Create A Youtube or Movie Export!

One of the big things that online presentation software companies like prezi constantly miss (and this goes for all of them not just prezi) is the ability to export your presentation to a movie file such as AVI or MOV or MP4 or even export to YouTube directly.

Presentation tools offer embed functions for websites and blogs, but you cant embed a presentation to YouTube or other video sharing site - and that's where the mass eyeballs are...

This is not necessarily a development request (although you can treat it as one if you wish) but more a tip to any entrepreneur that wants to develop a presentation tool that will offer this one USP that will bring in the customers and wipe out the competition.

I can't believe that every presentation company has missed this killer feature, millions of people would pay to be able to easily add their presentations to YouTube or Vimeo as a complete video file in one click.

The response that I have had from other presentation companies are things like "it's not possible", "it would be too difficult to implement", "the technology doesnt exist". That's a losing strategy, and certainly thinking small. You get customers in proportion to the value you offer, and if it's difficult, innovative, or seemingly impossible, then it's a business idea that is the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

I hope that Prezi may take up the challenge and prove their innovative worth to the marketplace...

Hi, thanks for your idea. As a presentation tool, prezi's goal is not necessarily to have contents that work as videos. We would not leave the speaker out of the game. However, we know that in some cases it's nice to have a prezi in a video format especially because you can then add some special video effects to the presentation. For that, now you can use a screencast tool and record your prezi even in HD format. Your request would be a great option, and we'll return of course if we have any news about it.
