Insert Live Web Pages in PowerPoint Presentation Slide

PowerPoint LiveWeb is a powerful add-in which lets user insert web applications, i.e, whole web page on the specified presentation slide. This add-in comes in handy especially when there is a need of complementing presentation content by showing complete webpage on a slide. It can be helpful in demonstrating an ongoing progress on some web application project or simply for showing the content of specific website. The best part is that it can also dynamically update the web page content in real-time

To quickly insert live WebApp placeholder in slide, open the presentation and navigate to desired slide, now launch the add-in and it will show a new group under Insert tab namely LiveWeb.

  1.  Could someone please tell me if it’s possible to load a webpage before opening the slide?
    So when you open the slide the webpage is ready, and you can just play the video/website you added with LiveWeb right away?

    Thank you.

  2. I use the live web add-on. I have a Windows logo that takes about 9 seconds to fully load the url to an animated weather radar picture. Do you know a way I can speed up the process or at least replace the windows logo with something more revelant?

    The other question is the live web slide capable of having multiple content on it so that I can maybe have some animation forward while the website loads in the background then moves to the front?
