hey,
say i embed a few youtube (or other) videos and then autoplay the prezi. is there a way to let the presentation not just wait 4/10/20 secs at every pathpoint, but until the respective video is done playing?
help on that would be GREAT :)
thanks

Hi

good idea, still we don't have this feature in Prezi. We always listen to our user's feedback, so your request have been heard by open ears :)

I second this request. The Prezi I just completed (my very first!) includes three short video clips, and it would be great if the autoplay would allow the clip to play before moving on.

Apart from that, Prezi is amazing! Love it!

I just typed up this same question before seeing it had already been asked- and answered. I'm bummed that I won't be able to use Prezi at an upcoming conference due to this limitation with playing Flash videos in the Autoplay mode. Would have been fun to using something new and different- and would have been great exposure for Prezi.

This is essential for me too. Any ideas on when it will be available?

Zoli, when would this be available?

Maybe a better suggestion would be to set an interval per (hidden) frame.
So we can 'override' some frames in the autoplay.

On another topic reply, Zoli suggested taking a screencast of the Prezi in action, and using that as your primary playback for these types of applications. It is a second choice as a workaround but better than nothing until the feature is added...

Better timing for autoplay in general would be fabulous. The standardized times are not very useful. It would be fabulous if we could time each step on the path.

As a workaround there is a small piece of free software called 'Key Presser' which you can configure to control your Prezi with timings. In other words it controls the time intervals (while your away) by sending key presses to the keyboard (any keys combination - right/left arrow) and in this way you could time the video/progress through the Prezi. Seems to work . . .

Is this feature still not available?

Was planning to use prezi on an info screen, but if I can't add timing to the video it wont work out.

as angela points out, the whole autoplay timing issue is way too generic.

This is just like so many features that Prezi takes me 95% of the way, but the missing 5% sends me back into Powerpoint.

Angela put it very well. This is the same reason why, despite having experimented plenty with Prezi for two years, I still have not propagated it to all my employees.

Please take into account this must represent a major problem for the development team. It seems to me an extremly difficult to solve issue.
It is possibly at the same level of difficulty of allowing the user to enter an autoplay time instead of selecting between 4,10 and 20 seconds.
Nevertheless why would you need let ́s say 7, 9 or 30 seconds ?

Not sure if this is suitable option but here it is:

This works for downloaded prezi for mac and pc and also on your own websites, blogs etc. You can set the time for each path point in prezi each can be different so if you have a video you can just set the interval time for that path point to exactly the length of the video before it moves automatically to the next path point. You can control each to the second. we have customers using them as self running prezi's at trade shows and also on their own websites and blogs.

as i say just a humble suggestion and there are demos for you to test too

Пиздец! Какие-то левые чуваки уже давным давно написали дополнение для этого прези, чтобы устанавливать свои временные интервалы между прези слайдами, и зарабатывают на продаже этого скрипта, а разработики прези уже больше года не могут нихуя сделать!

Hi All,

I'd like to announce the release of PreziFly, a free software tool for auto-playing online or downloaded Prezis. Using its graphical interface, you record custom slide times as you advance through your Prezi. Then PreziFly will build an executable player file to play your Prezi automatically. PreziFly can also play an audio track of background music or narration or both, bridging the transitions between path stops and providing a smoother experience.

You can distribute the player file and audio track to users or use the player file to auto-play and auto-loop your Prezi at trade shows or conventions. Full support for pause and resume is provided.

PreziFly works on Windows PCs or in Windows partitions on Macs. It is easy and convenient, and it's free. See http://www.myreckonings.com/prezi for more details and to download the software. You can also download demo player files for online and downloaded versions of a new Prezi describing PreziFly at

http://prezi.com/8vvkz5o9ykp_/

The combination of PreziFly and Prezi’s new theme, font, and color facelift moves the entire system into a compelling presentation vehicle for both “podium” and “web” presentations, both delivered in person and unattended. This functionality makes Prezi a platform with appeal to the corporate world. It is a full-up method to produce exciting presentations in a variety of venues.

Cheers,

Ron Doerfler

Thanks Ron for your contribution.
I insist it is a "shame" that users have to build this "workarounds" more or less elegant to add "BASIC FUNCTIONALITY" to the product.
Prezi team even recognized more than one year ago this was a "good idea".
Instead of focusing on demanded functionality they keep adding "nice to have" stuff.
Sorry to be so critic with Prezi team, but I am fed up.
The product idea is so good that it really hurts to see how are you (no) progressing with its development.

GREAT JOB!!!
Does anyone know how to take the created file and put it in a program like Audacity and have it mark the breaks?

Hi Al,

In PreziFly the last recorded slide times, one per line in milliseconds, are stored in the delays.txt file in the supportfiles subfolder (and you can also save a set of recorded times into a different file at any time that will be in the same format as delays.txt), and if you open that file you can add up the intervals as you go and manually create bookmarks in an audio recording application such as Audacity. That's the best way to do that if I understood your question correctly. One option, by the way, is to copy the contents of that file and paste them into an Excel spreadsheet, which will then have one interval per row, and then swiping a set of rows will show the total of the times at the bottom of the Excel window.

Glad to see there are options out there, but kinda surprised and definitely disappointed that this isn't built in to Prezi. Prezi rules, but this feature is a necessity for it to gain wide acceptance.
