Default Web design and video editing question

Here is my question. I have a power point presentation that I want to put on a web site. What I want is to click on a link, then go to the site and begin playing automatically, full screen if possible. I don't want that navigation bar on the side or anything. I just want it to play.

I converted the power point presentation to an avi and was going to try to embed that in the web page.

Any ideas on a way to make this look good?

Thanks in advance.

U dont need to convert it to an avi, just place a link to the .ppt presentation and it will play once the link is clicked. I am not really sure what u mean by side nav, do u mean when u open the ppt in MS powerpoint? If you click the link the file will no open in MS powerpoint, but the viewer should just start up.

I'm using sitespinner 2 right now and i've been doing web publishing for a while, but never had to deal with a ppt. The ppt has voice over and a background song in it so just linking the ppt is not an option. so far I've converted it to a wmv and got it shrunk down to 5 meg from 65 and i'm going to use different links for higher speed modems for better quality.

Thats my plan for now i guess.

If you leave it as a ppt and the visitor on the other end doesnt have Powerpoint then they wont be able to view it. You can give a link to the Powerpoint viewer they could download first though. I would make it a pps so it shows as a Powerpoint show.

Or if you make it an avi or mpeg etc it should play when they click on the link automatically. I dont know how you could force full screen though.

Lightbulb ppt to video

Hey, a good way to make a video of high quality is to convert powerpoint to video format file (AVI, ASF, WMV, MPEG, VOB and MP4)
i usually use geovid programm http://www.geovid.com/Presentation_to_Video_Converter/ or you can find it at vidflash.com

a good tool to make a video with a soundtrack!
