Is there any way to launch a powerpoint without needing a capture card?

Thanks in advance

Hi jldpaula,

it is not possible to load a .PPT file direct into Pandoras Box. But you can export your presentation from Power Point as video file and use this in Pandoras Box - using CUEs to jump between your slides.
I hope the above is helpful for you.

I often use StreamX to capture PPT without needing a capture card.

The only time I've had issues with it is when there are embedded videos.
In this case, I would export those videos and host them inside of Pandoras Box.

I hope this helps,

It is possible to launch a PPT with PB Spark running on the machine with PPT. Send remote commands from Widget + the timeline.
