Can I split a PowerPoint or PDF in SlideDog and insert videos in between?

No.

Not without manually splitting the .pptx or .pdf into two separate files.

SlideDog will however remember the last slide/page you were on when switching from a PowerPoint or a PDF to another item during your presentation.

If you want to do this when using mirrored screens (instead of extended / two-screen mode) we recommend you use the SlideDog iOS/Android companion app to avoid having to move the mouse to the bottom or top of the screen and show the SlideDog playlist to your audience

The SlideDog presenter remote feature it makes it really easy to jump between different files and media without splitting them up.

Can I select the start and end time of a video file in a SlideDog playlist?

Not without manually editing the video file.

What happens if I add the same file twice or more in playlist?

They will be treated as separate files. If you advance on one playlist item, the other won’t be affected.

Is it possible to automatically advance / loop through the playlist?

Yes, but this is a Pro feature. Free users can try this feature for 15 minutes from within the app.

If you go to the “Settings” and “Preferences” menu, you can check “Advance Automatically” under the “General Settings” tab. SlideDog will then advance to the next slide or file automatically (will jump to the next file if at the last slide of a slide deck). Videos will be played until the end before jumping to the next item in the playlist.

To enable looping of the playlist, tick the box next to “Loop Continuously”. SlideDog will now jump back to the first file after completing the last file in the playlist. All files will be re-set and play from the first slide/page/frame.

Can I embed SlideDog playlists in a website?

No.

SlideDog playlists needs SlideDog Free or Pro installed in order to play. In addition you’ll need the viewers of the different file types (i.e. Office PowerPoint or PowerPoint Viewer for .ppt/.pptx files).

A presentation publishing platform we can recommend is speakerdeck.com. It has a clean interface and is without ads.
