If you've got a PowerPoint presentation you want to share with others, but are having problems doing so, then DVDShow for PowerPoint is a simple solution. It converts any PowerPoint presentation into a an MPEG movie file or lets you burn it to DVD so you can distribute it as a DVD and play it on a DVD player.

Using it is quite simple. Just tell the program which presentation you want to convert, choose various options (such as the aspect ratio) you want to use, and it goes to work. First it previews the presentation for you, then it converts it and burns it. After that, you can distribute it to anyone you like.

The key question, though, is why would you want to convert a PowerPoint presentation to a movie file or DVD in the first place? If someone doesn't have the capability to view PowerPoint, that would be one reason. It would have to be someone very special, though--such as your boss, your best customer, or your mom--because there's probably not a lot of need for this program, particularly given its $40 price tag.
