Why do I need third-party software to run SlideDog?

To show your presentation files as accurate as possible, SlideDog uses the best file viewer programs available for the various file formats (PowerPoint is used to show PPT files, VLC is used to show videos, etc).

We could have made SlideDog to not rely on third-party software, but then we’d have to resort to conversion of all the presentation files into a standardized format. This process almost always leads to loss of quality. Transitions will sometimes be lost, animations won’t show up correctly and fonts may appear less crisp.

All the programs needed to run SlideDog are free. If you don’t need to show a specific format, you can skip installing the required software viewer for that format.
