This displays the normal Flash-based player on computers and devices that have Flash installed, and an HTML 5-based player on those that do not (such as the iPad and iPhone). The HTML 5 player is not as sophisticated because HTML 5 does not yet have the same capabilities as Flash, but we have included as many features as the technology will allow. Here are the download links for the update if you do not already have it:

Soundslides Plus:
Mac OS X:
http://store.soundslides.com/apps/downloads/PlusMac/
Windows:
http://store.soundslides.com/apps/downl … usWindows/

Soundslides:
Mac OS X:
http://store.soundslides.com/apps/downloads/Mac/
Windows:
http://store.soundslides.com/apps/downloads/Windows/

Once you have installed the update, you can open your project, click the "TEMPLATE" tab, then the "SHELL" tab, and select "iOS_html5." Then save and export your project and upload it to your web server as you normally would.
