PowerPoint 2010 Broadcast Feature

Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 has the ability for you to broadcast your presentation over the Internet for remote view or for viewers over the network. This allows you to show presentations even if there is no projector available. All you need is a Windows Live ID!

The PowerPoint broadcasting feature allows you to quickly share your PPT presentation. For this purpose you can either use a public “PowerPoint Broadcast Service”or an internal SharePoint server. The PowerPoint Broadcast feature generates a URL which you can email or share with your friends and they can watch you deliver your PPT presentation right from their browser.

Once you are ready to deliver the presentation, hit the Broadcast Slideshow feature under the Slide Show tab.

    It does not work. When I enter my Live ID credentials (3 times) the system tells me that I don’t have access to that service.

    What a naive! Thinking that it would work!
